    I used a theme that has "Theme by Colorlib Powered by WordPress" on my latest pbn site... It has a follow backlink to Colorlibs website.

    Is this thieving link juice from me or am i paranoid and thinking too much :D

    I always remove the footer links just go into editor from the wordpress dashboard and then select footer. Within the code you will see a url to wordpress site and to the theme site both of the urls are normally in "". Just remove the urls from the quotes and save when your done.

    Remove it. No point having unnecessary footprints, especially if all your PBN sites use the same theme.

    I felt the same Bro !

    @OP, Thinking is good. Sometimes you have to stop thinking too much and just go where your heart takes you. Over thinking can stop the things before they ever get the chances to develop. - BB

    Its called attribution links. You can delete them or you can leave them. All themes have this, it doesn't matter. It wont affect your site rankings.

    Sometimes I delete these links sometimes I don't, it really doesn't matter.

    Its like asking :"Should I use red or blue color for my site? By default is red so I thought to change it to blue, because Google might hate my site for having same color as other sites with this template."

    OP mix-it-up as per your preferences. Remove footer links from some websites and leave on some.

    If the theme was developed by a porn studio that sells viagra online, you should definitely delete the footer link =) Otherwise, you are too paranoid about it.

    removing does not make any change. actually its unnatural if you only have one link to your page and nothing else ;).
    it is a contribution to the programmer which did the work and programmed the crap for you.
