I have my web design company http://healthywebdesign.net in the footer of websites i have built but they do not show up on backlink checker. My rapidweaver built sites do show.
Do i need to add something to the robots.txt page (file)?

I do not see any such link on either site. If you want to add a link then do so but it may do more harm than good with search engines. If the search engines don’t think the backlink is relevant to the content on your site and does not provide value to your visitor then they could consider it a spammy backlink and penalize you for this.
The link in bottom of screenshot is link that has been there. The second link I added in a text widget using html, does not show up either. Everyone that designs websites places their link at the bottom .of page. You think that can do harm? I jusy read mixed reviews on this subject.
Thanks for the quick reponse Steve!
I have to use html cheat on all this type of stuff. Would this be correct. I added the code for a line break.

I want to make sure because I did an extensive robots when i used another software and it went bad for SEO.
I probably did not state that correctly. I was just wondering if the code was correct. but I do always have them open in new page which was something I did not check so thanks for the additional info Steve. I am familiar with the widgets etc. I always have to look up html online to create anything. I should try to learn more about it. The internet has some pretty amazing html tools. I only use themes that I have a good developer relationship with. The good ones are always willing to help.
