Hello,

I have someone telling a client of mine that there should be a Wordpress icon on the homepage, since that is what the website runs on. I do not see any possible benefit to this, but hey, I could be wrong myself. Is there an SEO/SEM benefit that I am missing? I know the client has a separate blog hosted on wordpress. Perhaps they see a benefit of giving credit somehow?

I would rather not put anything other than what is needed on the site obviously.

Thanks.

Google can figure out Wordpress installations easly enough. In terms of added value as a result of adding a button, there will be no SEO or SEM benefit whatsoever.

At a push, you could argue that the button might increase visitor trust, but I would doubt even that.

maybe you could convince him just to mention wordpress in a comment, at the top of the HTML, if he really wants to credit them.

There is no SEO(in terms of backlink and PR) benefit for us. As the link we give is one way. The only thing we can do is associate our site with a popular/reliable brand by giving logo/icon and other providing channel for users to wp site.

There is no SEO/SEM benefit either but you can just add a picture to display your blog is powered by wordpress.
