Same situation here, never asked for a link or gave a link... I do give a link to new customer sites for about 6 months. This normally gives them a great kick-start. After the 6 month period I normally remove the link, by this time they have been adding content and are well on their way to standing on their own 2 feet. If the site has great content the inbound links normally just happen without any additional work.
