The designer expects 5-6000 downloads of the theme, of which 1000 in the first month. Since people still have to actually start their blogs, I expect links to start showing up more or less gradually over a period of several months.
I don't see this as paid linking. The user gets a free theme in exchange for a link. No money involved. But will Google see this different?
Will this help my site, or will search engines discard these links, or even give my site a penalty?
Any experience? Any thoughts?
Thanks for the feedback guys!
Still wonder if anyone has been succesfull with this approach? I saw a competitor that derived major pagerank from this tactic.
