I design and develop websites and one of the way to get client is by releasing free themes / templates and leaving link to our site in footer. I have now millions of backlinks but again that means my site has no organic traffic as google has penalized it for too many links (I guess so). Now, question is simple, I am giving people something for free and return I want them to have my link, certainly anchor keyword is important but more than that its for my business, to get more clients. I don't think that looking for more client through free work is wrong... from those free link people come to my site and buy premium themes / design if they wish so, my site has some natural activities too as it has a forum. But as its been penalized , that is going vein.. now what should I do, ask google to reconsider my site?
Using disvow tool is not practical, I have millions of backlinks form thousands of domains !!!
