Since releasing my modification of FH Freedom theme that I was planning to use for one of my own projects on June 15 I really didn’t spend much time on promoting it. I submitted it to couple directories and posted a note on it in appropriate location in WordPress.org forum – that is it.
Almost month and a half after its release I decided to take a look at the stats. According to my counter it has been downloaded 459 times to this date. Not a big number but considering the luck of promotion – it is a fair one.
I have added a small link to my site in the footer and would like to thank personally everyone who didn’t remove it. It is just a small way for me to benefit for providing for free result of many hours of my own work. So my next logical step was to find out – how many pages in Google search result contains exact phrase I included in footer:
“Freedom Blue Reloaded courtesy of WordPress Web 2.0 Guide”
I can’t say I was shocked … more like a pleasantly surprised to see results:
It is nice to know that while people had every chance to remove that link that decided NOT to and give credits to original author and me. And yes, I did visit a few of the sites and noticed that many added their own stuff in footer while keeping in tact the credit links.
Thank you guys!
