Quick Note: We absolutely love WordPress and Jetpack and we believe it’s a good idea to give credit to such awesome companies that are creating world class products and offering their products for free. However, in some cases footer links can cause problems when SEO is concerned. You might also want to remove the link if you are creating a white label product for a client. Instead of completely removing the link you can make this link nofollow and still give the credit which is due.
