Webmasters Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for pro webmasters. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Probably this is an obvious thing, but I am not sure about it. I created websites for my clients, and I am allowed to place back-links to my portfolio site. I placed a link in the footer, but I am interested to also place it into the html head. Is there any way to achieve this?

I have seen code lines like this:

<link rel="author" href="https://myportfolio.com"> 

I am sure that the author relation is not the proper value for that.

Doesn't matter. There is no SEO value in this no matter how you do it. –  John Conde Nov 22 '13 at 14:01
    
Google doesn't use author yet.... but it may do in the future as they keep indicating SEO value on the author from site to site. –  bybe Nov 22 '13 at 16:11

You may only use link types that are

There doesn’t seem to be an appropriate link type for the web designer/developer/master.
