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://example.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.

Valid link types

You may only use link types that are

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