To be honest, I wouldn't bother. If the client doesn't want it, and
it's not adding anything to the site, why are you doing it?

And I'd say he's right. To the end user of the site, it's completely 
irrelevant.

Badges on a site won't do it. Spread the word by talking to colleagues 
in your area, participating in forums, mailing lists, running show and 
tell sessions at local web developer meetups, writing case studies to 
put on your blog, etc.


IMHO, of course,
