RIP SEO Footer Links

April 11, 2018

 

Footer Links, seo footer links, footer links bad for seo, footer links good for seo, do footer links work?

Do SEO Footer Links work? Are SEO-optimized footer links at the bottom of your web pages any good for SEO or are they bad? (does it hurt SEO?). The official answer as of now is No  - that SEO footer links don't work.

Matt Cutts today announced at the SMX conference that: “We’ve done a good job of ignoring boilerplate, site wide links. In the last few months, we’ve been trying to make the point that not only is link buying like that not doing any good, we’re turning the dial up to let people know that certain link spam techniques are a waste of money.”

What have your experiences been with SEO Footer Links? Are you finding that they no longer work? Is your SEO footer hurting your traffic? Let me know what you're seeing!
