Are Footer links important for SEO?
Internal linking for your website is important for helping your users navigate your website naturally and SEO. Search engines want to understand whether you’ve added footer links only for SEO purposes or if they exist to help the end-users as they navigate your website.
For example, if you have 80+ footer links pointing to various location pages, Google may notice and penalize you as these links are clearly set for SEO only and not the end-user.
