Footer Links Fail



Each page of your site should have no more then about 50 links on it. This is an example of some excessive linking in the footer of the site. It’s certainly not very user-friendly.

    You will find that this is not an seo fail ,
    Clearly its built into the eccomerce template in which the site is build with .Theres hundreds of companies with the exact same site and template .
    These links all point to pages withing the site and is a very good link structure !.

    Having this feature built into the site doesn’t mean it’s SEO friendly. There are plenty of web developers out there that build templates like this that have no SEO knowledge whatsoever.

    Wow, that is a pretty bad fail. Google wants webmasters to know that if any seo action taken on a website damages usability then it’s not a good idea to take that action. Clearly, a footer stuffed with links is not user-friendly.

    Damn this is terrible. I know internal linking needs to be powerful but this is just crazy lol. We don’t even need a footer links nowadays to be honest. Powerful content is the way forward
