    i have a question about backlinks.

    is blog post better than footer link(full site)?

    let say i have a website indexed more than 500000 pages in big G, and i add a full site footer link to a new website.

    Is it good?

    The popular wisdom is that site wide links (same link on every page) are generally devalued by G. A better solution would be to link to your target page on only some of your pages, also changing up the anchor text and location of the link.

    In context links inside proper relevant blog posts, in a prominent part of the site and with the keyword anchor text you want, are some of the best links you can get.

    I have to agree that a link in a post is much better, footer links are about a weak a link as you are going to get from a site and all those links from the same site are going to be devalued anyway. Links in content are much better than links just sitting out there by themselves with not support.

    Another advantage to the blog post is you can backlink the post page using your keyword and give that link some extra boost, not really something that is going to be effective with a footer link.

    Contextual links are always best. Preferably home page or closest to the root domain as possible.

    I have been trying out a trick where I rotate my anchor text in a sidebar. I have 6 or 7 links each with about 20 keywords that will randomly be pulled as the anchor. This is across a 50k post forum. I haven't seen much of a result to be honest. Contextual links seem to do much better.
