    I was just wondering if I insert article links into my footer, will the link juice get passed to them? is it bad for SEO?

    Within a same website, it should be safe. Still, no idea why don't you put them into a sidebar.

    footer links, blogroll links are also type of links you can build for site. But they not that much powerful as compared to contextual links.

    No problem for the question. Okay, many folks used to leverage on footer links and recent update on G algorithms might prove otherwise... users not having effective link juices anymore or worst being considered as spam.

    Why not tweak or integrate into your content.

    Wrong, and wrong.

    It passes a lot of juice, depending on the domain.

    And unless you have like 40 footer links from spammy sites, google aren't going to penalise you.

    I have sent 30 footer links from unrelated domains and had ranks for 2 years, ranking for a competitive keyword and it hasn't been penalised.

    Google says footer links pass way less juice then in-content links. They actually have a classification system on each of the link types. Apparently they can tell different types of links apart, maybe because people use the <footer> html tags?

    Yes, juice will pass but drain at the same time.
