    Homepage contextual links are the best in the business if you ask me. If you want to be on the safe side I recommend
    not having too many footer and sidebar links. A couple won't hurt. =)

    Sidebar and footer are only useful if they are adverts and might potentially send traffic.

    Go for in content links, preferably with the brand name mentioned on the page as well.

    One single link from homepage. Sitewide links can actually hurt more than help.

    Relevant contextual links are the best ones from pages that have as many high quality links as possible.
