I have a choice to get a link from the hompage/wideside footer/article link which should I choose?
link from an relevant article from a relevant site will be far more useful that sitewide links.
But a homepage link has a much higher PR and a footer sitewide has so many backlinks pointing back to you.
I was reading a thread on BHW the other day where someone got a link in side bar and he was getting 2000 backlinks from the same domain but they are all useless. It isn't about a single domain giving you thousands of backlinks but in fact it is all about several different domains giving you a backlink. Makes sense?
My vote goes to the article/contextual link.
I don't think that a homepage/ sitewide link would have such a negative impact as long as you have much more article/ contextual links. So in this particular situation, if you just want to grow your domain authority, and the a/m condition is fulfilled, you should choose the homepage/ sitewide link. On the contrary, if you just want to rank higher a specific keyword, you should choose the article (contextual) link. Just my opinion...
As soon as I removed my site wide links,my site jumped back up the G search results. They are bad my friend, very bad indeed.
Articles links should help. Links within articles.
I will go footer!!
Link diversity is the most important thing, if most of your current links are in articles then go for the footer link, and vice-versa.
Your links and site must be relevant to your site.
