How effectively do footer links for SEO?
Yes, footer links are generally considered to be good for a website and SEO. They help to provide a deeper level of navigation for your visitors, and can also help search engines to index your site more effectively. One thing to keep in mind, however, is that too many links in the footer can potentially look like spam to Google, so it's important to use them sparingly and only include them if they're genuinely useful. With that said, if used wisely, footer links can be a valuable asset for both your website and your SEO efforts.

Footer links are definitely an overlooked factor when it comes to SEO. The footer of a website serves many purposes, and one of those also directly ties in with your website's ranking and performance in the organic search result.

It also helps in a good user experience as it provides a definite path to users for finding resources on the website.

I also recommend adding Sitemap in the footer as it helps search engines crawl your website easily.

External footer links are generally bad for SEO, while internal footer links can benefit SEO. Search engines devalue external links in the footer and too many external footer links can impact your rankings. Strategically placed internal footer links improve user experience and help with internal linking for SEO.

The benefit of footer links for SEO is that the page ranking per click is more accurate control due to the repeated links on pages. This repetition is helpful for the visitors to go directly to the contact, source, order, or other links that could be valuable for your visitors. When a visitor wants to find an order, he starts to search into the pages until he finds what he needs, and that clicks on other pages are counted like the visitor was interested in that page, which is incorrect, and that puts the traffic ranking of the page into wrong values.

I suppose that footer link is a strong backlink if you put it on a high quality site, I saw it improved ranking for my keyword on search engine.

for external link: Yes its is present on only one page, Not sitewide. Also mention the list type, like rel=nofollow noopener etc. It will help.
for internal links: Its always good to mentioned.
