Footer links get you penalised in Google
I recently launched a new website and it was performing well until it got slammed in the search results and the site stopped ranking for lots of terms and the page impressions went close to zero. I wondered what I did wrong. So I after a month of wondering and trying different things I tried removing the footer links to my web design agency and the site has started ranking again. Even though my competitors have footer links Google decided to penalise my new site.
