If you make good use of your Footer areas, It’s possible to add real value for your readers, and for yourself as well.   Many site owners don’t bother with putting anything at all in their Footer Areas.  This gives a clean look to the page, but it also misses out on potential marketing and internal navigation opportunities.

Yes, it’s true – the footer is right at the bottom of the screen, and readers are allegedly famous for not scrolling down the page more than a couple of flicks of the mouse, at most.  But…if you have written articles with great content, and great value for your readers, they will stay engaged.
