About The Word
The footer is located at the bottom of the page and considered a separate section of the Web page. It should blend in with the rest of the website’s design and convey additional information about the site that may not be included in the header or sidebar.
Along with the examples given in the definition, some footers also include links to popular pages and posts within the site, subscription options, ways to connect via email and/or social media, and call to actions. Larger companies may have several footer sections with links to separate divisions or departments within their organization. They may also include FAQ, policies, and job opportunities in the footer. If designed properly they can add a lot of value to the page.
