Benefits of Placing a Sitemap in the Footer

  • Engage user click and visit duration:
    As you may know, online readers don’t read everything on the page, they scroll and scan. Footer is probably the last place they look at before exiting. Placing a sitemap in the footer may attract readers’ attention and increase page clicks and views.
  • Make sure your visitors are not missing out:
    Sometimes your visitors might be too lazy to click on the sitemap link or miss it all together, having a sitemap in the footer can ensure your visitors are aware of every page.
  • Use your footer to promote links:
    You don’t really have to use the footer to list out everything, you can use it as an alternative location to promote important pages.
  • Save readers’ time:
    Having a sitemap in the footer allows users to quickly jump from page to page.
  • You save the visitors a click:
    By placing the sitemap in the footer rather than a separate page, you save the visitors a click.
  • Enhance layout design:
    Don’t know what to put in the footer? Perhaps a sitemap can fill up the page and make your site look bigger.

Tips For Designing Footer Sitemap

  1. Categorize – organize your links in categories.
  2. Use Headings – use headings or titles for each category.
  3. Be Consistent – the order of the links should be consistent
