Footer Links have NO value for Google

In case you don’t know, Google gives more value to links which are higher on the page content as compared to links which are on the lower part and it seems google completely discard below the fold link (the area which you see only while pulling the scroll bar down). The reason being, most of the footer links are either sold links or having the link of the theme and site designers and they are not quality, relevant and organic links, in short, Footer links have no value for google and google do not pass any link juice (or very very little) to make them worth it.

I think these changes are part of crack down on link sellers which were selling tons of links in footer, unfortunately people who buys links don’t understand that they are getting a bad deal as such links have no value.
