I have different kind of backlinks for many sites for different pages of sites. My experience is-
1. sitewide footer links ( or left or right menu type) have lost value, even may have nagative impact.
2. There are so many people talking about devalued blogroll links. But my experience has been quite opposite. Recently my new site has started doing well for keywords on pages which have most of its links from blogs. There are not sitewide. Links are from content, very on topic. Links from deep internal pages of blogs have given good ranking for competitive keywords.
