I remember I read somewhere before that Google ignores those links at the footer especially if they are site wide.

What about Blogroll site wide links? Will google ignore those too? Will you lose more or less PageRank if your Blogroll is site wide compared to just Blogroll on Homepage only?

You're making some assumptions here that all of what you read is true. This whole concept of losing or bleeding PageRank is a bit strange. It's like a mathematical trick, based on the original PageRank paper, that may be true theoretically, but it's quite hard to see in practice.

The original PageRank formula is not what Google uses these days, though they haven't shared specific details about the changes. It's possible that the changes addressed this bleeding effect, since it doesn't make miuch sense to hurt a website for linking out.

If this is true, then it will be more beneficial to have my blogroll appear on every page instead of just only the homepage?

I don't know about being beneficial for you, but I doubt that it will hurt your site. If you make the test, please let us know how it works out.

From what we have been seeing lately it looks to be more true that it does affect your PageRank.

Have you tried changing the blogroll to every page instead of just the home page? Or putting run-of-site links in the footer? Some more detail, please, enquiring minds want to know!
