Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
I came across a thread on a UI website discussing the detailed footers that look like mini-sitemaps.
A lot of the UI experts on that site believe webmasters are doing it for SEO.
Iím not convinced itís beneficial as it dilutes the link value. One of the examples has a sitemap with over 160 links in the footer of every page.
Whatís the point?

However, PR dilution is something many so-called SEO experts don't consider (they should). There is also the chance of keyword cannibalism and even an over-optimization penalty.
