I didn't see this exact scenario anywhere in forum...

    Here is client's request:
    1 Bottom of home page, put link to "additional articles"
    2 "More Info" page has links to 25-50 more pages of new content
    3 At bottom of each new content page add link to existing page (of related content) already on site

    So the question is, is there any SEO benefit (or potential harm) for linking related "old" content page on bottom of "new" content page, all within same website?

    Thanks!

See "sneaky footer links" http://www.highranki...ooter-links-349

That's a good- looking foot, Jill, but other than as a warning, does what Radify is suggesting here qualify as sneaky or spammy?  It is not uncommon to have a sitemap somewhere on a medium to large map to augment navigation, improve accessibility to perhaps older, archived pages.  I commonly jump straight to the footer for contact information which is all too often buried, maybe for a reason.

Without seeing it, it's hard to say. Depends on the motivation for doing it, how far down the page it is, what pages they're linking to, etc. 

 

If the links are important, they should generally be in the global top navigation.

Of course. However it's been a common practice for years to repeat one, perhaps several important links in the footer navigation/menu. I commonly repeat home, contact(!!!), maybe profile links, and maybe maybe something like latest news. "Not done in a spammy way, but to ensure that the visitor can find the most critical items." I seem to have a fetish for Contact info and phone numbers...

Pretty sure my article mentioned that I was not talking about links that were duplicated in both the main nav and the footer.

 

And my impression from the OP's post is that they were talking about different links, not ones already linked to. Which IS what my article was talking about.
