    A header is just the top of the webpage and a footer is the bottom.

    Boda... have this discussion at work and with clients often enough. Even if there is little 'heat" on these links they do have some SEO value. Not as much as a few years ago, but still measurable. I started putting Social Media feeds down - Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, etc. there and have seen some bumps.

    I'm not really worried about that, they were just duplicated in some cases. We had the standalone links page that had a lot of the same links on it but that page went the way of the dodo when I had to remove vBAdvanced as it is what allowed for custom pages within vBulletin. I'm pretty sure I've got custom pages sorted coding them by hand so if I put the dedicated links page back up, I had planned on truncating some of them from the footer area. Obviously that will also (albeit marginally) help with page load time/speed as there won't be as much HTML to render.

    We may be stuck with vBulletin longer than I had anticipated because Xenforo's roadmap is up in the air with the troubles that most forums are experiencing.

    Were you needing something more specific? If so, the links in question are where it says ESSENTIAL INDIANA STATE, ESSENTIAL MVC, etc.

    So I looked through the Google analytic data on the old link page and pretty much the only ever clicked on was other team's forums -- like 93% of the clicks. Since that was the case, I scrapped the separate page and just put the opposing team forums in the footer for quick access.

    Also added some additional ISU links of interest.
