HTML How to Make a Website Creating HTML Content Build the Footer

Why don't we use <ul> </ul> in the footer?

Hi there

I was wondering why we don't use <ul> </ul> in the footer. Is it just in this example that Nick opts not to use it? Or is it some sort of HTML rule not to use Unordered Lists in the footer?

Thank you!

There's no rule preventing you from putting un-ordered lists in the footer. It's more of a personal design decision.

It's not that you can't do it. Your code isn't going to break when you do use it in your footer.

I guess it has something to do with how you want google to read and display your website. If someone is googling Nicolas Van Bylen for example you want google to display the UL list of your menu with "home - portfolio - in commission - about -contact" and most liley not the stuff you tell in your footer.
