What is Site-wide link or backlinck definition ?

A sitewide link or backlink is an outgoing link which is on every page of a webpage. Site-wide backlinks are often found in specific parts of page templates and thus are all over the website. Sitewide links are often in webpage footers.

Some site-wide backlinks are legitimate and useful for visitors, and others are obviously spammy links.

To be side-wide is to little or no effect for SEO purposes. It may even be counterproductive as spammy site-wide links may incur penalties through manual inspection.
