How to remove Prestashop 1.7 footer link

When you use Prestashop as your ecommerce platform, you often see a link at the bottom of your website that linked to Prestashop official website.

This is not a bad thing for your SEO, but it will distract the focus of the customers on your website, and indicate that you are an amateur.

Many years ago, one of the popular SEO tactics of businesses was putting backlinks at the footer of other websites. And their SERP rankings increased rapidly.

Until 2013, Google released the Penguin 2.0 update. This was the algorithmic rule that attacked unnatural link building, and the external links at the bottom of the site were penalized. Even reputable companies are badly affected.

This search engine does not accept this tactic anymore.

Nowadays, outbound links at the foot of the site are no longer penalized and no longer dangerous to your SEO. But they simply won’t be given any weight. It only shows that you are an amateur and certainly no one buys from a website with the words Powered by Prestashop.

In previous versions (1.6 or 1.5) we just had to switch some option in shop back office. In new PrestaShop 1.7 we must to edit template's file. On this Prestashop Tutorial, i will show you how to remove it!
