Pop up or new page - what do you suggest?

Hi everyone - a question for everyone:

My site has a footer with links, of course, like every other site, and the page that each of those links to is simply a page with a written description on it.

I was just thinking of making those links open up a pop up rather than moving to a new page.

Anybody have any opinions on that? I mean, a new page is pretty usual but I wonder if a pop up might be simpler without sacrificing speed of loading or anything…

Might be a small design question but I look forward to any and all comments!!

Thank you!


I’d prefer links and separate pages for SEO purposes.

Understood. good point to consider, thank you
