The role of detailed footers

I have noticed a trend in websites using big detailed footers that
contain site maps, but a lot more, like a mini-homepage. Look at the
bottom of these two pages for example:
http://www.americanidol.com/
http://seekingalpha.com/article/131737-five-ways-this-bubble-may-end

I understand this has something to do with SEO, but there may be more
to it. Have others in this community investigated this novel UI on a
usability or wayfinding basis?

Site Map - How important is it as a link?

Site Map: I have been wondering how important the link "Site Map" is which I
am planning to do away with on a corporate website?
What I am looking at is to have those few sections and their sub-links
upfront at the bottom of the page for all the subsequent pages besides the
home page. Is this going to be too much information for the user to handle?

I need all the advice you can give regarding this.

Thank you.
