I'm working on a mobile website and I have to consider quite many links within the footer - depending on the country version from 13 to 18. The links have to be in the footer, so there's no discussion here.
It's possible to group the information and make up 3 clusters.
Option 1: Link lists
I actually don't mind the long list as the cluster titles give a pretty clear overview of the available clusters. I do not consider the page length / need to scroll a bad UX.
Option 2: Clusters
However, I'm still wondering if it would be preferable to use an accordion instead. The first cluster integrates the most important contents of the website - so I wouldn't use the accordion here. But cluster 2 and 3 might be collapsed initially.
I like the idea of the accordion as it organizes the information. Yet, I guess I'm hiding information at the first glance.
What're the pros and cons for one solution or the other?
