Sidebar Layout : Never keep your site in single layout mode as you can not predict the future needs. Plugged Genesis child theme gives you setting for global layout which is used in default mode. But, it will show you all 3 layouts on the bottom of post editor screen. So this is where you can swith to full-width, left and right sidebar position.

The layouts are available for homepage, single post and every post or page that you may add into website. Mostly, magazine and content sharing websites use sidebar for content and advertisements.

The footer is also another important widget area which shows 3 columns to add any widgets. Bloggers mostly display Newsletter sign-up box, Contacts and custom links on footer.
