Went to your site. It has footer module positions. Check to see what you have in those footer positions, and then edit in line with your requirements.

Add /?tp=1 to the end of your domain (http://design99.com.au/?tp=1).

Thank you but I am absolute beginner... so I don't understand how to follow the instructions given above.

If there is the footer module, does it mean it's in joomla where I can just edit and apprear on website directly?

Go to:
Extensions> Module manager> Look under "Position" (This gives you the position each listed module is in).

Then go to:
Add new module (Green button)> Select Custom HTMl module> Input title> Select position (the URL you have given shows that you have 6 Footer positions (footer a, b, c, d, e, & f). Select position "Footer a".

Then decied what information you wish to show in the footer area, and input that into the "Custom output" area> > Click Save.

The above should now show on your website , in the footer a position (you may want to tweak the contents further to get them exactly the way you want them.

That's because you have 6 footer module positions aligned together. try putting it into another of the footer module positions, or try the copyright module position.

Have you tried the copyright position? It does not have to go into the Footer module position. They are just names, and if the copyright position fits your purpose, then there is no reason why you should not use that one.

Follow the SEO process given by Leftfield:

viewtopic.php?f=544&t=474900

And in particular follow Googles Search Engine Optimization Starter Guide

sorry one more question - I want to change the font size smaller and move 'designed by desing 99' to bottom but I cannot find it anywhere that I can change the text.

I tried below but 'Designed by design 99' isn't in the coding.
1. Login to your Joomla 1.6 FTP file manager or FTP file manager.

2. Edit the index.php file in your default site template folder:

/templates/Beez_20/index.php

3. Search for the code:

<div id=”footer”>
<jdoc:include type=”modules” name=”position-14″ />
<p>
<?php echo JText::_(‘TPL_BEEZ2_POWERED_BY’);?> <a href=”http://www.joomla.org/”>Joomla!&#174;</a>
</p>
</div><!– end footer –>

4. You can either replace the code or delete the whole text.

a. If you want to delete the text “Powered by Joomla”, change the code to:

<div id=”footer”>
<jdoc:include type=”modules” name=”position-14″ />

</div><!– end footer –>
