NC for Hire

Just a tip.  Take it or leave it.  You can replace your display:none!important! codes inside your custom CSS with this more search engine friendly code, just make sure nothing snaps out of (or into) place before saving.

Use this instead:

#yourcontent {
position: absolute;
left: -9999px;
}


What does this code do?

It elegantly removes an item from the page, without affecting page flow or causing scrollbars. Much better than display: none; or even visibility: hidden;

    Nice. Depends what you're hiding though, from an SEO point of view, surely?
    Site description might make a difference, for example. Hiding things like add buttons etc won't make much difference.

    How about using javascript to hide  elements?

      im gonna make an educated assumption but i'll look more into it bernard....  because search engines do not read navigations injected with javascript, i would assume that removing elements with javascript would be effective visually, but in reverse injecting javascript elements may not be so good for SEO... and because javascript elements are technically removed after the page loads, those elements still exist on page

  • good :D
