Not at all. In fact, it is a great idea!
|Or is this pretty common? |
Not common at all because many do not understand source ordered html. Working with CSS-P is an excellent strategy for a variety of reasons, SEO being one of them.

Man I'll tell you! I want my site to LOOK the way I WANT it to.. but I also understand that keyword right copy is important too. I also understand that it is important to have it higher in your code..
So it hit me, use css position to move it... .. not like totally to the bottom, but just a better spot..

This really has nothing to do with hats. This is what is referred to as source ordered content. There is nothing black about it.

I am using that "trick" on my site.
I have everything in DIV tags with absolute positions. This makes it possible for me that in the source code I can have first the heading, then the content and last on the page I can have the navigation menu.

But wait! Please, let's not classify this as a trick. It has an official name...
All you are doing is absolutely positioning your content to be source ordered. It is not a trick. It is a design strategy which few are using at the moment. I've been trying to keep this CSS-P stuff under wraps, shhh! ;)
Take a look at your absolutely positioned content in Opera's User mode. That is pretty much what the spider sees.

Thanks for the term CSS-P.
You learn something new each day ...
And for those who hase not yet learned CSS there is the good old "table trick". Actually called "table trick".
<td><!-- an empty table cell -->
The content of the page goes here.
<td>The navigation menu goes here.</td>

Yeah That's the way I used to get my nav out of my way.
At this point, my main nav is on the right.
