Is there a recommended way of setting the style in the div? Does it matter to Google whether I set the style right in the div or have a CSS style declared in the file or should it be in an external stylesheet? Or will Google index it no matter which way it's done? Thanks.
OK, thanks...I just wanted to make sure because I've seen many people speculating on forums that you could get penalized for having text within hidden divs but I too have seen other sites use it for navigational menus. Obviously I'm not trying to spam -- I'm trying to create a useful functionality.
I've been using this show/hide div approach for 4 years on one site - it offers extended product information for visitors who are interested. It's been working beautifully there, both for the visitor and for the search engines.
