I'm thinking about designing a page to look the way I like, and usw CSS positioning to push the SEM copy to a more appropiate spot on the page (visually), but it still be first in the code.
Is this a bad idea, or is this pretty common?
Is this a bad idea?
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.
So it hit me, use css position to move it... .. not like totally to the bottom, but just a better spot..
I am using that "trick" on my site.
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>
