I had heard invisible text was a no-no, but in this case, would it be permitted? I also heard that the google program ignores pages with invisible text or flags them for inspection.
I e-mailed Google about this, but I wanted to see if anyone here knew anything. I used the search but didnt find anything pertaining to this.
Instead, it's going to apply its invisible text filter. What that means exactly - whether your page disappears altogether from SERPs or it is just downgraded or the invisible text is not counted - I'm not sure.
It may be that it recieved manual inspection, I'm not certian. the page has been up for over a month with me working on either the front or back end every few days
What I've decided to do, is not have the text match the background, but it's still pretty dark enough to not stand out and look ugly, and it's font size is "1". Looks more like copyright info now I guess.
This may explain why a few of my friends with webcomics who are doing this aren't seeing as good of results as I am-- so I'm gonna give them the heads up on this about the SERPS thing.
