In this case, a store has very long product names, and it also becomes redundant.
For example a page is specifically for WIDGETS
Instead of displaying the product names as:
they hide the word widget with CSS, to make it less redundant.
But the word widget is very important for SEO
So, does google index that word 'widget'that has been hidden with CSS?
Thanks so much

If you don't want the Internet visitor to see something then it is best not to mention it to the search engine.
In order to satisfy the Internet visitor's need for a decent, easy and comprehensive read; you may have to learn how to describe "widgets" in various other fashions. I understand this may require the most of your resourcefulness and innovativeness but the extra effort should prove well worth it in the bigger picture.
