Hidden content may be harmful for SEO?
we all know CSS is helpful for making all webpages to be standard in a given font, color, etc.... just wondering, if i make color of a word same as the background's color in external css file, will search engines know i am hide some words ? will it hurt SEO ?
Google is getting smarter and smarter and it can find text's hidden using background color very easily. Search engine doesn't see the color, it just see what text/content is there in the page and it will find that keywords are stuffed in the page very easily. Better avoid it.
