SEO and CSS

Today I read an article by search authority Danny Sullivan regarding, among other things, all of the recent buzz about Google spidering CSS files on webpages. Now, while there seems to be some validity to the issue concerning using css to cloak and hide duplicate content, I don’t see what the big deal is! At the SES conference in Chicago this past December, a number of search experts specifically addressed the issue of duplicate content and quite blatently said not to worry about it. So, why not just chill out? Furthermore, using css will only enable you to alter appearance or layout of content, NOT make it magically dissappear! So all the wannabe spammers are still gonna have to address the fact that Google will see their illegitimate tactics. So for the rest of us, lets all settle down. It’s not like it’s difficult to write valid css! -kenny
