Re: embedding keywords in HTML

That is an interesting thought. But wouldn't spiders ignore HTML and CSS? I might give that a go and see what happens.

Cheers...

Re: embedding keywords in HTML

Not having tried class naming divs I cannpt give a definitive answer but seems questionable.... other factors may have an influence

Re: embedding keywords in HTML

Classes are used for elements that will appear several times on your page, but can not be covered by standard html elements.

<div class> has no effect in serps

Re: embedding keywords in HTML

Hi,
I bet that the search engines wouldn't want that keywords within html attributes or stuff like that had an influence on the ranking.
If a word is never ever visible to the user, SEs won't be interested in that word.
But they probably might check if you are doing some spamming.

Personally, I wouldn't try to improve a ranking by abusing a css classname for keyword stuffing.

Just my humble opinion.
