Home Forums Other text-indent: -9999px = bad seo? Re: text-indent: -9999px = bad seo?


I was talking with a few of my colleagues about this issue too and which one would be more SEO friendly and/or carry more weight in regards to semantics.

Doing a little searching I came across this: [HTML5BP Github Discussion](“ “)

and also noted on the W3C HTML5 Specification here: [HTML5: Techniques for providing useful text alternatives](“”)

Hope that helps.
