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


Couldn’t you use jquery to add the text-indent style? For those with javascript turned off it wouldn’t work, but I’m betting that it wouldn’t effect all that many users.

Since search engines aren’t really in the habit of reading javascript, you would be able to accomplish what you need and won’t have to worry about that potential negative.
