    I have added lots of info related to my main keywords at the bottom of each promotional services pages. Heres one > http://www.realpeterbruce.com/facebookmarketing.htm

    I have made the text small and light so it doesn't take the viewers attention away from the main information.

    The question is, Does this help with SEO?

    If it does have an impact I will spend time adding bulk pieces of text to the bottom of every page.

    Pretty much the dumbest thing you can do for your site.

    The only fan I can think of that might be worth that high would be a compulsive buyer millionaire with unlimited credit cards.
    Back on topic, I suggest you that write a category page for each keyword you wanna rank at and then add a long good quality article about it, that would be better for seo. More over the way you tried to hide it might be considered as keyword stuffing (some1 confirm this please, i'm not quite sure).

    Not very helpful. Your main focus should be meta description, page title, page headings (H1, H2), image filenames and alt attributes, and correct keyword density in the content itself.

    The problem is one 'Expert' told me to do this. Now someone else says to not?

    It's hard to make any progress with everyone saying the opposite

    He's an idiot, let him know I said that. It's called hidden text and keyword stuffing, both will get your site removed from google.

    Just write proper content with the necessary keywords included and you don't have that problem. ANd on top of that, it won't look like shit.

    Perfect timing:
