Advice on hiding content


Nov 12, 2015
Hi Guys

We are currently redesigning our site and I need to know, Are there any SEO issues with having a “read more” drop down? Also, are there any issues with having blocks of text taken out of the mobile design – this is for where they fit well on a desktop but not on mobile.
Google has come out on the record, that content hidden in accordians / dropdowns / tabs is indexed, and ranked. I'd point you to the article but I dont have 15 posts yet. Check Gary Illyes twitter Sept 14th 2018.

Or just think about how much of a UX disaster it would be if google couldn't rank or index theread moree or drop down functions via a mobile design. Just remeber to always keep some content above the fold.

We get it, advertisements are annoying!

Sure, ad-blocking software does a great job at blocking ads, but it also blocks useful features and essential functions on BlackHatWorld and other forums. These functions are unrelated to ads, such as internal links and images. For the best site experience please disable your AdBlocker.
