    Hello guys,

    I want to start working on a site and I will be promoting a pay per download CPA offer. I want to put an article of 2000 words on the homepage but I don't want the users to see it; since is about a download, it will look stupid and unnatural. So I was thinking to put it in a tab.

    Here is the theme I will use:

    Code:
    http://mythemepreviews.com/oceanic/download_now/
    Like you see the theme shows the first tab when you load the site. I want to put the article in the last tab. Is this bad for SEO? I mean, having 3 tabs with 100 words each and the last one with 2000 words. Will Google think I am trying to hide the content or something like that?

    Thanks!

    I'm not entirely sure but don't search engines read the HTML code?

    In that case i don't think it would make any difference. (Again not sure :) )

    I am thinking the same but one tab will have a lot of words comparing with the other 3. I am interested to know if this will have any negative impact.
