    Hey everyone,

    If i were take write an article which contained all my keywords i wanted to rank the page for and then put it right at the bottom of my page where no one would really notice it would i get in trouble with google for this? here is an example of a site doing this swesspharma dot com

    right at the bottom of their page they have an article that is hard to notice as its almost the same colour as the background. Im not going to hide my article like this as i know google is smart and can see if you are hiding keywords by using a similar colour to the background. i just want to put an article where most people wont see it but if they were to scroll down far enough they would be able to see it clearly.

    The reason i want to do this is the page in which im selling a product looks great but only has about 200 words of content, i want at least 500 to 600 words of quality content on the page.

    Should i just leave it as it is or would more content help with serps over time?

    thanks in advance guys

    people that get in trouble with this the most are ones that are promoting something that have nothing to do with their article. so, if your site was about viagra and your article was about car seats, google might be opposed to it.

    if your article is related, just below the fold, it shouldn't be a problem. if people go to your site to find car seats, and you have a big ad for car seats, they should feel they got what they asked for

    You wouldn't get in trouble as long as you're not violate the webmaster guidelines about (hidden text).. Do not use very small text / use text colour that are same with your background..

    I have a reltated question that I've been wondering for quite some time, what about hiding keyword rich articles in spoilerboxes?
