    Hi to all members,
    I have reading about the point that Matt Cutt describes, he says that using display:none property in CSS for keyword stuffing can penalizes site. I want to ask a simple question around this matter.

    I know that display:none will penalizes site if its uses in the following way:
    HTML:
    <div style="display:none;">my keyword 1, my second keyword, my other keywords</div>
    But what if I use the same thing in CSS class like this:
    Code:
    /* CSS Document */
    
    .myspecial {display:none;}
    and in HTML like:
    HTML:
    <div class="myspecial">some ordinary text with my keywords to mainly target</div>
    I am waiting for the answers and thanks in advance.

    It makes no difference from a google-bot standpoint.. when everything is aggregated at the client level the div class points to the parameters display:none either way

    Dont see why you would even do this.. It de-optimizes your page from a SEO standpoint..
