    Hey everyone,

    I have a technical question. So most of the SAPE-type links I have seen out there are hidden links on the homepage of a high PR website (in their CSS, they are in a div with left:-9999px or something like that).

    I have access to a site like this for one of my niches. I want to place a hidden link, but I don't want it to piss off the big G. Are there any specific tricks for how to do this? I know Google doesn't like links that are the same color as their background for instance...

    Tips? Thanks,
    YellowHats

    Invisible links are NOT Sape-type links, it's against Sape's rules.

    The best way to hide link is inside very small DIV, height:1px does the trick.

    I've been reading about this a bunch more for anybody who may be interested, I think Stizerg may be right. Haven't tested it so don't take my word blindly, but it seems that while they have caught on to using same color text and background link, etc - they haven't figured out links in divs where div is hidden out of view, not the link.
