    Does bolding the entire content of a blog post hurt SEO in anyway?

    I have a theme where, if you don't bold the text, you've got to squint to see the writing. Well, I do, anyway.

    Get firebug, find the style definition in your theme for the font, and then change it using a child theme or by editing your theme files. CSS is very easy to tweak like this. I don't know if it'll hurt you, but personally I would not bold the entire content I'd find another theme or fix it.

    Using Firebug you can make visual changes on the fly to the webpage and if you mess something up, you can just refresh the page and it goes back to normal. +1 for Firebug. Yeah that's a great tool. My website which started out looking like a default genesis child theme looks totally different now, you wouldn't believe it. It helped me learn a lot about CSS.

    I don't think that was his question... he asked if bolding an entire article negatively effected it for SEO. I wouldn't think it would, but it is an interesting question. Does bolding ANYTHING in an article effect how Google weighs keyterms within an article? No sure either. But it is an interesting question by the OP.
