comment Are creating websites for backlink blackhat?
@FiascoLabs I hear what you are saying.. Thought isn't that a bit extreme? We did get hit with the ban hammer for a day back in the day.. But we just said it was a seo mistake and we was back up number one the next day, we just dropped from that day onwards as we stopped any backlinking strategies.. I see a lot of people saying how they was banned for ever.. But Google need you to be there if you're popular just as much as you do. If people go looking for you surely you have to be there or people will just think Google is broken? Just to clarify I am saying that this is a BAD IDEA!

comment Are creating websites for backlink blackhat?
I agree it's a bad idea. The difficulty is how easy it is for a client to get sucked up into the "get you to number one on Google" especially a client who is pretty clued up on SEO. But when someone is saying they have the "secret formula" that Google won't find out with compelling examples I really need to find an article targeted at it specifically to prove a point. I also pointed out that they would own the links so if we break with them they will just take them sites down anyways, but they are still fighting how great they are.

But their point is they create sites and get their page ranks up to a reasonable rate before they link to you... I agree it's a bad idea.. But they have the base covered in the "links from relevant high quality sources"

comment Content Sliders (Nivo Slider) and SEO
Sorry I understand now. The way I have approached it currently is to load the image slide with a div above it with the text that slider contains, before I initiate the slider I use jquery to remove the text elements. So "google bot view" would see the text, but someone viewing the website will see the images. I was weary of doing this as I always thought hiding content for any reason was a big NO NO. But after some more research I see its more common than I thought. Thanks for the help

Or more to my point, a slider with the key messages of the website.

I didnt realize that was an issue with modern website.. Lots of modern looking websites have sliders at the top of the page. Do you have any resources on why this is no longer a good idea?

Would having hidden text between or above each slide have the same amount as weight on SEO as having the actual text visable on the page? I know that Google must make allowances for hidden content (due to all the JS used now days). But as long as the content is in the area of the images with the actual "graphical" text on would google know that its "display:none" ?

I would like to think just setting the title tag of the image would work. But I hear these days alt tags / title tags don't hold as much weight

The problem with doing that would be the text wouldn't animate with the rest of the image. What i'm looking for is a way to have the text in the image, yet still have the text there for seo purposes.

The text would be nicely styled text that would need to be positioned over the background image. The text maybe multicoloured / multi sized. I know there are basic titles for nivo slider, but I don't think there is anything better than that.
