comment Links in natural text VS plain list format
I've also read that lists give some small unclear SEO boost as well, so yeah I guess it's a tie and the user wins.

comment How would a search engine see url encoded characters?
In regards to "Google is smart enough to decode escaped urls" - I certainly believe it, but by chance would you have any reference for this or maybe a link to another post here that supports your conclusion?

comment Is content inside IE conditional comments indexed by search engines?
@JohnConde: I think I see what you meant by "actual example". The screen shot is not real - I made it (note the fake URL and bogus page title). What I said was "I don't want to see something like this", meaning it hasn't happened. What I meant was the text in the screen shot is an "actual example" of some content that might appear in a CC on a real website. I think we simply have a communication issue.

comment Is content inside IE conditional comments indexed by search engines?
Do you think this is more appropriate for Stack Overflow? That's where I normally lurk but I was certain it would be migrated here. Sounds like the answer may very well be: "Comments are comments even if they are IE conditional comments, and comments don't get indexed", although one answer suggests that they might be. Maybe it's just a moot point because it's so extremely rare that one would do this, but I found it to be an interesting topic and couldn't find anything conclusive that specifically addressed the IE comments.

not optimization related, not related to "comments" in the same sense as the other 28 questions with the tag (is there an "HTML comments" tag?)

comment Is content inside IE conditional comments indexed by search engines?
Then can you tell me why the example being real one would make the question so easily answerable, and what the answer would have been in that case? Please keep in mind that I did not originally tag the question "seo", as it is not necessarily a question about optimization or improving search ranking. I'd like to know if even the last page of results could come up with content from the conditional comments.

comment Is content inside IE conditional comments indexed by search engines?
This was my suspicion, as CCs are merely comments after all. I wonder what the "usually" in the quote means, and if it applies to this case or not. Why did you ask me if the example content was real or not, does that have any bearing?

comment Is content inside IE conditional comments indexed by search engines?
@JohnConde: No it's not a real example. It could be, but theoretically it could be anything, like instructions on how to perform some task in IE. What's the difference? I'll admit that I'm asking mostly for curiosity's sake, and simply to know the answer. If there's something about the content itself that has an effect on indexing, I'd love to know about it.
