When Google looks at anchor text on a website, will it pickup the text if it is inside nested elements?
So for example:
<a href="http://www.google.com/">Visit Google</a>
<a href="http://www.google.com/"> <div class="circle"> <span>Visit Google</span> </div> </a>
The reason I ask is because I want to use css3 elements for certain links on my website, to style them as circles. But the anchor text needs to be picked up for these links, so I want to know wether or not the above is bad practice in this case.
