Does Css Text Color Penalize?
Posted 12 February 2004 - 01:12 PM
Related question - is white text in general just flat out too dangerous to use? I have yet another site where a graphic designer came up with a great color scheme - but requires me to use white text against a darker background - argh! I can think of reasons not to do white text, period, for human usability - but is it also just too risky when dealing with search engines? I have never, ever used white text before. Am I paranoid?

The engines rarely seem to penalize for font color, even if it's on the same background color because there are too many times where it is used for good reason.
In other words, I wouldn't worry about it.

I'm still wondering though, from the technical standpoint, whether any tricks out there being performed with style sheets are just the latest greatest ways to do some old black hat tricks that I need to make sure to avoid. Am curious to see what other posts might come up on this. Wish there was a white hat Smilie in here

Personally I would not use the same color for text and background.....this only produces hidden text. I do know that css gets spidered. I cannot tell you if they penalize for style that produces hidden text, but they could and personally I wish they would.
As for white text, there is nothing wrong with using it...especially on a dark background. LOL, it is funny that you mention your paranoia with that because I feel weird using white text as well....just me paranoia!
