In HTML or in Web Site we can use Hidden Div tags such as :


CODE
<div style="display:none;">this my web page</div>

Sure they'll see it.

And if you don't have a method to make the hidden content visible to real users you stand a chance of attracting a penalty for trying to be sneaky. You need to make sure whatever you show the engines is the same thing you show to real people using your site.

Just remember it's within context.

You can make stuff visible and show it upon mouseover, such as menu's etc and this is not black hat or 'sneaky', using hidden content and JavaScript to create dynamic content and user interfaces is totally acceptable.

Using CSS to hide content from users and only show it to the SE's, that is black hat, though I'm still at a loss how the SE's can tell the difference when they can't read/execute Javascript!

But don't take that as an indication to try it, somehow they do find out 'apparently'!

In the old days they found it from reports and having a real person go out to review the site. Nowadays they're a bit more automated, in that there are a few bots that are js enabled. Don't depend upon those to suddenly make your javascript navigation search engine friendly however. Most of the bots are still pretty dumb creatures. And it's not clear at all whether the few js enabled ones are looking to improve url discovery or simply looking for things like sneaky js redirects, always hidden layers, etc.
