CSS Positioning With Google In 2015

Jan 13, 2015 - 9:05 am 10 by

jocking for positionSEOs have been using CSS positioning for years and years as a way to get the more important content positioned in the source code above the more boiler plate content, such as headers, navigation and so on.

But now with the way Google fully renders your final web page, does it matter. If Google sees and renders your header and footer and boilerplate content on your site, do you need to bother to put your primary content for the page higher in your source code?

A WebmasterWorld thread asks this specific question.

The truth is, I don't think CSS positioning did much for the typical web page. Even before Google fully rendered the final page, it still was able to figure out your site and page structure from your HTML source code for the most part. In any event, does this mean that it is less important to do CSS positioning?

What are your thoughts?
