My customers are eager to show news categorized in tabs. I recently developed it for them.
In my experience in web designing,
display:none is used widely in implementing tabs. I also know that it is not good for SEO.
Is there any way to have tabs but without hurting SEO factors?
Who said display:none is bad for SEO? That sounds like a myth to me. There are lots of legitimate reasons for using display:none and as always it's not the technique but the intent. Using display:none for style purposes is perfectly fine.
- There are legitimate reasons to use
display:none, but Google might ignore hidden content (i.e. if the user can't see it, then it shouldn't be used for ranking). Also, most screen readers and text-only browsers don't read/display
- See Google's Guidelines link, the way this reads it may be best not to use display:none
- They are just trying to say don't hide stuff for the sake of hiding it or doing bad things. There are way too many legitimate uses for display:none for it to be considered a bad thing in and of itself.
