    Question hidden text wrap in DIV text for Google


    Is there a website that checks text wrap in DIV in DIV for Google and other search engines is invisible or hidden!! ?
    I came across that fact that some times it happens and you do not know it! Your rank can suffer from it!
    Is there a way to check that ?
    Thank you

    You can always look at the source code (Cltrl+U).

    Yep, check the source code... And you could try W3 Validator.

    The W3 is working and it shows some errors like Consider using the h1 element as a top-level heading only (all h1 elements are treated as top-level headings by many screen readers and other tools).
    or
    The font element is obsolete. Use CSS instead.
    -- So how importent this is? Is it just importent for Ranking only??

    There are so many ways to hide a content (HTML tag, CSS, jQuery). So it is highly impossible to identify a hidden div element. The better way is to use Ctrl+U to see the source code and check manually each and every line of the page.

    Just like @smuralii said, you need to look at the source code and the web page and go line by line to make sure it's okay.

    For the third time. You look at the source code and then look at the site online. Make sure the text in the source code are visible online.

    As an example, if you look at your source code an see this:
    Code:
    <div class=".example-text">
        <p>This is some text here and I'm trying to hide it by using CSS.</p>
    </div>
    You look at your page online. If you don't see "This is some text here and I'm trying to hide it by using CSS.", you have hidden text.
