    Does Google index content that has font-size 11px


    Guys I have added some content at the bottom of my home page and it has font-size: 11px; I have noticed Google didn't pick it up!

    Do you think Google doesn't like such a small font. Whats is the minimum font?

    Seriously...

    Surely people can read 11px text?

    Have you considered the possibility that Google is ignoring the entire 'footer'?

    I came across post was saying that Google doesn't like small and too big fonts. Why do you think Goggle will ignore so much content right the on my home page?

    I'm curious though, how do you know Google isn't picking up your footer?

    I don't think Google cares what font size is. The only thing I thought Google looked for was weighting the header (<h1>, <h2> etc).

    Thanks guys very much! When I check my website's rankings looks like only text that I have under the header is used nothing else. But I trust you will experiment for a month or so with 13px then put it back to 11px which looks better

    Google always says, think about your visitors and try to make web page user friendly but we always think about Google. I think, font-size is not issue for Google's crawler.

    Font size can change something, i think, but not by the straight way. It can make the page less comfortable for user, user can leave the page. Don`t forget about usability.

    If the page is in the SERPs you can check the cache. If the page isn't you can use Fetch as Googlebot in GWT.

    Google ignores large the right bar of one of my sites because it loads dynamically using JQuery.

    Google has now indexed by demo so you can see it in action:

    Look at this page: Demo - the good and evil page

    Now put the URL in google and look at the cache .... spot the difference .... !
