Reply with quote

I am recently revamping my site to fully optimize and came across something that I thought rather interesting. I am aware of the black hat techniques that users may use to hide the same color text as the background however what if your using lets say white text on a background image and your background behind the image is also set to white? How do search engines know what color background image you are using?... or is it a good idea to stick with a text thats not the same color as the background in general even though the background image is a different color? Thoughts?

This is an old trick that can very easily get you de-listed by google.

It's not just Google you have to worry about. It's your competitors, too. They can click on "View source", examine your HTML, see your sneaky tricks and report you to Google.

Google invites such reports.

Such risks are not worth taking, I reckon.
