    Hi all

    I just wondered if accordion effects using jquery, on basic blocks of content, are bad for SEO?

    (I know i should minimise javascript use however, the client wants this - i wont do it though if it is awful for SEO, however i think maybe it isnt that bad, because all the content is there in the code of the page still readable by search engine spiders right?)

    An example of an accordion is here so you know what i mean:

    Would be grateful for an answer to this

    Thanks,
    Emma

    perfectly fine for seo. tip: disable javascript and look at your page...This is what a search engine crawler (they dont have javascript) with javascript disabled the accordions are fully expanded, google will have no problem reading your content. Put the accordion headings in <h2> to further help with seo, and make the accordion titles keyword related

    looks like theyre already h2s...good stuff. change the accordion header links to href="javascript:void(0);" At the moment clicking on the header link boots me to the top of the page if i have javascript disabled.

    I had never heard this before. Alot of my sites use jquery sliders so I would be very interested if someone had evidence of this being harmful.

    I admit. I am also against the blocking of content.
