    Welcome to SitePoint Forums!

    Why shouldn't they? Divs are normal, valid HTML elements. Spiders won't assign any particular meaning to divs, since they are semantically neutral elements. They'll just index the text content.

    As Tommy said, they'll pick up the text inside the DIVs. For more information on how search engines work and how to optimize your sites for them, please read the Search Engine Optimization (SEO) FAQ located at the top of the SEO board here on the forums.
