    CSS layers for SEO

    Hello there,

    I would like to know do you use CSS layers for SEO most of the time? It seems to have an advantage to bring content right at top of <body> section.
    Thanks,
    John

    having content at the top isn't as great a bonus as you may think. The quality of the content is of far greater important than the position of it.

    Thanks aspen.
    So, it could have a little bonus. I read in an article that the first 50k of web page is most important for seo. I think if image comes first, then SE will take into account its kilobytes, is is correct? Plus, does the size of a page matter?

    Most search engines don't download images, so no.

    Size does matter, search engines can stop reading after a certain length, usually around 100kb.

    Its rare for a page to be so large though (this doesn't count images, just the size of your html files). So really this isn't an issue for most people.
