In an effort to position content first, there has been a response by some designers to either start placing the navigation bars on the right (instead of the traditional leftside) OR to structure css so that the content at least appears to be coded first on the page, with which I think most of us are familiar.
Noticing over the recent months however that a few of the sites I've been following with the serps that do place content first have taken a dip in their rankings (in particular, spoofing G into thinking content was first, at least). Though this observation comes from a small pool of sites.
Has anyone else noticed this?
I'm tempted on a site I'm developing right now to just put the nav bar on the left and leave it at that, to counter any real risk involved (though I'm also not "code spoofing").
