Positiong in View Source & Display to user

5
Question about positioning in view source. What I am trying to accomplish is this:

1. I have content that is revelant to the my site that is currently being displayed to the user at the bottom of the page using css and html.

2. When I view source this content and div tags are at the bottom of the page. What I am wanting to do is have the content in the view source to actually load first on the page elow the body tag. Is there a way to change it to show up like this in the view source

View Source only shows what your server sends in the order it is received. Only you can change that at this source.

If you think doing so helps improve SEO, you are mistaken and this is wasted effort.

Thanks for the prompt reply. The SEO company that is writing the content for my site says that this is a good idea since my navigation is so large which is being loaded first that if I could get it to send first this would be better but I was wanting to display it at the bottom of the page.

Is it graphics? I just don't trust seo's.

You can position anything anywhere on the screen using CSS, but we'd need to see the link or the complete markup to help. Even then, if it's that big, it just might take too much effort on our part.

the link to the site is as follows

http://www.eyeglasses123.com/127/DG-Sunglasses/index1.html as you can see on page that the seo content is at the bottom of the page which is where I want it to display.


But when you view the source this content also loads at the bottom of the page wanting it to still display at the bottom but load right below the body tag

One of the biggest things that will get your site downgraded by a search engine is when their bot is unable to find its way through your page due to invalid markup. This is a fundamental of SEO. You have 393 html errors on the first page. Believe it or not, not the worst I've ever seen but close.

Fire this SEO guy and see if you can get your money back.
