I've designed the home page of our site so that the main text blocks
are displayed in different positions and at different times, each time
you enter or refresh the page.
To see what I mean got to www.WhereCanWeGo.com look at the right-hand
side and click refresh a few times.
I liked the idea, but now I worry that this may have a negative effect
on Google ratings, as most of the key words are in the rotating text
boxes, and will differ each time it is seen.
Does anyone know if this is true? Would static text blocks help?
Re: Rotating Home Page Text
The majority of the page (the 'meat') is static, so I wouldn't worry about
it. PHP-Nuke, which is a CMS that was downloaded around 5.6 million times,
is doing that by default, i.e. 'out of the box'. It does so to fit contex-
tually-related articles to the right-hand-side pane.
