Forum › White Hat SEO › Does CSS impact SEO – is a Search Engine’s web crawler CSS agnostic?
Suppose I have a standard landing page with a clear value proposition, visual, CTA, & social proof.
Now consider the following three scenarios for how I can host this landing page:
1. without any styling (just HTML)
2. with styling (external CSS files)
3. with styling but UX-unfriendly. For example, elements overlap or do not fit inside the viewport.
In all these three scenarios the content and HTML are exactly the same, so would the landing page score the same points regardless of which of the scenario?
Putting UX aside, does “good” CSS add any value to a landing page’s SEO?
The landing page score may differ depending on load speed and UX.
I believe google has said multiple times that they don’t care what you built your site on, just as long is the content performs well and is valuable.
