CSS vs Tables

CSS vs Tables

By John Jantsch

Here’s what I want to discuss today!

Does CSS allow you to rank higher in search engines and, if
so, is it worth the learning curve?I’m hoping some of my readers
will weigh in on this one with some really technical comments!

CSS or cascading style sheets seem to make sense from a search

you are doing you can even have complicated left side columns with
all kinds of confusing links, but start your HTML off with your main
search friendly content. So, without even getting into all of the merits

I know that asking SEO folks and website design folks to give
opinions is dangerous, but maybe even a debate is in order.
