Absolute Positioning - giving your content a lift up

The higher your content is on a given page the more it counts for Google. Google does not see a page like a human being, Googlebot crawls the code. Thus the higher your content is in the code the better. So if you have a complex site with lots of menus, scripts and other gimmicks you should consider absolute positioning, otherwise Google might even stop crawling your page before it reaches the main content. You can place the actual content high up in the code, at the top, while the users will see it in the middle of the page below the menus.
