Is Justify Post Good For SEO? SEO is a complex thing that we need to understand. Technically, when your article ranks on the first page of the search engines, your SEO is successful. That it what we need to understand. But, to make it, it is not simple as its word.
When I read about SEO, there are many rules you need to follow. Is it true? I will write it on the next topic to a more specific discussion about this. Stay tuned!
Today, I want to discuss about Justify Post. Is it give an impact on your SEO?
Since WordPress 4.7 version was released, there is no longer have a function for it in the post editor in WordPress. To do so, it was just available on keyboard shortcut (shift+alt+j).
Why does WordPress hide this function in post editor?
The reason is, it is not important and not necessary for quality writing.
When I try to make research about it, I found this answer and I have agreed with what he said 100%.
Google essentially analyzes source code and not screen appearance. There is a small part of the algorithm that does simulate the screen appearance of a page – done so that the content area and its links get the most important, and things like footer links are given less pop. Screen simulation is also part of Google’s check for possible spam factors, such as hidden text.
So the answer is essentially no. Text justification is not a ranking factor.
Now if the page layout gives the visitor a bad time, then that dissatisfaction make create a domino effect: fewer natural links, no social media attention, things like that. So indirectly, the way text is justified may affect ranking, but that’s IN-directly.
You want to make sure that the page is highly readable. Justified text on screen tends to be harder to read, because a browser does not currently have elaborate kerning functions the way that printed documents do.
So, what about my points?
Undeniably, justify post will look your writing more neat and clean but it is just not good for SEO. Here, I will explain why it is not a good practice for SEO.
How to Explain your Content to Google
When Google reads our site, Google looks at it a little differently than we see the site in a browser. Google doesn’t care about fancy design, fonts, colors, animation, and images. When Google reads your site, all it sees is the content and the HTML that goes around the text.
For example and more clarify, here I provide you a website and how Google sees it.
