Hi All!

I recently read in a magazine article, and then found the same information in online articles the following:


Aside from PageRank and the use of anchor text, Google has several other features. First, it has location information for all hits and so it makes extensive use of proximity in search. Second, Google keeps track of some visual presentation details such as font size of words. Words in a larger or bolder font are weighted higher than other words. Third, full raw HTML of pages is available in a repository.


really??  I read this is a current print magazine, the online article I found was older.  I wonder if they are talking about the font tag?  I'm trying to use more CSS.  font size used with css also taken into account??
