    Post Help-a href hide them please

    Hi there.
    I hope someone can help. I have looked everywhere i can think of to find out how I can hide URLs in the bar at the bottom of explorer.
    I thought HTML mouse overs would be best but i haven't used one yet and don't know where i could find out.
    Could someone please help me by telling me if mouseovers are best and if so how best to write them.
    Many Thanks in advance

    Hi angel, welcome to the forums

    A mouseover is what you want to hide your href.
    PHP Code:
    <a href="the actual link" onmouseover="window.status=status bar text;return true;" onmouseout="window.status=' ';return true;">Link</a
    place your actual link in the href

    replace "status bar text" with what you want in the status bar.

    One can also do it by coloring the item the same as the background. Go to the bottom left corner of http://test.livemylife.com to see one example of how I placed the 40+ year old original test and answers thereto imbedded within the .gif file therein in a hidden spot.

    benden, I think Angel was only refering to the status bar.

    You may not be aware, but hiding any text by using the same color as the background, or by using hidden images with links are amongst the biggest no-nos. Google WILL find these, and they will ban sites that use these techniques.

    Benzden, it looks like you may already be penalized judging from your PR3 and 0 inbound links, noting Google does not mess with links in or out for PR3 and lower.

    Make Google happy and watch your traffic increase 10 fold but that is another thread

    Don't worry Dave. I had read about that before. I wouldn't do that. It's called Spaming 'of the worst degree'. : )

    It's not a page meant for 99.99% of computer users anyway. Why does Google penalize people for that kind of stuff?
