Are there SEO disadvantages to hiding text on mobile? More specifically I want to hide the category

Are there SEO disadvantages to hiding text on mobile? More specifically I want to hide the category descriptions on a woocommerce store on mobile, to aid in product visibility on smaller screens. Will this affect SEO or crawling in any way? (this description is also used as seo meta description by RM)

  1. Hello, Thank you so much for getting in touch.

    The recommendation from Google is that you don’t hide content from your page to the users, so we also recommend that you follow said guidelines on your website to prevent any potential penalties.

    Hope that helps and please do not hesitate to let us know if you need our assistance with anything else.

  2. If it – whatever it is – matters on desktop to real customers then it’s hard to imagine it not mattering on mobile. SEO is nothing more than a codified proxy for interpreting the wants and needs of real humans.

    A healthier way to look at it is…does X improve the user experience or not.
