Not seeing it in the source...already changed?

The hidden words for me are "in deutscher √úbersetzung" (in German translation).

Probably just a mistake (or a dumb rich-text editor).

Looks like a mistake because it is in the middle of the first post, (after the third link) and can still be seen in IE7

Correction:

I am also seeing the example that Haochi saw

They changed their post (without noting the change) but they didn't get rid of all hidden keywords yet :)

Yes, I still see "<span style="font-size:0;">in deutscher √úbersetzung </span>"

That's a hell of a bad start, especially in Germany.

RELEVANT Hidden text is perfectly fine! Iit is just another form of

* * META KEYWORDS * *

Think about It.

Heh. Sorry about that. We copied the post over from another text editor once we'd written it and it looks like the HTML got funky. I've been working on cleaning it up.

> Told ya.

I just realized it might not have been clear to those not speaking German: these were clearly not "hidden keywords". The whole text was messed up and so the sentences were cut inbetween, with missing words, and were not readable at all. For example, the first line read something like (translated): "Welcome to the premiere of the German-language blog the Google!" So the grammar was messed up because it was really supposed to read "Welcome to the premiere of the German-language blog of the Google Webmaster Central!". Without that understanding, I suppose the irony of my post was too easily missed. Added an update to the post.
