    Hello Friends,

    In the source code of the website, there are various comment section, which are not visible on the webpage. Does Google considers the content in the comment section?

    Will the content of the comment section help's to rank a website?

    The "Comments" in the source code are there as a guide to the coder, to tell them what a section of code is or does. They are not meant to be seen by Google or any other search engine, nor are they intended to "hide" code that is inserted for marketing purposes, so that the search engines cannot tell what the code is doing. The search engines cannot "see" the comments, so they have no effect on rankings.
