    Hey! I want to move my widget sidebar to the left-hand side of the screen in order to help with my SEO (the sidebar contains my About Me, Subscription option, etc). Is there a way to shift the sidebar from right to left?

    The blog I need help with is instrumentofmercy.com.

    Hi Joe, yes, you can move the sidebar to the left. But I don’t think it’s better for SEO. Search engines will prioritize the content that appears first in the HTML (not visually). In this case, the main content appears before the sidebar.

    This is the CSS to move the sidebar to the left:

    .site-content .content-area { order: 3 }
    .site-content .widget-area { margin-left: 0; margin-right: auto }
