Hi jagan, read the inside of the text" There is one slight possible dilemma with this. Same-color text is considered by many search engine to be spam, and may result in a penalty for your site.
It would be easy for me to jump on the misinformation bandwagon and say that if you use identical color text, you will get banned. Many optimizing experts are claiming this. I myself cannot prove or disprove this claim. Especially when there are multiple examples of sites using same-color text and still ranking. Using identical color text used to work well and people are still doing it and getting away with it. " This is what it says.
It has warned you for using Hidden Text. Search Engines have always been abused by such dilemma. Its better to use fair means then to be sorry later.
Myself have seen so many sites which were on top but after sometime they were history.
Work it out true and honest way, results will be good. :)

Google would not waste the resources trying to catch same color same BG text as there are so many ways to do it, external CSS for example and then place that css file in a folder that has gbot dissallowed in its robots.txt But the question needs to be asked WHO FREAKIN CARES! IF you want the text placed on your site, there is no need to hide it, just place it there. hiding text or even spamming tons of text thats visible doesnt help your SE positining it hurts it.
They may be doing tons of other things right but spamming text is not one of them.
You dont see me spamming "SEO company SEO company SEO company SEO company v SEO company SEO company SEO company SEO company SEO company SEO company SEO company vSEO company"
All over my site and I rank #1 in Every search engine. That kind of advise just shows that their techniques are outdated, thats all. But yet again I maintain they are likely doing other things right and just dont have the ability to know what is right and what is not
