Calling all blogger template code experts - help.

Hello. I need a little help with my blog template. I'm quite happy with the way it looks, but the centre column loads after the sidebars. This means that the googlebot is reading my sidebar first so that my blog posts are not being indexed by google under their post titles. Does anyone know how I can alter my code to make the centre column load first?

The best way [and only way I know] to do it would be to have your posts in the left-hand column.

How much do you know about CSS (cascading style sheets)? The way to do it is to "float" the columns, which will allow you to move the content up the page and the sidebars to load afterwards. If you were to email me your template I could have a look for you, or if you feel like having a go yourself I can "talk" you through it probably.
