I apologize if this is a repeat posting. It's difficult to see if someone already posted info on this because there is so much info.
Anyways, I am launching a website and have a list of keywords at the bottom of the site that are hidden. Is there anyway to expedite the process of Google finding them for their search engine?
What do you mean by "Hidden" keywords? do you mean that the keywords donot show up when anyone open your page in their browser?
I've heard that Google will looks all "hidden texts" on any sites as SPAM trick, that's right?
the-guide is right. Google says in their policies if you try to hide words in your site to get them indexed they frown upon it and might not index you. I don't know if they really can detect that but why take the chance?
Exactly. If you are hiding keywords, stop now or find yourself in the sandbox. It is a dumb idea anyway. Even if it did work, you would start getting a lot of non-relevant traffic and your bounce rate would go through the roof. Is that really what you want?
Just build a good site with good content. Tend to it and watch it grow.
Ironically, I used competely obfusuated text for one of my websites (pastebin.ws) to hide a form (as only spambots would see it and fill it in) and now that's what Bing uses as the description for the site -- "pastebin.ws 2.1 - Home

Agreed, don't use hidden text/links of any kind on your website, that's blackhat techique! Check out Google webmaster forum for more information.
don't use hidden keywords in page content. use keywords in the ethical way..
