Question Do search engines see CSS generated content?

There is a wp theme menu structure:
HTML Code:
<div> <span navfxtext="Home"> </span> <a href="#"> Home </a> </div>
To animate the buttons we need an additional layer <span> with the same text inside (“Home”).
To avoid duplicates of keywords in the menu the tag <span> is left blank, and the text is stored in the parameter navfxtext from which it is inserted into the pseudo element :before using CSS
HTML Code:
span: before { content: attr (navfxtext); }
The question is: Do search engines see CSS generated content? Would it be a rendered text in the pseudo element by Google engine and considered as double: Home Home, Service pages Service pages, Contact us Contact us?
Is the theme considered as seo ready then?

Not sure. But its well known that we cannot use text for SEO in webpage and hide them use CSS. So may be they consider CSS too.

There is no official documentation on this issue, but I would not expect it to matter to the search engines much one way or the other. The only issue is whether or not the 'content' is visible to users. As long as you're providing a mechanism for the user to see the generated content, it's within their guidelines. And since both Google and Bing have moved beyond metrics like keyword density, it's not likely to affect your rankings significantly even if they do consider it to be a part of your page content.

I think yes. Because minimizing CSS is the part of SEO. Which means you need to minimize CSS for search engines. So that means Search engines can see the CSS generated content.

Don’t create your own attributes, you must use HTML5 data.

Yes i can agree that google crawls css files, for example let's take v7n css file:

PHP Code:
v7n.com/forums/clientscript/vbulletin_css/style-3a14e0d5-00003.css 
You can disable google crawling your css file in robots.txt file from your server.

If you dont have a robots.txt file, create one with the following code:

PHP Code:

User
-agent: *
Disallow: /your_file.css

Google reads in-line CSS code, not if it is in its own CSS file, I don't believe it does no, but maybe I am wrong. If it does, It won't play a massive factor in your rankings, I believe minifying your CSS code will just result in speeding up your page load speed which is taken into account in Google

They do not care about hidden texts
Create a page for your web site visitors not for search engines
