Posts Tagged “headers”

It’s common these days to take advantage of CSS Style Sheets to replace your headers like <H1> and <H2> with images. While this makes sites more attractive it also hurts some of your search engine value by losing the keywords that could be used in those important headers.

Well here is how to use images and still get your keywords picked up by the search engines.

<style type=”text/css”>
h1 {
padding-top: 35px; /* height of the replacement image */
height: 0px;
overflow: hidden;
background-repeat: no-repeat;

<h1>Keywords here</h1>

In this example your pretty image will be used but your keywords will still get picked up by the search engines. The nice thing about this approach is that you can actually get some keywords in there that you might not been able if you weren’t using images.
