Changing the Font & Style of Your H1 Tags

QUESTION: (Rhonda) I am having problems changing the font size of my H1text. Is this very important? If so, how do I go about changing it?

Changing the text and/or style of an H1 tag is simple in CSS.  It does not affect anything other than how the visitor sees it though (i.e., if you use a large font, it means nothing more than a smaller font, in SEO terms or how Google sees it).

You can change the H1 tag locally or in the CSS definition file.

If you want to change all of the H1 tag settings in your entire website, you would do this in the CSS file:

h1 {
font-size: 24px;
}

You would use the h1 tag as you normally would:
<h1>This is my H1 tag</h1>

You can define a class in the CSS file which allows you to define your new style whenever you wish anywhere on the site:

.h1style {
font-size: 24px;
}

You would add this class to your h1 tag, when you wish it:

<h1 class=”h1style”>This is my H1 Tag</h1>

* Remember to add the “.” when defining it in the CSS to classify it as a class.

Finally, you can do it locally using a style attribute (without the CSS file):

<h1 style=”font-size:24px;”>This is my H1 Tag</h1>

All of the above do the exact same thing.  Their use is based on how often you use the style and how you want it defined (whether globally or locally).

Also, remember you can add other styles to the same definition (like color):

<h1 style=”font-size:24px; color:red;”>This is my H1 Tag that is Red and 24px high</h1>

I find that being able to change the styles of my text for header and other standard tags to be quite invaluable!  Knowing a little bit of CSS can go a long way.  Give this a try!

The easiest thing to try first is the local definition using the style attribute. If this is working for you, consider creating or editing your own CSS file!

Good luck!  cheers…matt

Who is Behind Marketing Mind?

Matthew Bredel begin_of_the_skype_highlighting     end_of_the_skype_highlightingMy name is Matthew Bredel and as of March, 2007, I am a full-time, work-at-home internet marketer. For close to 10 years, I worked for a defense company which was an OK job, but I was so uninspired in life and frankly, I needed some more money. That is when I first discovered internet marketing! Now I admit that I didn't start making thousands in my first couple of months (in fact, I lost my shirt!), but I finally saw the "internet light"...

I have spent perhaps 100 hours over the last 3 months on the issue of synchronizing my video from my camcorder with the audio from a USB microphone. The best I was ever able to do was to get the sound and video to match up when I solely produced it as a flash file. This is not a great solution and it really limited me on my editing capabilities as well as my video distribution efforts. Probing around the internet forums, I was not the only person with this problem and the only resolution appeared to be to buy a camera with an external microphone input (which meant I needed to buy an XLR to mini-jack converter). This just meant MONEY MONEY MONEY!I don’t know what I did not go to him earlier, but Mike Stewart (the InternetAudioGuy and InternetVideoGuy) gave me the solution: Video Capture Wizard. The tool is fairly basic (and easy to use), but it is designed to take the video from the Firewire of a Camcorder and combine it with the audio of a USB microphone (like the LightSnake adapter that I currently use). I tried it and it WORKED! After 20 different set-ups and 10 different capture software packages (including Sony, Adobe, Windows Movie Maker and a dozen shareware capture tools), I achieved success (and it only cost me 39 bucks at the end).

Thanks Mike for the great advice and tool!
