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"...

2013 is bringing the biggest changes I have ever made to my websites since I started back in 2006. With it, major theme changes of the content of this website will beginning starting the next post. Find out what is going on!

Hey all -  In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve been neglecting my blog over the past few months.  Frankly, it was a combination of spinning plates to keep my online businesses alive, being a dad and a husband, going to work (yes, I do work a 9-to-5 job) and re-building.

Let me explain.

Last year was a tough year for me and the search engines.  TheWebReviewer.com took some major Penguin and Panda abuse and a few of my other niches took a bit of a dive as well.  No one ever said that internet marketing was not going to have its ups-and-downs.

Income dropped significantly, I had to unfortunately stop using my excellent content writers and SEO service and really needed to re-think how I am going to re-create what took 6 years to grow.

So here I am.

First, I have been re-building TheWebReviewer.  I rebuilt the site into a Wordpress plug-in and have started to renovate the content.  Second, I’m out of the “make money online” niche.  Google hates it…and so do I.  This is not 2006 any more and either the paid stuff is useless and misleading or the good stuff is available for anyone to see.

Sure, I’ll still share my experiences and pitfalls of my 7 year (and going!) online marketing career, but I have no intention of trying to review or market the “next great money making idea”.  Instead, I’m going to focus on real products with real uses to you.  No more education stuff…if you want that, you can check out my TruGuru stuff at TheWebReviewer.  It’s now all free and it will give you a great idea of what people are actually trying to sell you out there.

I want to focus on the tools and products online that grew my businesses.  Sure, you can start a business with a simple free blog and affiliate links, but boy that is tough these days!  You really want your own website (which requires hosting), with a user friendly interface (something like Wordpress), probably an autoresponder (to capture user interest), a place to find products to sell or market (like a wholesaler or dropship directory), maybe a place for someone to make a purchase (a merchant account and a shopping cart, possibly a customer management system).   These are the tools and I’ve used them all.  I know what works and which ones are easy to use.

So that is my new focus for TheWebReviewer.com.  But here, I am going to change it up a little bit!  My geekness is going to start unfolding.  Over the years, I’ve become rather educated in creating rather intelligent websites.  I’ve become kind of a php, MySQL, HTML, CSS, javascript, Wordpress Theme master of some sorts.  That is what I want to start focusing this blog about.

I want to show you some of the basics…and also some of the tricks I have learned.  Is this going to be for beginners?  Not really.  But it will become a resource to solving some of the more difficult programming aspects of building killer websites for online business.  Join TheWebReviewer.com to keep up with the marketing stuff.  But join here if you want to start learning some of the real “ninja” tactics behind making your common website into a converting beast!

Enough ninja and beast talk for one night.  Next post, get ready for some thinking!
