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.

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"...

My MP4 h.264 Files Won’t Load Immediately!

MP4 (h.264) videos are the hottest and one of the most robust video file formats being used today.

Unfortunately, within the MP4 h.264 file is Quicktime Indexing information, and if it is in the wrong spot, you may have some streaming problems. The fix is simple, though. Read on…

Is Google Indexing YouTube Closed Captions?

A few days ago, I posted a video about adding closed captions to your YouTube video. I also made the claim that this will help with SEO. It made sense and I read a few blogs that implied this, too, but I was not convinced. So I did a test…

“track format is unknown” - YouTube Error Troubleshoot

Adding closed captioning and subtitles to your YouTube videos is a great way to add contextual content that can be indexed to your videos. The toughest part is getting the video transcription in the correct Subviewer (.sub) format. YouTube will be the first to tell you if the formating is not correct!

“unable to save closed caption track” - YouTube Error Troubleshoot

If you get the error message: “unable to save closed caption track” while uploading a closed caption video transcription to your YouTube video, you are probably uploading things a bit too fast.

Captioning and Subtitling on YouTube for SEO

I’ve been waiting for this for some time now! My biggest complaint about video is that the content within video is not spiderable (if that is even a word?). Still, I continued to make videos and I focused what little SEO power that I had on the videos (titles, descriptions, tags). Let me introduce you to YouTube Closed Captioning and true SEO Video bliss!
