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"...

Cash Flow and Affiliate Marketing

Having no formal education in marketing or accounting, the term “Cash Flow” never meant much to me…until recently. My understanding of cash flow (now) is how and WHEN cash is flowing into and out of your saving account. In the past, it was simple! I received a steady check from my employer. [...]

Creating an XML Sitemap for Google

In my last post, I wrote about the importance of using Google Sitemaps to measure the effectiveness of your SEO efforts. I kind of simply stated: “Just create your XML site map, up-load it to your server, and you are ready to go!” Well, some of you wrote me and said “huh?” [...]

Are You Using Google Sitemaps to Test SEO Effectiveness?

I talk a lot about SEO (Search Engine Optimization) with respect to earning top placements in the SERPs (Search Engine Results Pages). Basically, you optimize your website and external links in such a way for the search engine spiders to pay attention to specific keywords that you would like related to your site. [...]

NexGen Affiliate Marketing and Learning: FreeIQ

Google Bomb Ignited Again!

A couple of months ago, I talked about the Google Bomb.  Just a reminder, the Google Bomb was set off by a lot of SEO experts to get the term “miserable failure” to point to President Bush’s home page whenever it appeared in the Google Search Engine Results Page (SERP).  They did this by creating [...]
