The next step is to incorporate your cascading style sheet so you can still use a header designed using graphics, while placing your important keyword phrase(s) at the top of your web page which search engines love. In your style sheet, add these two styles: #header{ width: 373px; height: 53px; background-image: url(header.gif); background-repeat: no-repeat; color: f7f7f7; } h1{ text-indent: -100em; margin:0px,0px,0px,0px; }

...and if it is, it isn't particularly good advice. A lot of search engines will blacklist you if they realise you're trying to trick their spider with ideas like this.

Rather than trying to trick them, a header should be designed properly so that keywords in the header area are either actual text, or if you need a fancier font are put in place with SIFR or a similar technique which degrades nicely for both automated spiders used by search engines as well as users without the relevant plugins.


A properly designed page with good content will outrank one which uses silly SEO techniques such as the one presented by Ruseell21 every time.

I second the fact that a semantically correct content page will do more good than keyword spamming. Search engines are now developed by intelligent people. Amazing eh?

Also:


#header{
width: 373px;
height: 53px;
background: url(header.gif) no-repeat;
color: #f7f7f7;
}
h1{
text-indent: -100em;
margin: 0;
}


Fixed [grin]
