Display: None

May 23, 2007

Hi Jill,


I have to create some pages for a client. They are full of images and little
to no content and have no title tags…however, they still want SEO


Can I still put in H1s and H2s with appropriate keyword content and choose
“display: none” so they are in the code but not on the page? Is this a big

Hi Laura,


You can do anything you want, but yes, that’s a big no-no.

Rather than using display:none, why not control the tags in your css so that they simply aren’t so large? For example:


h2 {

font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
font-size: 11px;
font-style: italic;
font-weight: bold;
color: #000000;


It’s still an h2 tag, although altered in the style sheet, correct?
