Is This A H1 Style No-No?


Best Answer qwerty , 05 March 2013 - 07:39 PM

Yeah, bad. Any text that's hidden and can't be made visible by some user action is pure spam. Sticking it in a heading tag probably just means that they're a little more confused.

 

I recently came across some pages where paragraphs are nested in <h1> tags that are given a special class name that the CSS formats to look like normal text. Bad idea, right? These people actually thought that putting pretty much the whole page in headings would make it rank better. And what's the name of that CSS class that reformats the text? "SEO" :)

This is a first for me...I'm auditing a site that has keywords hidden in an H1 tag so they don't appear on the page.

 

<h1 style="display:none;">huge bunch of keywords listed here</h1>

 

Bad right?

 

Thanks,

Caro

Thanks qwerty, I figured as much. I had never encountered this particular trick before.
