    Setting H1 in Css


    Hello,

    I have a doubt:
    Is it a good thing setting the H1 tag properties (character, size, color, ect) in the style css tag in the code of the same page?

    Could that cause any problem with Search Engines?

    Thanks.

    An external CSS file will keep your on-page HTML even cleaner- so I would go that route. The cleaner the better when it comes to your site being spidered.

    No it wouldn't cause any problems with search engines although I would definitely recommend an external css file where ever possible to get the full benefits of css coding.

    It may become a problem if you try to make your H1 tags look EXACTLY like regular text and have a dozen or so of them on your page. Worse still: there are pages that have ALL their content in one big H1 tag. Great effort, but it doesn't work Well it probably does, but not in a good way - hehe.

    I have a dumb question - where would you place an 'external' CSS file? Is it external relative to that page - ie just another file under the same URL?

    Just make up a folder in your web space (named anything you want) and place the .css file there. You will then link to the file in your HTML pages.

    You can get the specifics in the CSS Forum and the HTML Forum

    I suppose I should venture outside the friendly confines of SEOchat once in awhile... Sorry for the dumb Q, and thanks for taking the time to answer.
