    Yes. It's not optimal and I try to avoid it if I can, but you can have an image with the alt tag set.

      I'm not sure about any anchors, but the trick with negative text-indent is actually pretty common. For example WordPress theme vendor StudioPress uses it. In theory Google might not like texts that are placed outside viewport, but I've not seen this hurt a site.

    Yes, but why would you want to do that. It's a waste of your H1 tag. Google uses it to determine what your web page is about so you need to include a keyword you are trying to rank for there.

      You're right, but I guess we can include keywords inside the alt text. right?

  • Agree with Savyeman here. Design should be in service of function and not vice versa.

    Hi,

    Could you perhaps explain to me why you would want to wrap your image with an <h1> tag? There's no since in doing something like this, unless you're just playing around.

      Basically my purposed on doing the image as H1 tag is to eliminate H1 tag as a text, that's why we did an image as H1 tag, but I believe that the alt text will stand as an H1.

    I'd say it's legal html, but the search engines might properly think you are trying to game the system by not using the H1 place emphasis on text. The purpose of the alt text is to furnish information to screen readers.

    Just build your pages/site the right way, don't try to fool the search engines, they are smarter than you (and me)

      You're right, but by doing this I'am actually checking the side of users experience.. because I guess it is much clean to see if you're website is properly layout.

        I can probably put a mercedes engine in a smartfor2.....but why?

        Makes no sense. Just because one can do something...

        <h1> was for text. Period. It's a size thing. So just because you can put
        an image inside that tag, as well as countless others, why would you?

        And alt text? Many you people should have been around in 1997...the
        al tag was for blind people...to envision the images....not keyword stuffing.

        If you think google is going to even care about alt text, much less in an
        image in an h1 tag, man you people have got serious problems.

    Good grief, just wrap the image in an <h1> tag & be done with it.

    As long as the image has alt-text it will be the <h1> text. If you need proof use a text only browser or wait for the page to be cached & check the text version. It's not a big deal & there's nothing wrong with doing it.

    There's nothing wrong with wrapping an image alt-text in an <h1> tag, even If it's just a logo image with a brand name alt-text.

    Hi,

    H1 Tag is a Heading Tag. Alt Tag Contain Image Tag, no H1 Tag.
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[9291072].message }}
  • Profile picture of the author blindapeseo
    Although it can be done, I honestly would not waste the precious H1 on the logo or company name.

    Use it on every page for the content of the page itself.
    And yes - use text, not an image.

    In Magento your logo forms the standard H1-tag. It's one of their SEO mistakes, however if you optimize the alt-tag it still works as good as an text H1.

    I think using image in H1 tag is not a recommended one, so your targeted long tail keywords

    Ya you can do but better to use H1 tag on keyword rich sentence. Alt tag is good enough for image optimization.
