Hi everyone:)

I have a question regarding useing the <h1> tag for seo emphases in keywords. I was hoping you could answer.

Well, i was told the <h1> tag by itself would be seen by robots and that a <h1> tag
*with css might not be seen* on the page because the robots see the "class call" and possibly not the <h1> tag.

So, my question is, would using *inline styles* work for emphasis on a keyword?

Will the <h1> tag be seen by the robots this way?


<h1 style="font-weight: bold; color: #FFFFFF;">abc</h1>

or would the robots see the "style" in the above example?

*I'd like to use it for SEO purposes and because this way i could control the color, font-family, etc. but if it's not seen maybe it would be better to just use the <h1> tag by itself. Of course then the color can't be controlled.(except with inline styles.)

Thank you for your help:)
I appreciate your help.

The spiders will see the <h1>. That's the tag.

The 'style' is the attribute which they'll look at to get a judge for the size of your text or whether you're using white-on-white, etc.
