Type fonts vs. SEOs


Recommended Posts

A few years back I did a website and in my innocence used "LongIsland" as my preferred type font for my <h1> tags, followed by "Times New Roman" and sans-serif.


Recently my client called me and said his web traffic had seemed to drop off.


Could this have any bearing on anything?


(I will refer him to Kyle's recent topic re: Google ratings.)


Thanks! Alfie

The font has absolutely nothing to do with search engines - they read your code, not what we see. People who don't have longisland (which is probably all but you) will just see Times New Roman and never even know what you wanted them to see. And while TNR is a bit boring, it's certainly a perfectly good font and wouldn't keep folks from showing up.

Kind'a thought that would be the of answer, but I was not sure.

Many thanks for answering and confirming!


LSW's recent GOOGLE links were very informative!

Is this search traffic from a specific search engine? Sometimes search engines make algorithm changes that change rankings -- Google just recently (in the last day or two) made some changes that may be affecting people.
