  • OT: question about websites and search engines

    I want to change to title of my website (containing my name) from a regular used font to a different font which I downloaded from the web, so I figured I make a jpg. file with the title in that font.



    Now my question is: would that make it harder for search engines to find my website since my name is not typed on the site anymore but appears on a jpg instead?

    Do search engines use the actual typed content that appears on a websites index page?



    Thanks,

    Lars

    As long as your name appears in the content it doesn't make any difference for SEO.

        You mean anywhere on the site, regardless of where?

        I have it in tiny letters in the copyright at the bottom of the index page.



        I also have it in the title tag, but that does not appear on the site itself, only on the browser tab.

        Would that work the same, too?

                As long as you have your name and details in the meta tags/description, you'll be fine

                    Thanks!



                    So, to be sure: search engines don't use any of the actual displayed content of a website but only the meta-tags or title tags?

                            I meant do search engines use any of the actual 'written' content that is displayed on a website or only meta tags/title tags.
