Headline Banners


In some of the themes you will see a HTML code kinda like this one (from the "Tech Blue Theme:"

<!-- SAMPLE BOARD LOCATION - CHANGE URL TO YOUR BOARDS LOCATION -->
<div id="community">
<a href="[sign in to see URL]">
<!-- SAMPLE BANNER -->
<img src="[sign in to see URL]" alt="" /></a>
</div>


This code is perfectly fine but what if you want to help your chances in the search engines like Bing or perhaps Google?

Re: Headline Banners


One trick is to place your banner graphic inside of a h1 tage in your HTML so the search engine sees it as a major headline (ie: the h1 tag).

This would give you HTML coding similar to this:

<!-- LOGO & TITLE SECTION //-->
<h1>
  <a href="[sign in to see URL]">
    <img src="[sign in to see URL]" title="my board name" alt="my board name" />
  </a>
</h1>


The href is your boards url
The img src is the url to your boards banner/logo
title and alt are your boards actual name.

Now you should have a simple line of code in your CSS to display you new "headline/community logo" with the proper justification like so:

h1 {
    text-align: center;
}


The code shown above centers your "headline" graphic with the message board but you could also use "left" or "right" if you prefer.

Re: Headline Banners


That's it, it does not guarantee a better placement in the search engines but it does help "load the dice" in your favor. emoticon
