The H1 Design Dilemma with SEO

github logo ・1 min read

I have rarely designed homepages with clear "titles" in the design. It's usually a navigation, a banner, then some intro content. So I came up with an idea to overcome this problem. Create an H1 that has no height or width and is absolutely positioned.

I haven't figured out if this will effect SEO but I think it raises a valid point that SEO shouldn't be more important than the user experience because that would stifle innovation and creativity. So what if we changed the standard? I'm not sure where to make that a reality. I imagine it has to do with submitting something to the w3c but I figured I'd start here.
