Along with the important information about author bios that I wrote about in my last post, Karyna Mcglynn also talked about the importance of fonts. Tasha does this to in her post Pretty Little Fonts. I guess this is a part of SEO that people don’t really talk about. Or perhaps, since it is so image driven it belongs in Web Design and not in SEO.
