This might be a silly question… I’m thinking of designing a header image that will include my blog’s name, so I want to remove the blog title text. Will this affect SEO optimisation? I’m thinking the blog title might be a header of some sort, and might have some code behind it to help search engines locate it. Will I mess this up by removing the text?
If you remove the Site title from this page > Settings > General then that’s where search spiders expect to find it. If it’s not there you may have trouble getting your content indexed. The solution is to use or move to using a theme that has this option to suppress header text display:
Appearance > Header
__ Show header text with your image.
There are many themes that let you display a graphic header and not display the header text. The Page Title is retained. Chateau is one of those themes. Look under Appearance>Header>Header Text>Show header text with your image
