    Replacing Header Tags with Images
    Bad idea? CSS style header tags to use a fancy bg img and hide the text (display:none) but still using SEO'd header text?
    Viewed as a black hat? Keyword stuffing? Or hidden text not matter?
    Example:
    h1 tag:" Keyword Services and Keyword Products".
    But the CSS hides that text and in its place I have an image with graphics and stylized text that reads something like:
    "Hey, check Out our Stuff"

    I wouldn't do this even if I didn't get punished.

    There are really no "tricks" or short cuts that work in SEO. If you are looking for short cuts you are really heading in the wrong direction.

    Well like Matt Cutts already said, it depends on how you use this. You should be cautious in doing this one because it can either make or break your SERPs and how your competitor, visitors and etc. views you as a company.

    Yes. That really depends on how you will use it. Like for example, doorway pages are considered a technique of spamming or tricking some SERP for users. There are also other types of doorway pages used in several websites, mostly in ecommerce sites that make use doorway pages for a reasonable cause.

    This is really a nice idea but you must have to make title tag better then before one otherwise no effect.
