    Question <h1> and SEO question

    Hi everyone,

    First off I apologise for such a n00b question however based on my limited SEO understanding, <h1> tags play an important role with SEO however for the design side of my content I am looking to use the following in my <h1> tags:

    HTML Code:
    <h1>Title Here | <span>Sub Title</span></h1>
    The reason I am using the <span> tag is so it can have a different color though I am concerned that wrapping part of it in a span tag may detract from SEO benefits of the <h1> tag.

    Could someone please confirm if this is a suitable use of the <span> tag within a <h1> tag in terms of SEO issues?

    Thank you in advance for any support you can offer.

    According to this thread, you should be fine:

    I don't think you can ever know for sure though, but since you're not splitting up the words themselves, it shouldn't be a big problem.

    I love Dropbox. Get it through my girlfriend's referral link (I reached my limit) and both you and her get 500 MB extra! Thanks and you're welcome!
