curious, but my post didn’t show up in the list for whatever reason so I thought it is lost. Freewaytalk is so lame these days, error messages, not reachable so I am not sure what’s going on here. I repost it now once again:
Some hair in soup and even unsure if my statement is correct:
You are using MyriadPro as “graphic text” so you have MyriadPro installed on your computer - correct? Have you or your client ever purchased a license (I suppose cause it is shipped with any Adobe Software)? But do you have then automatically the legal right to use it in web even as graphics?
Well - probably yes.
What I really want to say is:
If a client wants to have a special FONT, I tell my clients:
Purchase a weblicense (.ttf,.otf + .eot) of the desired FONT or have a look at https://typekit.com/fonts/myriad-pro and see the pricing (eg. 2$/month) and tell me if it is worth.
If yes - cooooool, if no:
Let’s have a look at google webfonts if we find an alternative (and Lucida is a great alternative without google webfonts).
Dealing with “graphic text stuff” is so outdated and I refuse to work with it these days.
Yes - go to my competitors, I’m pretty sure they do.
Julie - the entire text is set as graphic. Is one single FONT that important to knock down SEO? It is a media company and they should know what they do and if not I expect from you (all) to tell them.
It’s just to avoid another list in here in a couple of weeks with the title:
“Help - Google is ranking my site on page 12 - what can I do?”
I’m always tend to be on the “dangerous side of life” and did therefore a quick test :-). It looks like Myriad or? http://kimmich-dm.de/screenerstuff/index.html
