Having a professional looking website or blog is extremely important. At the same time, you want to make sure your content is appealing and easy to read.
Are you looking for some great Google fonts to try? I found some great ones worth looking at. But if you need some premium tools, you should watch this video on deal sites for web designers.
With this in mind, not all website content and fonts are the same. Read on to learn more about the best fonts to choose when creating your site.
How can you use these Google Fonts on your website?
If you use WordPress, you probably won’t have any problem since most of the templates integrate Google Fonts for use in H1, H2, p, etc. However, it is possible that aluna has not been included. In that case you could use the “@font-face” method to use other Google Fonts. Basically you have to upload the fonts in different formats to your server, and then place a CSS code in your style sheet.
Another method is to use “@import”. In this case, instead of uploading the Google Fonts to your server, you call them from Google. This is very easy as Google Fonts gives you the direct solution. Just click on @import to find the necessary CSS. You have to put it without the ‘style’ code that appears at the beginning and at the end.
Here are some of the most popular fonts to consider when choosing one for your site.
Designed by Christian Robertson, it is a free serif-slab font from Google Fonts. It was created to be used in combination with its sans-serif mode, and contains 4 different weights, but does not include italics. This is also one of the most liked fonts across the main social media platforms as well.
