A web developer with a crush on SEO. Having my skin in the game of website development and digital marketing for more than 10 years already, you might consider me an expert. At least this is what people call me. Honestly, I HATE that term. I prefer to describe myself as a person who takes action and risks. I test every hypothesis, document every step of the process, and implement what works.

    Thanks for the resources. From the link you included it looks as though it’s pretty easy to generate the fonts; will have to play with it more and look through the tutorial links you included.

    The Aller free license does not allow embeding and the commercial license only allows 1,000 visitors per day. Read for yourself below.

    “16 The Licensee may convert the Font Software to EOT format (or other format which Dalton Maag may from time-to-time make it known that it allows under specific terms) for installation on the Licensee’s Website. Website Visitors are included in the Licensed Unit at the equivalence of 1,000 (one thousand) Website Visitors per day being equal to 1 (one) User of the Font Software. For the purpose of Licensed Unit assessment, the Licensee may disregard the Licensee’s Website’s busiest day in a seven-day period. Should the number of Website Visitors cause the number of Users to exceed the Licensed Unit, the Licensee must immediately purchase an additional Licensed Unit of the correct size to cover the shortfall.”

      The Aller free license *does* permit web embedding, so long as it conforms to the terms specified in Dalton Maag’s Web Embedding FAQ (namely cufon, or font-face with a WebOnly convert).

      And regarding traffic limits; yes, 1000 *unique* web visitors per-day counts as 1 desktop user, but the license permits 25 (that’s you + 24,000 web visitors per-day!).

    Free font library cufonfonts.com is very helpful but it’s down right now.

    I’ve been playing about with Colaborate and find the thin and light versions don’t work too well at smaller pixel sizes. Such a nice font though I’ve increased the pixel size on the whole site so I can use it.

    Getting ugly fonts. They do not look like the same as on preview. Like resolution is scaled down.
