At persent we cannot edit the format of the Header. Currently I create my own banners incorporating the header into the jpeg, and leave the header on my site as empty. Does this affect the way google and other search engines view my site i.e. pages with know Headers?

Hi there Ria,
There will be a small effect on the SEO if you leave out the Header but what you can do is wrap the most important text on your site (even that which would have been your header)in H1 tags.
In the HTML of your text (that you can get by clicking on the HTML tab in the text editing tool bar) add <h1> and </h1> in front and behind the text you want to be picked up and this should help with the SEO.
