Global Colors, Global Fonts and Theme Styles in Elementor

> Introduction to Elementor, Site settings

Create your own design system with global colors and text styles that can be easily assigned to elements of your site.

Global colors

Set predefined global colors (primary, secondary, text and accent colors), custom colors inline or create new global colors from Elementor’s global settings.


Predefined global colors

By default, the predefined colors(primary, secondary,text and accent) are pre-filled from your theme’s CSS. Change them here to override your theme settings. Which elements are affected by the default color palette:

  • Primary colors are used for titles and icons.
  • Secondary colors are used for list item backgrounds, subtitles, animated headings and price tables.
  • Text colors are used for paragraphs and menu items.
  • Accent colors are used for links, button backgrounds, tab and accordion headers and badges.

Each of the colors will be used in several widgets similar to the previous examples. Below are some color examples to help visualize the areas in which each color is used.

New global colors

In addition to the 4 predefined global colors (primary, secondary, text and accent), you can add any color you choose to the global palette, for use in any Elementor color option.

Online custom colors

You can also select any custom color to use online without adding it to the global color palette.

From any Elementor page or post, click on the hamburger menu in the upper left corner of the Widgets Panel, then click on Site Settings > in the SYSTEM DESIGN section > click on Global Colors.

  1. Edit color: click on the color swatch to select a new color for any existing color. Names can also be changed. Click on the color name to change the name. For example, you can change Main to Titles, Accent to Highlight, etc.
  2. Add Color: click on the Add Color button to add a new global or inline custom color
  3. Delete color: place the cursor over the color swatch and click on the trash can icon that appears.

Hexadecimal color system

In HTML, Hex or hexadecimal code is used to define colors. To better understand how this code is transcribed, let’s take a look at this graphic:

Hex Colors

As we can see in the image followed by the numeral symbol or hash mark # Hex codes to define a color have 6 more digits, which define a color. RGB (Red Green Blue or Red Green Blue) all the colors of the spectrum are composed of the mixture of these three base colors. In the Hex code the first two digits correspond to the color Red, the middle two to Green and the last two to Blue.

Imagine that you have three cans of paint, one red, one green and one blue, and you mix these colors in a container by adding a certain amount of each one, the result will be a certain color. Well, in this case it is exactly the same, depending on the amount of each color we add, we will obtain a specific color.

So far so good, but … in Hex codes there are not only numbers, but also letters, let’s see why. We are used to work with the decimal system, i.e. with a base of 10 digits (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9) using these digits we compose any numerical quantity. In the case of Hex color codes we work with hexadecimal base, that is, instead of 10, we use 16 digits (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, A, B, C, D, E and F).

Photoshop color palette

Using only two digits the smallest hexadecimal value is 00 (equivalent in decimal to 0) and the largest FF (equivalent in decimal to 255), i.e. we can add to the mixture of each color between 0 and 255. Let’s see some examples represented in hexadecimal form:

  • #000000 (Black: in decimal 0 units of red, 0 of green and 0 of blue)
  • #FFFFFFFF (White: in decimal 255 units of red, 255 units of green and 255 units of blue)
  • #FF0000 (Red: in decimal 255 units of red, 0 of green and 0 of blue)
  • #00FF00 (Green: in decimal 0 units of red, 255 units of green and 0 units of blue)
  • #0000FF (Blue: in decimal 0 units of red, 0 of green and 255 of blue)
  • #999999 (Gray: in decimal 153 units of red, 153 of green and 153 of blue)

With this system, a 24-bit computer can reproduce up to 16,777,216 different colors, which is more than enough, considering that the human eye can only distinguish 10 million colors.

Importance of SEO positioning in Google

Positioning in Google is fundamental in any digital strategy. It is important to note that there are two different types of results: SEM results and SEO results, the latter generating an ROI of 20%.

SEM vs SEO Results

SEM results are those achieved through advertising on Google, while SEO results are those achieved by optimizing the website to appear in Google’s top search results.

Video content on YouTube and Instagram

Video content is becoming more and more relevant in SEO content strategy. YouTube and Instagram are two of the most widely used platforms for sharing branded videos, although each has its own particularities. It is important to take these differences into account and adapt the content according to our needs. On YouTube, for example, videos should be longer and more detailed, while on Instagram, shorter and more eye-catching videos can be used.

Brand profiles in social networks

Having a presence in social networks is essential to maintain a good SEO positioning strategy. These brand profiles must be consistent with the content of our website and be active with regular publications. In addition, it is important to use keywords in the biography and use attractive content to invite users to visit our website.

Content structure, internal links and spelling

Content structure is one of the most important elements when creating content for SEO. The title hierarchy from H1 to H4 must be taken into account and follow a logical order in the content structure. It is also essential to include both internal and external links to improve the navigation and authority of our website. Finally, we must not neglect the spelling and grammar of the content, as they can negatively affect the quality of our website and therefore harm the positioning in search engines.

Keys to good SEO copywriting

To achieve a good SEO positioning in Google and improve the traffic to our website, we must take into account certain keys in the writing of our contents. These include:

Keyword research

Before writing SEO copy it is important to do keyword research. We must choose those words that are related to our content and that have a high search volume but at the same time have low competition. This will help us to better position our content in search results.

Text structure and linkbuilding

The structure of the text is key in writing a good SEO text. We must structure it with H2, H3 and H4 subtitles and use internal links that redirect to other contents of our website and external links to other sources of information related to our sector. This will contribute to increase the authority of our website and improve our positioning.

URL, title and meta description writing and optimization

The wording of the URL, the title and the meta description of our content are also important factors in SEO positioning. We must create a simple and descriptive URL, a catchy title and a meta description that summarizes the content clearly and concisely. In addition, we must include in them our keywords in a natural and coherent way.

We should not be overly obsessed with optimization per se, but focus on creating valuable, interesting and compelling content for our audience. All this will help us to improve our SEO positioning in Google and to generate quality visits to our website.

Internal and external link generation and results analysis

The generation of internal and external links is essential to improve the SEO of our website. Internal links help to distribute the value of the pages of our website, which improves the SEO of all of them, while quality external links bring authority and relevance to our website, which helps it to rank better.

Analysis through tools such as Google Analytics and Search Console

To measure the success of our SEO strategy we must analyze the data obtained through tools such as Google Analytics and Search Console. These tools allow us to know the traffic of our website, its origin, the keywords used by users, the average duration of the visit, among other aspects. In this way, we can detect and correct possible errors that are affecting our position in Google. In addition to these tools, there are other advanced options that allow us to improve the efficiency of our SEO strategy.
