    As long as the banner image on your homepage will NOT consume too much loading speed of your site then it would be fine and will not hurt when it comes to seo and ranking.

    Thank you for your quick response coolrohit222002. Yes in some cases it took a couple of seconds before the site is completely loaded. Some already told me that at first glance, the site doesn't seem to use space well because of the gigantic header.

    Rotating banner and sliders have become very common in home page of any website. It makes the look of website completely professional. It is one of the best way to get attention of the visitors to the most important services in your website. Even a small business website can appear quite appealing if the banners or sliders are properly placed.

    Hi TestingWhiz1,

    "It is one of the best way to get attention of the visitors to the most important services in your website." Yes, I agree! But some told me that a gigantic header is not necessarily can attract visitors what they want is the functionality of the site. So, I have this second thoughts on removing the banner or not. Hmmm thank you for your reply I need this for the site I'm developing. Looking forward for more advices. :)
