Hi,

Just a quicky...

Will google recognise my <h1> tags if they are asigned display: none;?

or any other text for that matter.

Yes, Google doesn't read CSS, just HTML so it will be visible.

But if you're doing this just for the SEO benefits and it's intentionally misleading don't count on Google not figuring it out. It's not the type of thing that would really stretch the algorithm to check for. And, of course, a competitor could always report your site.
