XF 1.2 SEO question - is it important to have 'Home' in the breadcrumb?

    So we have changed our home breadcrumb element to be an image of a home.
    We have kept the text 'Home' for it, but shifted it out of public view with a text-indent: -9999px;
    Now I want to replace the image with the fontawesome home icon which means I have to remove the text-indent. Then the 'Home' text becomes partially visible under the icon in IE.
    With my limited CSS knowledge, it seems to me that I can do one of two things:

    1) remove the Home text.
    2) add a span round it:
    <span style="color: transparent">{xen:phrase home}</span>
    Bearing in mind the potential SEO implications of removing the Home text, which option would you recommend? Or do you have a better one?
