How can I get Google Web Fonts to work?

I'm in the process of developing a website and I'm trying to use Google Web Fonts but they don't seem to be loading, and instead text is being loaded with Comic Sans MS

Here is the code I've tried in my site.

In the index page, inside the <head> tag
<link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Economica:700italic|Cinzel+Decorative:400,700|Comfortaa|Metamorphous' rel='css/style.css' type='text/css'>
Which are for these fonts:
/*font-family: 'Economica', sans-serif; font-family: 'Bitter', serif; font-family: 'Cinzel Decorative', cursive; font-family: 'Raleway', sans-serif; font-family: 'Comfortaa', cursive; font-family: 'Metamorphous', cursive; Google Web fonts */
An example use of these is in my CSS stylesheet for a <h1> tag
#header h1{ float:left; color:#ffffff; font-size:43px; padding:20px 0 0 20px; font-family:'Cinzel Decorative' cursive;
