HTML

Recommended Posts

Heading tags into HTML are <h1>, <h2>, <h3>, <h4>, <h5> and <h7>. This all heading tags use for font size where <h1> is for large fonts and <h6> is smallest font. These tags are used in SEO because it gives more preference to large font tags rather than small font tags for example; any keyword with <h1> includes more effectively than any other tags into the website.

Font size is irrelevant - but higher importance is given to the lower H numbers. H1 as the most important header, H2 secondary, etc.

Think of it this way:

  • H1 is the about the same as a Headline for the press or a chapter of a book. Most developers feel that their should only be one H1 on a page, that is to be used to describe the content for that page. This page is about plants.
  • H2 is the next lower down, sub news on a page for the press or a sub chapter heading in a book. You can separate content with it. On the page about plants we can have multiple sub sections. H2 Indoor plants and H2 outdoor plants.
  • H3 is the next one down, Under Outdoor plants we can have H3 flowers, H3 bushes, H3 Trees, H3 flowering Plants (not bushes really). H2 indoor plants may have H3 flowers, H3 green plants.
  • H4 goes into more detail and not all H3 will have an H4. But H2 Outdoor plants --> H3 Trees may still have H4 flowering trees, H4 Fruit trees, H4 Needle trees, H4 Leaf trees...

 

Every page should have an H1 to describe the page content, not just a bunch of keywords.

Every page can have multiple H2.

Every H2 can have multiple H3.

Every H3 can have multiple H4. etc. for H5, H6.

 

It is rare to see any H5 or H6, most sites doe not go past H3.

 

Some developers believe you should use H1 for the navigation area. Not wrong, just fewer folks think that way. At best I would use H2 as it is part of the page, but it's own set of info, links rather than content about plants.

 

Last note, it bugs me to hear people announce these for SEO. No, you should use this structure because it is logical & intuitive for the USER. A USER who is vision impaired and using a screen reader can jump to the info easily by dropping though the headers. You build sites for the USER who will need to find the content, not the tool that indexes it. However spiders are blind, it does not care about fonts, pictures, colors. Only is the content and structure to get to it, so if the site is well built for the vision impaired and other disabled users, it makes the site much easier for the spiders/search engines. That is why the value is greater fore search engine placement.

 

SEO is about common sense and not tricks.

hello

I am trying to explain HTML Heading.

Headings are defined with the <h1> to <h6> tags and it closed by </h1> to </h6> respectively.Use HTML headings for headings only.Many experts recommend reserving H1 for the page title, H2 for major headings and H3 for major sub headings and so on.Search engines use your headings to index the structure and content of your web pages.
