Pro Tip: Organize the text on your page into a readable format both for you and for search engines. Learning how to use appropriate H1 tagging, and so on is essential to a successful SEO strategy. Below is a break down of the types of Heading Tags and their significance. 

  • H1 = The Largest Heading Style. Search engines look for this to determine the meaning of your page. It is in the top of the hierarchy of tags found on a web page.
  • H2 = Medium Sized Heading. Generally is a subheading and should be relevant to the keywords in your h1 tag
  • H3 = Standard Sized Heading. Generally is a subheading of the H2 helping to capture the overall theme.
  • Paragraph = Standard Text Block. The core body of your content. Generally, the keyword rich filler content.
