Heading Tags Explained

Heading tags are an integral part of SEO (search engine optimization). If you think of your webpage as a newspaper you have:

  • Title – On a website <h1>
  • Article / Subheading – On a website <h2>
  • Smaller Subheading within articles contained under subheader – <h3>

The order of heading tags go down in importance of the content which they are heading and in order of seo importance. For seo purposes it is best to have your chosen keyword within an <h1> or <h2> tag when appropriate. If you are happy with why we use heading tags you may wish to read my tutorial on how to style heading tags and the different methods used.

    I really liked it! Nice idea.
    With some PHP code it’s possible to make it even easier to write poker cards, like just writing [5H][9S] or something like that 🙂
