Sometimes developers also talk about headings, usually <H1> and <H2>, <H3>, <H4>. To translate: H1 is the title of the page or the blog post, and you should only use it once per article. Other headings can be used multiple times, as long as they follow a hierarchical structure – so you should use H2 before you use H3 within a topic. But you can go back and use H2 again after you’ve used H3

They are used in 5 levels of hierarchy. The bigger the number, the smaller the text. It is simply a text sizing and styling tool. For example, if I put some text between <h1></h1>, it will be a large page heading.

<h1>My Blog Page</h1>

^The html code above, if entered into an html document, would be a large heading, typically used to title a page for the viewers to see.

The heading tags are basically good for adding a bold emphasis and size difference to your text. Good luck

How you write your header, or h1 tag, is going to be similar to how you wrote your title tag. Sometimes these can be the same, and that’s OK. Here are a few tips:

1. Put your header tag <h1> </h1> at the top of the page, preferably after the <body> tag.

2. Are you targeting the keywords you wish to rank higher for? If not, go in and modify your tags slightly to include those words. If your h1 happens to be an image, use the image alt tag to add those juicy keywords.

3. Can I have more than 1 header tag on the page? Google will not penalize you, but one is preferred. If you have a need for multiple titles, then perhaps it should be broken into multiple pages, or use one h1, or multiple h2’s.

Just make sure that your head tag properly describes your page content and serves well the concerned article.

The best practice to use the header tag is to use H2 tag for the top heading and than gradually decrease the tags from H3 to H4 and H5 depending on the size of article.
