Lots of websites don’t feature proper use of HTML header tags. In this blog post we’re going to look at three key reasons why every site should incorporate proper use of these important tags.
As header tags go, you’ll find that H1 is the most important and carries the most weight. The point of this blog isn’t to make you go and use headers 1 to 6 in every single post and page that you publish, it’s just to make you aware that headers do exist – and that on lots of pages on your site the chances are that they will improve the usability of your site.
When using header tags remember not to stuff them with keywords, and remember to use them in the right sequence – it’s amazing how many people kick off a page with a h6, then use a h2, then finally at the end us a h5. Header tags should be used in numerical order from h1 to h6, otherwise they’re not a whole lot of use.
