What are Heading Tags?

Heading Tags : There are 6 heading tags available in HTML coding. H1 is the largest and at the top of the heading structure hierarchy. H6 is the smallest and at the bottom of the heading structure hierarchy. Headings tags indicate to a search engine what a page is about. Heading tags label your headline so that search engines will recognize it as "important" on your web page.The HTML tags <h1> through <h6> are used as headings when creating text content. H1 should be the largest of the tags, and is generally used to surround the title of the page or the title of you site. H2 could be used as a secondary header, highlighting specific sections of the page.
Many search engines use sophisticated algorithms to determine the relevancy of a given page in relation to any given search query. As the methods used to spider a page and index relevant Tags and content change over time, so too do the tricks that can be used in order to attract more search engine spiders to your site.
A common practice is to assign a higher relevancy value to pages where a keyword appears in BOLD.
Example:

  • In-between the <b>...</b> Tags or as part of a heading.

  • In-between the <H1>..</H1>, <H2>..</H2> etc. heading Tags.

  • A keyword that appears in such emphasized text is often assumed to be a heading or a sub-title, and is thus often assigned a higher relevancy value.
