Heading tags are HTML elements used to represent the headings of your page. Headings help visitors and search engines understand what the page is about.
Tips for Heading Tags
- Use keywords the visitors would use, or you want search engines to relate to your site.
- Do not use the same keywords in heading tags across different pages on your site.
When you add a title in the editor, heading tags are applied automatically and added to the page's code.
Add an H1 Heading Tag
To add an H1 tag, add a title on the first section of that page. The H1 tag acts as the title of each page.
Add H2, H3, H4 Heading Tags
To add an H2, add titles on the other sections. H3 for the item title text, H4 for the subtitle for all the sections of that page.
Checking the Heading Tags
You can use the browser inspect tool to check which heading tags are:
- Right-click the text you want to check.
- Select "Inspect".
- A panel appears on the right side (or the bottom side) and you can see the heading tag is H2.
