Headings are important because they help visitors and search engines better understand your website content. Therefore, it's crucial to use keywords in headings. There are six levels of headings: from Heading 1 (H1) to Heading 6 (H6), with H1 being considered the most essential. Here's how you can exploit the hierarchy of headings for SEO purposes:

  • Use H1 for titles that include your main keywords;

    • Make sure the H1 heading is located at the top of your page and before any other headings

    • Avoid using multiple H1 tags on the same page: this can confuse search engines and dilute the focus of your content

  • Use H2 to break up your content into sections, using similar keywords to the H1 tag

  • Use H3 to break up the content into smaller sections

If you set Heading 1 as a text element's style, the text will automatically have a <h1> tag in your website's code:

In the website's source code, the <h1> tag is visible for the text written in Heading 1 style</h1>

Remember to use your best keywords there: this will make search engines love your website even more!
