    Hi, the headline tags (h1,h2,h3...) play a major roll in on-page SEO of your website.

    Depending on the keyword you're trying to rank the content (article), you should put it as your h1 heading and also include it in your h2 heading.

    If you are using wordpress, you can easily set headings using the text editor interface, otherwise the html code looks something like this:

    <h1>Your keyword</h1>

    For h2,h3, just change the number inside those brackets.

    Hope this helps

    Kind Regards,
    Zannix

    Exactly, put the h1 heading as the title of your article, and h2 headings as subtitles

    Each article should contain an h1 title with your keyword in it.

    This will help Google see what the article is about (in other words, what keyword you're trying to rank the article for).

    H2 headings are not neccessary, but you can also add them within articles, as it will put even more emphasis on the keyword you're trying to rank for.

    The easiest option is to use a WordPress theme which automatically publishes the article title you enter WITH the required <h1>...</h1> tags. If your theme doesn't do this automatically, a simple edit at the back end will correct it; anyone in the Warriors For Hire advertising WordPress help will do it for you.

    Then, somewhere close to the beginning of your article enter a sub-heading, <h2>...</h2> highlighting an important point of the article, and including your keyword.

    Similarly, as your article progresses, pull another important point and surround it with <h3>...</h3> tags.

    H1 tag is for Homepage Title, H2 is for Post or article title , H3 is for sidebar stuff or comments! for an example : ABC.com With title (apple banana cake) have a post apple is good and have sidebar Which display recent comments .. Then it would be great if you use h1 Tag for apple banana cake, H2 For Apple is good and h3 For displaying text recent comment.

    Header tags show the importance of each element on a page.

    There is a lot of options in adding h1, h2, h3 tags. Here is my tips:

    Option #1
    <h1>Title of your post</h1>
    <h2>Subtitle of your post</h2>
    <h3>Another subtitle of your page</h3>
    Example: keyword is "Earn Money Online"
    <h1>How to Earn Money Online</h1>
    .....Paragraph of your post.....
    <h2>Tips on How to Earn Money Online<h2>
    .....Paragraph of your post.....
    <h3>Earn Money Online with This Easy Steps<h3>

    Option #2
    <h1>Title of your post</h1>
    <h2>First sentence of your paragraph (Must contain keyword)</h2>
    <h3>First sentence of another paragraph (Must contain keyword)</h3>

    Hope this one helps

    The H tag must be put in the content..

    is should look like this..

    <h1>Content Title</h1>

    <h2>Content Subtitle</2>
    Content........................................... ............................

    I would make the website title h1, the page title h2 and the subtitles h3 etc.
    But I have also seen a lot of people do otherwise with succes. I think the most important thing is that your keyword is in pretty much all the h-tags.

    It is fairly easy, put the H1, H2, H3 tags in the body. You probably have already created them is you are creating a site through a service. If you are strictly using HTML then you will have to do them yourself. All the tags are is the different sizes. H1 is the biggest and the bots will notice the H1 tag first, the Title, and then so on down the line. Try to put the keyword in the tags, but it is not absolutely necessary, but very helpful. You can have great Serps without the keyword in the tags. Good luck.

    I'll use the following color codes to make it easier:

    H1
    H2
    H3
    H4
    H5
    H6

    Using Superset To Be Bodybuilder

    If you have been lifting weights for sometime or have been reading bodybuildingmagazines and journals, you would have probably heard of super setting.

    If you want to be big, then why didn’t you superset like them since you have seen that super setting can help you build big muscles and be bodybuilding gigant?

    OK, hopefully you can see straight away that you have a number of problems.

    What I would do is get rid of the H2 tags for the menu items and content, and no need to go down to H6 tags.

    I'd use something like
