Hello folks,

I have a question regarding Headings (H1, H2,...).

The main page of my website has more than 15 paragraphs, and each paragraph starts with its own title. When it comes to SEO and ranking, is it a good idea to put all those titles in H1 format? Or what?

By the way, one of the pages of my website is a FAQ page, so what about the title of each question there? Is it better to have them in H1 format, or H2?

Thank you so much for any help.

    No, don't have 15 <h1> tags.

    Use one <h1> tag at the top of your page & anything else use <h2> tags.

    Heading tags are alternative SERP titles so don't go blasting the page with heading tags, think about the content subject & use heading tags in a logical way.

    Make sure the entire page is relevant to the single <h1> text & page <title> text.

  • You should not use H1 tag more than once in a page. This is a good practice.

    For the rest of the H-tags, you can use H2 tags or H3 tags. But remember to use only ONE H1 tag in per page!

      It depends on the version of HTML your site is using. For older versions (HTML4 or XHTML), one h1 tag per page is enough. However, rules change in HTML5 as you can have one h1 tag per section. So you could have an h1 title in the <nav>, one in the <article>, and one for each <aside>. Also, one in the <footer>.

        Nothing changes.

        Google is smart enough to know a heading tag when they find one, especially considering the heading tag HTML code is the same since the 1990s.

    One of the most important thing including H1 tag within the website is that it tells the search engines what your site is all about rather than just bold the title with some color on it. Also a better way to position your site in search results.

    Adding multiple H1 and H2 tags in a single page does not comes under good SEO activity. If your website is having FAQ page then you can target all queries in that page. In FAQs page, adding user based queries are much likely to appear on Google search results as those are the queries that users use to search about your related services.

      Part one = correct
      Part two = cobblers, use as many as you need.
