    No such thing as a header tag. What does that say about you and the other 15?

    It means you are as clueless as the other people thanking you for this slop.


    If you were disappointed in your results today, lower your standards tomorrow.

        If you or anyone else thinks that there is a header tag, you are sadly mistaken.

        It comes from not knowing a url from street sign.

        h1, h2, etc. are heading sizes.End of story.

        The <head> is a specific section of a websites html.

        I don't even have to read some woo-woo-nonsense to be able to say that IF they are saying there is a header tag, then they are as clueless as you are.

        You cannot quote a fool to prove a point.

        Oh but wait! I took the bait to see what clueless nonsense you are referencing. Even they say it's heading!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


        If you were disappointed in your results today, lower your standards tomorrow.

    Google pays lots of attention to mobile version, adaptable design and https. For some reason, most users look for mobile version too, but nobody thinks whether it's user friendly.

    What is the fascination with SEO wannabes trying to connect social to SEO?

    They've NEVER once proved any type of connection. Linking to some shitty SEO guru blog isn't proof.

    Just BS link spammers following the herd.

    Your blog post is a H1 tag. What need you add an extra H1 tag in post content? Better add your focus keyword in H2 tag and another keywords i.e. long tail keywords in H3 tag.

    I want to say that you should add new content all th time. Sites that have new content added on a regular basis are seen as more reliable than sites that rarely do. This also helps you to increase the amount of relevant content on your site, which also improves your rankings.
    Also you should use proper anchor text fro interlinks. Don't use "here" or "there".
    You should also focus on search phrases, not single keywords, and put your location in your text to help you get found in local searches.
