Webpage headers H1 | H2 | H3 | H4 | H5
The correct use of page headers can dramaticaly influence you page ranking.
Headers are larger than average text headings found at the top of a web page. They provide a snapshot summary of the content of the page and should be in HTML text format, not image format. One of the easiest ways to keep anyone from finding your site through a search engine is to skip the use of headers, put headers in image format, or omit keywords from the headers on your web pages.
Headers on web pages are the equivalent of article titles in newspapers or magazines.
Headers come in six sizes. In HTML, the following tags indicate the different size headers: <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> and <h6>. The <h1> tag is typically the largest and <h6> is usually the smallest.
It is becoming easier and more practical to integrate headers in your web pages
You'll need to put specific keywords in your headers to increase your rankings
Inserting header tags into your web pages in such a way that your search engine rankings will increase is easy. Put the text of the header in between an opening and closing header tag.
Here's what the code looks like
The result will be a large bold heading that gives your visitors and search engines an idea of the main topic(s) covered on the page.
Aside from the main copy on your web site, the three most important things that will affect your search engine rankings include your title tags, headers on the page, and perhaps most important of all, text links.About the Author
