On-Page SEO : What Are Header Tags and Their Role in SEO?

Header tags are nothing but headings in your post. If you see the HTML code of your post then you would find something like below-

<h1> Your post title</h1>

<h2> Main heading </h2>

<h3> Sub heading </h3>

HTML header tags are used to differentiate the headings (h1) and sub-headings (h2-h6) of a page from the rest of the content.

HTML has six different heading tags – h1, h2, h3, h4, h5 and h6

The most important heading tag is the h1 tag and least important is the h6 tag.

<h1>This is heading 1</h1>
<h2>This is heading 2</h2>
<h3>This is heading 3</h3>
<h4>This is heading 4</h4>
<h5>This is heading 5</h5>
<h6>This is heading 6</h6>

H1 Tag:

  • The H1 is a HTML tag that indicates a heading in website
  • H1’s are usually the most visually notable content on the page
  • Use only one H1 tag
  • The H1 should be from 20-70 characters
  • Use a focused long tail keywords in your H1
  • Answer user intent with H1 tag

Code sample

<h1> Hi, my name is Header One! </h1>
