HTML Headings

HTML has 6 levels of headings from <h1></h1><h2></h2><h3></h3><h4></h4><h5></h5><h6></h6>.
Each level has a specific meaning and purpose.

Heading 1

Heading 2

Heading 3

Heading 4

Heading 5
Heading 6

<h1>Heading 1</h1>
<h2>Heading 2</h2>
<h3>Heading 3</h3>
<h4>Heading 4</h4>
<h5>Heading 5</h5>
<h6>Heading 6</h6>

As you can see, each heading level is styled differently with the largest font size being the h1 and smallest being the h6. Even though they are styled differently, this doesn’t mean they should be used for styling.

Headings provide information to a web browser about their importance and this has an impact on SEO.

You should use the <h1></h1> for the website title on the home page and blog roll page. But for stand alone pages and posts, the <h1></h1> should be used for the name of the page or post and <p></p> should be used for the website title.

You will see more of how this is done in the various tutorials on the site and the video that is dedicated to Learning HTML.
