HTML Heading

Headings are defined with the <h1> to <h6> tags.<h1> defines the most important heading. <h6> defines the least important heading.

Importance of Headings

  • Use <h1> headings as main headings, followed by <h2> headings, then the less important <h3> headings, and so on.
  • As search engines use headings to index the structure and content of your web pages so use it very wisely in your webpage.
  • Don't use headings to make text BIG or bold. Use it only for highlighting the heading of your document and to show the document structure.
