Header tags are a set of HTML elements used to define headings and subheadings in a webpage. There are six different header tags: H1, H2, H3, H4, H5, and H6. These tags provide structure and help improve the readability of your content.

Benefits of header tags:

  1. Provide content structure
  2. Improve accessibility
  3. Break up blocks of text
  4. Help users skim through content quickly

Adding header tags:

  1. Use your CMS to add headers visually
  2. For HTML, use the following code format: <h1>Your Header Text</h1>, replacing the number with the desired heading level (e.g., <h2>, <h3>, etc.)

Important tips for implementing header tags:

  1. Keep headers concise (10-70 characters)
  2. Include keywords in H1 (primary) and H2 (secondary/LSI) tags
  3. Avoid keyword stuffing
  4. Use only one H1 tag per page
  5. Maintain consistency in header styles and formatting
  6. Don’t skip header levels; respect hierarchy
  7. Make headers compelling using action verbs, numbers, or questions
  8. Optimise for Featured Snippets by answering questions directly, using structured data markup, and keeping content fresh
