How To Use Headings in WordPress

Knowing how to use headings on your WordPress website helps you break up text to make it more scannable as well as help with search engine optimization (SEO)

By using headings, you can separate your text into different sections if it is needed. Breaking up the text with headings makes it easier to scan so the readers can easily find important information. They are also good to use with a step-by-step process. The headings make it easy to find each step and follow along.

Heading 1 (H1)

You have different options for what heading you can use as well. Even though an H1 is an option on your WordPress website, you will not want to use an H1 in your text. An H1 is used for the title of the page, and for SEO reasons, you will not want to have more than one H1 on a single page. (This is why there is an image here instead of an actual H1.)

Heading 2 (H2)

An H2 is a good choice when it comes to using headings to break up your text. Your H2 is generally smaller than an H1 and larger than an H3. The heading you choose to use is personal preference since H2 and H3 are interchangeable.

Heading 3 (H3)

The H3 is usually the smallest heading option. If it is needed, and H3 can be used as a subheading under an H2. Having a subheading helps to highlight other important points within that same section.

Keep in mind that your headings will not look like ours. They are customized for each website, so it will mesh perfectly with your content. If you have any questions about using headings, OKC web design, or website design in Dallas, please reach out.
