Header tags help you to separate headings and subheadings on a webpage. These tags are useful in improving the readability of your web page for the SEO purpose.

HubSpot contributor Kayla Carmicheal has shared an article on how to use header tags in blogging.

Carmicheal says, “Header tags and SEO have more in common than it may seem at first glance. Not only are they used to differentiate important pieces of content, but they hold weight with keyword relevancy and readability.

Google favors headers. When it scans your post, it places header tags as high-priority. Ultimately, header tags is what Google uses to tell web browsers their search query is relevant to your post.

That’s why it’s important when using header tags to make sure they’re correctly matching a keyword intent. If a post’s H1 tag doesn’t have a keyword, it won’t rank well in search results”.
