What are h1/h2 headings?


#1

Hi!

I ran a seo test to my site and test said my site is missing h1 and h2 headings. I've heard about them and tried to google but didn't quite understand what they are. I would appreciate if someone could explain to me.

Best wishes,
Samu

Hi Samu,

This is a link that covers the Heading tags in html. Hope it helps!

I'll also add that using Headings correctly can aid with Accessibility options for users that might have low-vision or be visually impaired.

Ok, I see that h1 or h2 makes something a heading but how about in Webflow where I don't write the code myself?

When you are doing your layout in Webflow just make sure you use a 'Heading' element from the typography section somewhere on your site. You can choose which heading level (1-6) when picking the heading. Just use it in an appropriate place for a heading 1; such as a title of a section or the main topic of the page, etc.

Maybe you got things sorted out but here´s another useful link in that matter

Its good to use them in the right way.

Oh, okay, thanks! I've never even noticed there is such element. I've used 'Text' element for everything. Thank you for taking the time to explain to me :slight_smile:
