We were asked recently if, when creating a Website, if H1 tags should be used to ensure high ranking. The person had received an email talking about Search Engine Optimization Myth, and the email stated, “There is no evidence to prove this. However, this is one of the most common myths.”
Speaking from experience, sites I have optimized with proper writing of the H1 tag or the ‘heading 1’ tag, have had more stable rankings, as compared to sites that lacked that important element. It was easier for me to maintain rankings for particular key terms that I have coded in the H1 tag.
Remember search engine crawlers look for your H1 description (aside from other important SEO elements, i.e. meta tags), to determine the relevance of your page. Omitting this tag isn’t good SEO practice.
Among experienced search engine optimization specialists, the H1 or the heading 1 tag still ranks high among other SEO relevancy factors. So, for page relevance and rank stability, putting heading tags for SEO is standard operating procedure for Badger PR.
