When we develop online content H1 Headers Tags and Title Tags for SEO are a big part.
Used correctly, they can increase your position in search engines.
However, used incorrectly, header tags can negatively impact rankings and even lead to penalties and lower results.
Define the Title Tags & H1 Headers
Here is the actual HTML code we’re discussing:
- Title Tag:
- Alt Tag
The <h1> to <h6> tags are used to define HTML headings.
<h1> defines the most important heading. <h6> defines the least important heading.
The alt attribute provides alternative information for an image if a user for some reason cannot view it (because of slow connection, an error in the src attribute, or if the user uses a screen reader).
The <title> tag
Defines the title of the document. The title must be text-only, and it is shown in the browser’s title bar or in the page’s tab.
The <title> tag is required in HTML documents!
The contents of a page title is very important for search engine optimization (SEO)! The page title is used by search engine algorithms to decide the order when listing pages in search results.
The <title> element:
defines a title in the browser toolbar
provides a title for the page when it is added to favorites
displays a title for the page in search-engine results
Here are some tips for creating good titles:
Go for a longer, descriptive title (avoid one- or two-word titles)
Search engines will display about 50-60 characters of the title, so try not to have titles longer than that
Do not use just a list of words as the title (this may reduce the page’s position in search results)
So, try to make the title as accurate and meaningful as possible!
