Heading tags are used to differentiate the headings and sub headings of the page from the rest of content. The heading tags are h1, h2, h3 ,h4, h5 and h6. All of these tags are important in there own way. Following are the rules for optimizing seo using heading tags
1. Organize heading tags in order according to the requirement.
2. Include exact target phrases within heading tags.
3. Use support content after heading tags.
4. Try to add fresh content all time according to relevancy.

You can use the heading tags in your content in an organized way. You can place the most important keyword in H1, then h2, h3 so on to h6. Wordpress provides easy way to use header tags.

The H-tags are the most important and it should never be skipped on a page. You can place your target keywords across H-tags (H1 to H6). Heading tags help the user to understand of what the page content is about. And search spiders pay attention to the words used in the heading tags.

For SEO benefit, it will be a best practice to include your primary keyword on h1 tag. In one of my blog post, I wrote on it and here is the example from that post.

Primary Keyword: Work Boots

Title: Work Boots | Your Company Name
URL: yourdomainname.com/work-boots/
Heading Tag (h1 Tag): Best Work Boots
Body Contain: Here is a list of Best Work Boots for Men and Women.
Image Alt Tag: Work Boots for Men / Work Boots for Women
Internal Text: Check More Work Boots
Meta Description: We are one of the best work boots saller in USA…
File Name (if applicable): Work Boots Catalogue

I dont focus on h2, h3 tag for SEO. I just put the natural subheadings to make my content more scan able.

Use only one H1 tag in each and every page. But you can use other header tags like h2, h3, h4, h5, h6.

Default Headings

Only one H1 on each page.
Plus make your H1 tailored to your pages subject matter. Then each h2, h3 and so on pertains to the subject of your H1.

This would be a proper heading structure:

h1 - Solar System
h2 - Planets in the Solar System
h3 - Earth
h3 - Mars
h3 - Jupiter

Hope this helps!

Heading tag is just like a name of the shop. Try to put targeted keyword in H1 on the page because Google gives first priority to H1.

The top level header tag is h1 which is placed at the top of the document, put your primary keyword here and then comes h2 and place your secondary keywords there and then h3 and so on. you can have only 1 h1 tag per page.
