<h1> and <strong> tags





georgekalathil
Hi all,
I have a doubt regarding the use of <strong> and <h1> tags. I have a site which has around 50 pages and in all the pages the heading is implemented using the <strong> tag. The site doesn't have a singe <h1> tag. Is there any harm in this, when SEO is considered. Or shall I replace <strong> with <h1>

I think <h1> is stronger than <strong> in terms of SEO, but also using <strong> for headings is not using to web standards.

Search engines need to know whats what on your website. Then you have to tell them. Mark headings with <h1>, <h2>, etc. NOT <strong>! And you shouldn't use <h1> etc on text that aren't headings.

By the way, remember that a normal page would have only one <h1>. Smile

Use semantic markup (structure each part of the page with the proper tags) and your site will be loved by the SE sites. Smile

no need of any change.

Its fine and will not make any difference to your search results.

In addition, search engines assign a hierarchical rank to the different headline markup tags, and except for the <title>, the <h1> tag is the most powerful piece of information you can serve to the search engines about a particular page.
