Headings make a page easier to navigate by ordering the level of information from most important to least important, using font size as a visual representation of information hierarchy. People visiting a page for the first time will often skim the content first, using the headings as a way to see the page's structure at a glance. Additionally, search engines use the heading tags to index your website, which helps improve search engine optimization (SEO).

It is important to remember two things:

  1. Heading tags are to be used to create headings only. Do not use heading tags as an "easy way" to create bigger or bolder text.
  2. Conversely, only create headings with the heading tags. Manually increasing text size or weight may look like a heading, but does not function like one.

Drexel's heading styles look like the following:

  • <h1>Heading 1</h1>

    The largest heading. Sitecore automatically includes the H1 tag so there is no need to manually add it.

  • <h2>Heading 2</h2>

    Smaller than Heading 1

  • <h3>Heading 3</h3>

    Smaller than Heading 2

  • <h4>Heading 4</h4>

    Smaller than Heading 3 and so on with Heading 5 etc.
