In a discussion with another person about H2 and H3 headings,
The H1 for the title is the default WordPress setting.
I do a H2 heading for the first paragraph, then just use H3 headings throughout the rest of the article.
In a discussion with some one else, they say each heading in the article is of equal importance so they all should be H2.
Any comments.
Michael.

i tend to use h2 as major headings with h3 as headings if i need to split up the h2 sections so
h2
h3
h3
h2
h3
h2
etc
this shows in the table of contents that hte h3's are sub sections of the h2....

but for google it doesn't matter ...it is all about user experience...
google is happy for you to use multiple h1's....
but make sure your visitors can see easily what is going on in the article...

good luck

Thanks Phil,
I can understand your system, like book form, with the H2 announcing the chapter then the H3's as subsections of the chapter.
Your ending comment makes sense too.
Thanks.
Michael.

I use a mixture of H2 and 3 throughout my posts.

I'm with you Michael
If you use your format and put it in a table of contents, you should see it flowing nicely

Otherwise it is all over the place and quite confusing as well

Thanks Simone,
In my table of contents I have H4,5 and 6 set as content not headings.
The H4 will still appear in the table of contents but in such a way that it cannot be mistaken to be anything else other than a subsection.
I don't think I have ever used H5 or 6.
Stay frosty
Michael.

Hello Michael,

I always follow the first one
with my content and it blends
well with the paragraphs.

Thank you.
