Following the training and after watching Jay's Webinar on Tips To Improve Ranking, I know that I need H1. In my understanding, the title of a post will become an h1 automatically. Is this the same with a page title?

Then I break down my content in pieces and want to give each part a headline.
This is the point where I question myself: Does it need to be an h2 as the next headline or can I immediately go for an h3 or h4? Is there really a hierarchy to be followed for ranking purpose?

Sometimes an h2 seems too big in my post and I would rather go for an h3.

Could somebody bring me on the right track, please?

Thanks,

Anne

Use what looks best to you! It is your site that will reflect you! I use H2 and H3 and sometimes even other sizes depending on the article!

Totally agree with Marion. With my theme, the H3 tags work fine and I definitely get ranked normally.

Thanks, that is what I was doing, but I didn't really know if it' right.

I use H3 or bold for subheadings. It all depends on what looks best on the individual page/post. H1 is automatic for posts and pages titles. ~Marion

You can use any heading size you want. Google doesn't rate graphics or design features.
