Heading in the right direction
No, this is not another blog which attempts to teach you how to use heading tags correctly for SEO!
It's more of a... shall we say... confessionary blog, if you will.
In Live Chat the other day, the ubiquitous debate arose about which heading tags to use and when. So I started thinking about my posts and pages. I realised that, in a large number of them, I use my own CSS selectors (with a Google Font plug-in). This was my way of adding a certain flair to my posts and pages.
The problem with that, though, was that I didn't have enough <h1>, <h2> and <h3> tags. Funnily enough, when I had Yoast installed, alarm bells did go off, but I ignored them.
So, guess what I've been doing since the wee hours of this morning (bearing in mind that it's 16:15, here in Brisbane)?
I've just spent the entire day, going through every single page and post, adding appropriate heading tags. Whew!
And there was an added bonus too: I was able to get rid of a plug-in!
