Heading in the right direction

Last Update: December 20, 2016

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)?

Yes sir!

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!

It was too hot in Brisbane for me today. Big Storm heading your way. We just beat it back over the range. From Warwick it looked green.

A little noisy one here in Tenterfield at the moment but very little rain.

Good that you were able to get it together and increased your page speed by getting rid of that plugin

Wow, that's a lot of work. In the training Kyle has us use the All In One SEO Pack plugin and I see many using Yoast. What are the benefits for this and should I change mine?

Cathy, that's a whole other debate! My personal take on it is to stick with All in One SEO. I tried Yoast, had issues with it, then went back to AIOSEO.

I'm happy where I am.
