H1 and H3 Tags for SEO

Hi, All.
Matt Carter in one of his famous SEO article writes,

"H1 and H3 Tags

Another thing that help to increase Google rankings, is at the very top of your page you should have a Heading 1 tag, otherwise referred to as an H1 tag. Make sure your keyword phrase is in that H1 tag.

You should also have an H3 tag somewhere on the page, and make sure that your keyword phrase is in this also."

Does here the word 'Tag' stands for heading ( I think so)? If it is not so please explain its meaning.

Yes, <h1> ... </h1>, <h2> ... </h2>, <h3> ... </h3> are heading tags. H1 is your "main heading", h2 and h3 are sub-headings. These are important for SEO so it is recommended to put your keywords into your headings. Just make sure that it would look natural and would not disturb the flow of your article.

If you are using Wordpress, then the titles of your posts and pages are automatically H1.

You could find more information on heading tags on these pages:
