H1 headings are the main headings on your website. Your headings should be big and bold and very obvious to your visitors.

In terms of SEO, H1 should indicate your page's content. In theory, it's okay if your H1 is not visible as long as you have put your topic on the tag and you already have a heading on your page that your visitors could see.

There is a WP plugin to make your H1 and H2 tags invisible to the reader, but VISIBLE to Google. PM me PHMegacorp.

This is getting into black hat SEO territory... You all know how that ends, right?
