    If you have a blog, then the post title should be considered the H1 tag. The keywords that you use in the heading tags for each of your web page are very important. You should be using H1, H2 and H3 tags on your site. If you aren’t currently doing so then it is suggested that you implement such a format. This will allow you to get more results from the keywords that you use in those tags. Ultimately, that will allow you to be more successful with your search engine optimization methods.
