Why You Should Optimize Your H1 Tags

 Headers, your H1 tag, and body content are the bread and butter for your webpage. H1 tags should always include your primary keyword as they are crucial for your SEO. 

H1 Tags For SEO  

The heading tag is used to logically layout your webpage. Consider it a guide to your content, it’s able to break down chunks of body text and make it easier to read. The primary header is your H1 tag or level one tag, this is typically your title. You definitely want to include your primary keyword in your H1 tag. The H1 tag is very important for SEO. The heading structure is composed of supplementary headers following your H1 tag are referred to as H2, H3, H4, and so on. You don’t need to worry too much about optimizing these if you can do so but really prioritize the H1 tag

SEO For Body Content

Body content refers to the content below your H1 and H-tag titles. These are the portions of text below your headers where you can also perform SEO. There is no minimum or “magic” number, but Choquer Creative’s general rule of thumb is that every 100 words per page should incorporate the primary keyword at least 2 to 3 times. You want to have enough text for Google’s algorithm to pick your page, find a middle ground of not too much and not too little content for your website pages. Avoid keyword stuffing and adding filler text to increase your word count. Add your keyword synonyms and LSI keywords when you can and always read it out loud before publishing to make sure that it sounds coherent.
