The headings (H1...H6) in its original and default form range from very large to smaller. In the early days of the Web, it was terrifying to visit a Web page that had H1 heading. It was almost as terrifying as seeing the blink that followed the first version of Java Script, but that is a different story.
The heading tag is important. It helps other computers, including search engine spiders, to understand the structure of an HTML document. The title or headline of a blog post and article is often a H1, H2 or H3 tag, but fortunately, thanks to cascading style sheets, it is likely to be styled in accordance to the look and feel of the HTML document.
In the preceding text pieces, we have discussed the headings tags and especially the larger ones, H1, H2 and H3. Why is that? According to the Web sites, we have studied; these headings sizes are much more popular than their counterparts H4, H5 and H6 are. On average, there are 1.19 H1, 2.72 H2, 2.15 H3, 0.93 H4, 0.29 H5 and 0.07 H6 on the Web sites we visited.
