    Hey guys,

    I have just discovered that my WP theme didnt put h1 to title but h2 . I am in game for some time and this happened to me first time .

    I have published 60 artcles , unique nice readable handwritten and didnt understand why they didnt rank in top 1000

    So check your code with every template.

    LOL

    H1 H2 doesnt matter at all.

    This is not the reason you didnt rank.

    While this can partly be true, since we can't directly control search results, we have to at least make the best effort to appear on the first pages.

    Making a mistake like this one means lowering your chances on doing so. However, it may happen, more often when you change the template of your site. It's hard to keep up with every one of the required points.

    Not true.

    You need the keyword in the title tag. Thats already 99% of the onpage SEO required for ranking. Then you need it on the page somewhere, preferrably in ANY H element. Doesnt matter what H, even bold text will do.

    You dont need "every little bit". Some things just dont matter at all. H1 is one of them.

    Do you know what are you talking about?

    I ranked more pages than your post count in past few years.

    Jesus...

    With all due respect, if you are "optimizing" the page, H1 is the second most important SEO component on the page.

    And yet you know nothing...

    I have ranked pure flash sites in Google for competitve keywords. I can confirm that H1, Content & all that other BS DOESNT MATTER.

    What you want to believe is your decision to make.

    If you would test you would know whats up.

    wriper, I'd love to know what your ranking jumps to a week after you have added the h1.

    Title Tag is 99%
    H1 is 1%
    Meta Keywords is 0%

    Excuse me, but since you seem to have your head firmly up your ass so let me teach you something.

    The "O" in SEO stands for "OPTIMIZATION". "Ranking" starts with a "R". ITs not called SER.

    No one said you can't rank a site without a H1 tag,

    They said that the page is not OPTIMIZED FOR SEARCH ENGINES until you OPTIMIZE each on page component.

    If you are using SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION by definition it has to be OPTIMIZED.

    It's not called "Search engine well fuck it, it's enough to rank"

    So yes, brainaic, if you are "optimizing" the page, you need h1, h2, and h3 tags.

    Compare to header tags, initially we should focus on meta tags because its more powerful than header tags.

    In the content if you use your keyword it automatically fetches and drops in SERP page.

    Even though i didn't use any header tags in my website, but i could rank in 1stpage for some keywords. In that i just use <strong> tag for my appropriate keyword.

    There are 1000s of "optimizations" you could perform, which will drive 0 traffic.

    What you are talking about isnt SEO either its WOT (waste of time).

    OP is asking why he doesnt rank in top 1000. The reason can not be H1/H2 ;)

    Besides Matt & Duane Forrester already confirmed there isnt a difference between the different H elements. Even if you use FONT Element to make text big google will count it as an H1. Get your facts streight, then come teaching people who make 10x your income about the semantics of SEO.

    Well the OP does seem to say it did not rank in the top 1000 due to no H1 tag.
