    You could use H1 tag in your article heading. H1 tags are known as header tags and these tags are weighed very good in terms of On page SEO.

    Exactly, what everyone has been saying, the actual tag is in the html code but how you would notice something with that tag is that being a header the text comes out larger than the normal content text, also <h2> and <h3>, etc...do the same thing only the header size gets progressively smaller.

    <h1>re haitch one meta tags</h1>

    And try to get it as high up on the page as possible. Make it one of the first things a spider will find when it crawls your pages.

    Everything everyone has said, another way to think about it is organizing the text of your page like a "table of contents". The H1 tag being the largest and most important.

    If you don't like it being so large, you can still control the size, color and font using styles. I could help you with that if you want...

    <html>
    <h1>Appears the Largest Heading</h1>
    blah blah about my story
    <h2>Large Heading</h2>
    more blah about my story
    <h3>Medium Heading</h3>
    </html>
