How to Use Headers
One of the most-used item in content building for the web are headers. Headers are useful in organizing content by giving structure. It is important to use headers properly as screen reading software will read items in order of heading levels. It is also pertinent to properly utilize headers to make content easily searchable through search engines like Google.
Headers go from h1 to h6. Consider each header to differentiate a section of content and its sub-content. h1 header is the highest level content and h6 is the lowest. As mentioned before, headers are meant to differentiate sub-sections, so avoid using them simply based on text-size output. You can modify text size within the Cornerstone builder as long as you keep the structure of the headers in-tact.
Dos and Don'ts
- Use headers for structure.
- Use headers in order for screen reader parsing capabilities.
- Utilizing them as an organizational structure for nested content.
- Do not use multiple h1 elements on one page. As a rule of thumb, only use the h1 tag for the title of your page.
