H1 tag

What is the H1 tag?

The H1 tag is an HTML heading commonly used to mark a web page title. It’s the main headline of a page and can be used to create a hierarchy for other headings on the page, such as H2 and H3 tags.

The H1 tag is crucial in SEO (Search Engine Optimisation). Each page must have at least one H1 tag representing the page title. It allows crawlers better understand what the page is about. Most websites use CSS to make the H1 stand out on the page compared to lesser headings like H2, H3, etc.

The text within the H1 tag will usually appear in larger font sizes than other heading tags on the page, making it easily distinguishable from other content.
