On our WordPress and Drupal sites Heading 1 is used for all page titles. A Web page should only have one Heading 1 but may have several sub-topics hierarchically appropriate for Heading 2. Never skip over a heading level, (e.g. from Heading 1 to Heading 3).
For each website, a designer has determined how the Headers will look and be differentiated from each other. Use Headers to create a consistent stylistic presentation for your visitors. If you think the design of the headings needs improvement, then contact the Web team and we will help fix them for the entire website.
Search engines, like Google, weigh headers higher in results than bold text. They do not like pages with multiple Header 1’s. Screen readers, used by visually impaired visitors, present the content in a more structured way that is easier for non-visual navigation.
Writing great headlines is critical for writing great website content.
