Design and Typography

Typography is the way fonts, colors, and font sizes and configurations influence web design. Ty-pography can support the brand emotions and style, while also helping designate functional are-as like links or calls to action. Headings are a key part of these configurations, which is why Hatch websites have H1 through H7 H tags. H1 is the most bold, stunning, and memorable of all tags, which is why it is usually reserved for page titles. H2 tags are used for major subheadings, while H3 tags are typically used for labels and categorizing to give your site a clean, organized look.

Search Engine Optimization

H tags also play a role in SEO by helping identify the primary focus of that page’s content. Google looks at things with the view that if you’ve used a H tag to make the content more easily visible, then it must be the primary topic of the page. Because of this, we recommend incorporat-ing your search phrases into your H1, H2, and H3 tags. In fact, we recommend that you use at least three different H3 tags in each blog post so this content can deliver a greater SEO boost.

By properly using H tags, your site will look better organized for visitors and be better optimized for Google. Applying these headings appropriately on each page will make a big difference for your website’s results. Feel free to reach out if you have additional questions about using H tags for your site!
