  • H1 thru H6 tags in Miva 5.5

    I have Miva 5.5 with the PR8 updated. I'm just diving into SEO...I know...a little late but better late than never:) What's the deal with H1 thru H6 tags? Does the meta description take care of that for the STFT page or should I insert the H1 - H6 tags? And if so, where should I insert them? On the STFT page? And if so, where on the STFT page?
    Thanks for all responses.

    Use <H1> for your product titles. Use <H1> for your targeted keyword on your SFNT page.

      Sounds good. I'll put <H1> in my SFNT page. - Should I just put that at the top of the page?

      - Product titles - put a <H1> in the Product Display Page or on each product page header or something?

        P.S. would it pay to put in <meta name="keywords" content=xxxxx, xxxx, xxxx> also?

          Meta Keywords unlike the old days not important. As for the product pages, surround product name like below.

          Code:
          <h1>&mvt:product:name;</h1>  <--- Like this, yet nothing else should be in <H1> tags on PROD page.
          As for SFNT, matter of preference... Just focus your main "target" word with <H1>, yet nothing else using tag. Avoid using <h1> tags on CTGY pages as it will only dilute the individual product names.

            General rules for H1 tags....

            You should only have ONE <h1> tag on any single page. This should be the most important information on the page. On a product page, I would put this as the Product Name and use high ranking keywords.

            You can then have multiple <h2> through <H6> tags on the page to give higher rankings to headings. The tags should be embedded in order in the code. So a paragraph should have the main header as <h2> and then sub headers should be <h3> tags, sub-sub headers should be <h4> etc.... You shouldn't use multiple <h2> and <h3> tags throughout a single paragraph. They should be used in order of importance. A bad example would be :

            <h2> This is the starting of a very badly coded paragraph</h2> This paragraph is very <h2>poorly</h2> coded. <H3>many</h3> of the header tags are done <h2>Improperly</h2>. They do <h2>NOT</h2> flow in order of <h4>Importance<h4>. Although it may or may not effect <h2>SEO</h2>

            The proper way to do this would be:
            <h2> This is the starting of a properly coded paragraph</h2> This paragraph is <h3>properly</h3> coded because the header tags are done in order. <H3>Many</h3> of the header tags are <h3>repeated<h3> but because they are all in order of <h3>importance</h3> they will still be optimized for <h4>SEO</h4>

            Hope that helps.

                This paragraph is <h3>properly</h3> coded because the header tags are done in order.
                Personally, I would use strong tags instead of h3 if you are going to use them inline like this.

                I would save any of the H tags for headings and sub headings

                  Re: H1 thru H6 tags in Miva 5.5

                  For some reason my page breaks if I do not put this code at the beginning of my product description: <H2></H2>.

                  I think the problem is somewhere in my product page Display layout which is below. I am not sure if the H1 and H2 tags are correctly coded as well. Any help would be much appreciated.

                    Re: H1 thru H6 tags in Miva 5.5

                    Basic placement question: This is my SFNTpage. I stuck an <H1> tag and used a key word "musical instruments". But the title below that is "store name" (music for kids). Should I make the <title> store name </title> between the H1 tags or should I do it separate like I did?

                    <mvt:item name="html_profile" />
                    <H1>Musical instruments</H1>
                    <head> <META name="y_key" content="1fb43f64bcc05a1c" />
                    <meta name="verify-v1" content="Zi3ttCfnAOmKo/Obak5YDkkTTCGa1hk7Pqd8ZDtdLEE=" >
                    <title>&mvt:store:name;</title>
                    <base href="&mvt:global:basehref;">
                    <mvt:item name="head" param="head_tag" />
                    <meta name="keywords" content="electric guitar,musical instruments,music software,drum set,dj equipment,guitar,sheet music,guitar tab,drum,microphone,violin,trumpet,saxophone,ampli fier,bass guitar,recording,percussion,music book,recording software,guitar store,pro audio,home recording,stage lighting,musical equipment">

                      you don't use HTML markup tags in the "Head" of your templates. They should be used ONLY after the <body> tag. Also, your description seems a bit long. Should be less than 160 characters. See http://www.seomoz.org/learn-seo/meta-description for more details. btw, IMO Descriptions are MUCH MORE important than keywords...since its actually seen (hopefully) by humans.

                        When writing conditional statments, you have to consider if the presentation formatting is PART Of the conditional or external to it for example

                        <h2>
                        %IF% (special content exists)
                        Write it here
                        %ELSE%
                        Write This Here
                        %END%
                        </h2>

                        and this

                        %IF% (special content exists)
                        <h2>Write it here</h2>
                        %END%

                        So with that in mind, look at the first conditional in your example.
