    Default 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

    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.

    Here is one of our product pages: http://www.invinciblemusic.com/jordan-rudess/listen

    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">
