Using 'Headings 2' for titles/captions - negative effect on SEO? Alternatives? (4 posts)

    Hello,

    I'm using 'Headings' 1/2/3 on many of my pages - often simply for design purposes - to title a paragraph, a video or an image.

    I'm worried this is going to interfere with SEO. For instance on a video page I may have 12 videos each with its own title in Heading 2. Is this confusing for robots and for SEO?

    Thanks

  2. On the contrary, this is exactly what the robots want.

    You want to use <h1> once per page. As for <h2>,<h3> etc. You can use them to your heart's content, but nobody said common sense is not working any more )

    It depends on how they are used. Multiple h1 tags are not necessarily a problem according to Google -
