I've been working on my site for some time, it's getting bigger and better and I'm following some great advice on how to get optimze the site with tags and metadata etc. Then I started wondering about the available buttons on the yola webbuilder page. I remember seeing something about paragraphs and headings being important, but I cant remember what Im supposed to do with them. Can anyone shine some light on this? (Im sure you can)

Hi Will,
The Header 1 and so forth that you are seeing will set the size of the text and will also wrap it in a header tag in the code like this:
<H1>This is some really important stuff!</H1>

H1 being the biggest text.

When you do something like this with text it can call out to the search engines that it is important text that they should pay attention to. You don't want to over do this, but it can be a good idea to wrap the main heading of your page in a header tag if it includes your page's main keyword for SEO purposes, and more importantly if you feel it would be helpful to your user in calling out the main topic of the page.

Hope this helps!

Sou como o vento...
mas apenas uma mulher...
apenas alguém que ousa
sonhar... Alguém,
que tinha
uma certeza
de que o
havia lhe
o caminho...
que era só seguir por
ele e estaria segura...doce
engano... nunca esteve tão
perdida... segue só... na
direção do vento...

Which Heading is which? I am trying to resize the heading in my blog and no matter which one I change there doesn't seem to be any difference.
