Hi guys

I have recently been doing a lot of SEO work on my site and whilst I understand the sort of things that I need to enter under "window title" "description" and "keywords" I'm not sure about "page heading" would I be right in thinking that this is the first line of text that shows up in search engines immedeatly following my site name?

If you look at the following link

http://www.google.co.uk/search?client...

you will see that after my site name chilliz there are just up and down arrows but most of the other "chilliz" have a line of text that follows along the same line...... is this possibly the page heading?

Hello kenny,

Currently it seems the Page Heading has a low SEO score. It is about 4th in the rankings but that's a long way down.

I gather the reason for this is that they've picked up on writers "stuffing' page headings as a way to get noticed. I think the best Idea is to make it as descriptively interesting and accurate as possible and keep the words down. People simply don't read. :)

To continue what peter was saying - if you can see the page heading on page (which you can most of the time) and you dont like it being there (visually) then just exclude it - your not going to lose any search ranks by not having it there - i dont have any on my site.
I think (may be worng) that by having the text of the heading in the page itself this is exactly the same for a search engine.
