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


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.
