Use <h> tag for web site

Hello guys,
Our web designer designed a web site. But he is using H1 tag to our logo, h2 for content title and h3 for some points. But again he used h2, then h3.
My Question is :
Can we use h1,h2,h3 more than one time?
It there any problem If I use like (h1 then, h2 then, h5) ?

You can use it, but don't do this a lot of times (it is better to put h1 and h2 tags and your best keywords inside!) This will exactly tell google which are the most important keywords you want to rank your site for. If you put about 20, 30 keywords in header tags, it will look unnatural for google and this will NOT help you to get ranking. About 2-3 times per page is pretty enough to use H1 tag

A properly structured set of heading tags is a search engine friendly (and people friendly) set of heading tags.

Quote:
Heading structure is important not only to present a clear structure to the web page but also in consideration of those using text readers and the search engines.
Heading Structure – Heading Tag

Quote:
Heading hierarchy on a web page is little hard for some to understand. In this article, we’ll try to clear up the confusion by comparing heading hierarchy in a web document with how you use headings in a printed document.

In web page coding there are heading tags H1 through H6 available to format the headings in the web page. H1 is the largest, H6 is the smallest. Just like an article printed on a piece of paper, the default size of the heading represents the importance of the heading. These sets of HTML tags are meant to define headings in the page, not to format just any text on the page.
Heading Hierarchy

H1 should go around the title of the page.

You can use multiple h2 heading tags on a page to define sections of the page.

Under the h2 you can use h3-6 (as required) for subheadings of h2.

Quote:
It there any problem If I use like (h1 then, h2 then, h5) ?
Yes. You are using h5 for formatting instead of for heading structure.

Note: if you don't like the style of a heading tag, you can change it in your CSS.

Your web designer did very exact thing.

Ya you are allowed to use h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, h7 no restrictions

Ya its a problem man let me clear regarding this point. H1 means Heading 1

So it would be a stupidity to jump after using h1,h2 then to h5. Because ur about to skipping two Headings.

Its like your kid want to read in 1st standard then 2nd standard then he wants to read in 5th standard What about 3 and 4 ?

But using excessive heading tag is not good. Its good to use up to H5

You can but then Google won't take the tags as serious if you have H1 tags for several different things on the page. So keeping a good balance would be your best option.

use only one h1 tag and put your main keyword in it but you can use multiple h2 tags but take care of your keyword density, it should not be more than 5% of your content

Don't use H1 tag more than one time in a page. This is not good practice in SEO. Yes you can use h1 then, h2 then, h5.

Let me tell you matrix or algorithm of H1, H2, H3, & H4 Tag

H1 Tag Should Be One Time
H2 Tag Should Be Maximum Two Time
H3 Tag Should Be Maximum Five Time
H4 Tag Should Be Unlimited

Above enlisted matrix for heading is the standard for search engine optimization.

I agree with the h1 but where did you get the numbers for h2 through 4?

You will never get a straight answer to your question, best thing is to do split testing and come to your own conclusions. While some claim it is very important others will say it does not matter. This is why testing is a part of marketing.

Keep in mind also that what works for joe does not mean the same will work for jane.

I also think that in seo terms you should use h1 tag just one time and you should put your main keywords in h1 tag.You can use h2 and h3 tags more than once.

Agree with H1 as well. It is a common sense to use H1 once in a page. But HTML is right, I think I miss that standard that you are saying on the remaining H tags. Can you source out a credible link on where did you get the information? I appreciate that.

I agree, I would like to see the cited source. We all know what the search engines say but (unless I missed it) I have not seen one cited source on this thread that shows "PROOF" that the H tags make a huge difference or not.

* huge difference being the keyword here

It looks like we won't be getting an immediate answer to this since sslsecurity has been banned. I'm curious to know if this is true, because I'm currently revamping the optimization of my site including H tags. Matts Cutts over at Google is cracking down on over-seo'ed sites with the new overoptimization penalty.

I've never heard such rules of H Tags except H1.
