add a heading

Headings are a great way to format text into a style that’ll stand out. They also tell the search engines what the important content on the page is, for this reason they should be used with thought.

TIP: The Title of the Post or Page is a Heading 1 and having more than one is detrimental to SEO efforts. Heading 2’s should be used sparingly with 1 or 2 max per page or post. Use the others as desired.

Make a heading:

  • Click to add a new “Block” (section) of content and choose HEADING.
  • Format the heading as desired using the Heading Formatting Toolbar
    • Choose to make all or part of the text Bold, Italic or a link to another website.
    • Select the text you want to format and click the appropriate button.
