Adding WordPress Headings
Different Heading Styles
Using different heading styles can make everything about your content standout and give your viewers a better visual representation on what the more important points of your post or page really are. Search engines also use headings differently then normal text as well. So, not only using them will make your site appear more organized and interesting, but it may also help drive traffic as well.
To get started, make sure your post editor is showing the second row of formatting options also known as the “Kitchen Sink” by clicking the “Show Kitchen Sink” button at the far right of the content toolbar.
From there, you’ll see that the default style is “paragraph”. Bring your cursor to the line or paragraph which you’d like to modify and then use the drop down menu to select a different style. You can choose from 6 different heading styles which are great to use for highlighting points in your content that you’d like to emphasize or for separating topics on the same page.
Heading 1 (h1) would be the largest and most important. Heading 2 (h2) is usually slightly smaller and a little less important and so on and so forth. When you’re finished modifying the headings, go ahead and click “publish” or “update” to save your changes.
Here are examples of what the different headings look like on FreeWordPressSetups.com:
