What is H1?

An HTML tag is used to identify the highest level of information on a page. In practice, page titles and headlines are usually marked with H1 tags, the most significant text on a page. H1 tags can be associated with specific CSS styles or formatting in a web page so that headlines always appear in a particular font, color, and size. H1s are essential in search engine optimization (SEO) and make it easier to index content. Search engines know it is essential if something is in an H1 tag.
