Adding the H tags is as simple as inserting the following code into an HTML box on the page: Your title goes hereThis code goes in the body of the page and is inserted into a standard html box and positioned on the page in the location you wish for it to appear. To add the html box, click Insert > More > HTML. If you need step by step instructions for adding code to the body click here.

In many cases you will want to edit the font size,style or color. To do this you'll need to enter some CSS code in the head section for that particular page. You can use the script below. To change the size replace the "22" with your desired font size and to change the style, replace the "times" with the font of your choice, ie. Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif, etc. If you wish to change the color, this page is an excellent source for finding your desired hex value for your color choice.
H1 {font-size:22px;font-family: times;color: #000080       }


To access the head section, click Page Settings > Advanced Settings, and then paste the code in the head section like shown in this image. If you need help adding the CSS code to the head section of the page click here

If you intend to use H2-H6 tags you will generally use progressively smaller fonts so that search engines understand the H1 content is the most important content on the page, ie.

h2 { font-size: 22px;}
h3 { font-size: 18px;}
h4 { font-size: 16px;}
h5 { font-size: 12px;}
h6 { font-size: 10px;}

I have been told that my website lacks H tags and that it could be hurting my ranking with search engines.  I do not know anything about H tags!  Using Sitebuilder (desktop version), how do I add H tags, and if they need to be positioned near the top of the source code, how do I do that?  Does Homestead have a tutorial that would tell me everything I need to know about using H tags?

Any help would be appreciated!

Does it matter where it appears in the body of the source code (does it need to be near the top for the search engines to find it)?

It should be placed wherever is appropriate for the content. Usually an h1 will be a title of sorts with regularly formatted, related content below it. Remember not to overuse h tags. That can cause problems too.

So I added  <h1>This is heading 1</h1> to every page but it came out as a huge ugly title, I just want this for the seo benefits. Would it help if I made the text white so no one can see it?

Hello Danni

Actually, adding tags but hiding them is frowned upon by Google, so it would actually be detrimental to your site's SEO. You would get penalized for that.

It is going to default to our programs default H1 font and color and size, unless otherwise specified. So, if you don't like how it appears, you would need to create code that tells the builder what color, font and size to use. This isn't something Homestead could provide, so you would need to find a program or a professional that can generate that code for you.

Correct, you should not hide it. Placing stuff on your site just for the SEO benefit, but hiding it, will negatively affect your site. I would recommend just doing the H1 tags the proper way, hiring a professional, or not doing them at all.
