Heading hierarchy

Headings create a clear visual hierarchy, and heading sizes change moving between larger screens and smaller screens.

Use headings hierarchically H1 through H6. H1 represents the most important topic on the page and is exclusive to the page title. The sub-sections of a web page then use H2, H3, H4 level headings.

Using headings and making them visually apparent helps users with cognitive disabilities. Screen readers navigate a page according to its headings, listen to a list of all headings, and skip to a desired heading to begin reading at that point. Go to Basic web page structure for further details on how to use headings.
