Here is an excerpt from a article that I found that look like its a reputable site covering the topic of the h1 tag.

 

 

This is what they said about the h1 tag...

 

Quoting them...

 

Headings carry a lot of weight with the search engines because they're for categorization, not cosmetics. You can control what each heading looks like consistently through your site using a CSS style sheet that specifies the font, size, color, and other attributes for each Heading tag. Here's an example of what various heading tags can look like:
 
<H1>This is a heading</H1>
<H2>This is subheading A</H2>
<H2>This is subheading B</H2>
<H3>This is a lower subheading</H3>
 
Search engines pay special attention to the words in your headings because they expect headings to include clues to the page’s main topics. You definitely want to include the page’s keywords inside Heading tags.

 

Is the above information true or false??

 

I really want to know.

False. H tags do not appear to carry weight with Google.

 

Also, please don't paste content from other sites here.

For search engines?? Not especially

 

For document structure and accessibility device rendering, Yes.

I wonder why that article posted that h1 tags where important. I am sometimes amazed at how people sometimes to be so wrong and off track about things.

:) I stopped being surprised at that about fifteen years ago.
