The heading is simply like a title. In HTML, it is structured by using heading tags such as H1, H2, H3, and H4. Normally, as the heading number gets bigger, the font gets smaller.Tags are similar to, but more specific than, categories. The use of tags is completely optional.
Example: A well placed heading can be used to change the separate topics in a post and structure my work.
For those of you who don’t know what a tag is. A HTML tag is:
An HTML tag is a code that describes how a Web page is formatted. HTML tags are defined by the characters < and >.
The headings that we use in WordPress are HTML headings that separate content on your posts.
