Hey, how important would you say using keywords in H2/H3 tags is?
I use H1 tags in all of my articles, but I have a bad habit of forgetting to subcategorize my points into H2, H3, etc. Is it worth the time to go back and add them in all of my old Hubs, or should I just not worry about it and remember to utilize them going forward?
Thanks. You rock
I think it breaks up your article and by using keywords in h2 this may make it easier for someone to find the information they need from the subject you are writing. I would not worry about it because you do not want to make it seem like you are trying to fool the search engines.
Hey Skyler. I would say it is important to use H2 tags and maybe even some H3 tags, but not necessarily because of keywords (obviously we all know not to keyword-stuff).
The heading tags provide value in another way. Actually I wrote a hub about it awhile ago. (SEO Techniques: Heading Tags for HubPages or any Website) Basically though, heading tags are important for categorization purposes for both the human reader and the searchbot.
Have you ever seen the menu for Cheesecake Factory? It's huge - basically a book. Now imagine trying to find the turkey club sandwich (my favorite) within all those pages if there were not any headings (appetizers, hamburgers, pasta, sandwiches, etc.). Headings serve the same purpose for people looking at a website, and for search bots that need to index information.The hub will go into more detail if you're interested.
Whether or not you should go back and add them to older hubs is obviously up to you. But if you did not originally break the text up into separate capsules you still can add H2 tags by using the dropdown in the text capsule. Otherwise, the capsule subtitle is coded as H2.

It seems to me they are. You find out what's searched on the Internet and put it in the title of your article. But it seems to me, some of it is just logic; What will someone likely type into the search engine? No one is going to search for "how to pay attention instead of getting wrapped up...

Do you have to use the exact keyword or does it just have to be part of the title? Thanks.

When I do a search on google adwords for example on breastmilk, it brings up options with it written as two words "breast milk". Just wondering, will it make a big difference to SEO if two words are put together? Or should I always separate for optimum SEO? Or does it just not...

I just want to make sure I am doing it right. When choosing keywords I choose words that are low competition with a higher Global Monthly search and a good CPS like 50 cents or more. Am I doing it right?
