"H2" has been mentioned in the forum and now it is in the guide. What is it?
This has to do with html. It is a heading signature. It is how one does with significance. Google is random on that. Be careful.
You guess is as good as mine. I googled it and nothing came up.
If you look at the top of the hub tool you'll see "paragraph". Under that you'll see H1, H2 and H3. These are different sizes of subheadings. I use H2 fairly often if I am writing a long capsule but want to section it off but keep the info within the same capsule. It's a great tool that saves a lot of headaches.
Thank you, everyone. This is very helpful.
There's definitely some smart ass people on here! (I mean that in a good way lol, not "smartasses")
This page might help:
Of course, "H2" might just mean half a glass of water.
It means Heading 2. You have Heading 1, which is like the main page title. H2 is a subtitle. When you are editing a capsule, you can highlight the text and turn it into H2, H3 or H4 by using the drop-down menu that says 'paragraph' by default.
The headings are picked up by Google, which is why we tell people to use meaningful subtitles.
H4 has been taken away from that dropdown and now the team is changing my H3s and making them H2s as they go around editing. I have complained to Robin about this before and she always asked for instances where they did this because they shouldn't. Two hubs last night and I emailed Robin and got an auto response that the email does not exist anymore.
I used headings to help orgainse stuff for readers and SEO too, and I've been losing out on my snippets after editors goof around with my headings. Changing it back does not get me my snippet, not immediately.
The hp staff are now using maven.io addresses. I am pretty sure the first part of the email address is the same.
I assumed this was the case, but @maven.io? I'll give it a try. I wonder why forwards were not set up.
EDIT: @maven.io and @themaven.net with the same first part failed. Was worth the try.
Sorry, you can't get in touch with Robin. That is odd. Question about using the H2: When I drop down the and pick H2, the whole capsule is formated H2. How do you H2 a single line or phrase? Is this possible?
Kenna, You need to highlight the text you want as H2 and then select H2 from the drop down selections.
H2 and H3 etc are for headings. So An entire line has to be a heading. If the line is a part of a paragraph the entire paragraph will be H2. Just create a line break (new line) and make your heading the heading.
Apparently, after you type the line you want headed, you have to go back and select Paragraph or whatever format you want.
Just today I received an email from email@example.com
If you send it to her you can ask that she forward it to Robin. I know that maven.io is correct but I am not sure if Robin changed the first part of her email address.
Robin's new email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi, theraggedge, your comment means seriousness here. Thanks for weighing in, and enjoy the weekend.
It's an HTML tag. When you create a webpage, it's converted behind the scenes into a Hyper Text Markup Language (HTML) text file. When you view a webpage, your browser downloads the HTML source file for the page and interprets it so that it knows how to position, colour and size the text, position photos etc. Webpage design packages will do the donkey work of generating HTML code, but it can also be written from scratch.
A H2 tag would be used like this in an HTML file:
<h2> Some text for a title </h2>
But HP is not doing anything with HTML on its site, okay?
I've noted your good recent comment on the issue, and I quite understand it. Thanks for this additional insight. You're always be welcomed.
Lauren, we're not permitted to post self-promotional links. You'd best delete it.
Edit: You also cannot promote your own sites in articles. If you thought that HubPages is a marketing site, then you need to know that it isn't. It's a site for writers.

In helping newbie members, I notice a lot of them using headings inappropriately. Instead of using the available hierarchy of heading formats, they tend to use the capsule heading for everything - photos, Amazon capsules, videos, paragraphs. When I suggest they need to use SUB headings,...

I've heard they slow traffic down although I have a few hubs with call outs that are doing well, so I'm not sure what to do. I hear some say they're fine and others that they are traffic killers. Would appreciate some advice from the staff, thank you.

I see we have the option to use Headings in the text. Are these more effective than Capsule subtitles? Instead of formatting these subheads as headings, is it more google-friendly to treat them as capsule subtitles?Thanks!
