    I have noticed that the heading tags in the code of my pages are all tagged with H2 tags for each capsule.

    Is there a way that each capsule heading could have different heading attributes, such as H2 - H3 - H4 be added?

    I could see an immediate seo benefit and if I am wrong I stand to be corrected.

    My second point would be attributing an alt tag to our images where we can use the keyword for our images for more seo benefits.

    I am sure this could be a simple fix and wonder what other's may think.

    TerryGI, you can use different attributes but only if you don't write in the capsule subtitle, it is by default H2.  If you write in the box, highlight the word, click on the format drop down menu, you will have options like paragraph, H2, H3, H4 and preformatted.

    You can also control the alt tag to the image via the caption segment.

    I hope that helps!!

      Sure does help. Thanks for that, I might re-do a few of my hubs.

      Yes that is a good page. It details what I was trying to do with onpage optimisation. What I had been doing is titling each capsule, hence the H2 tag for each capsule heading being repeated through the code.

      I followed enlightenedsoul's tip and removed the capsule heading and started the text area with the H2/3 tag I was looking for.

      I will now see if this makes any real difference to indexing positions etc as I am heavily into onpage optimising my blog and have seen huge results. I thought the same might apply to a hubpage.

    I would have a hard time reading a hub that had an H4 font heading in the middle or even an H3 smile

    I was under the impression that captions on images did get trolled by Google.

    TerryGI, on-page optimization will really help a long way.  Infact there are many hubbers who rarely promote their hub and are still earning a very decent income all because of on-page optimization.  Sunforged have also experimented and found his earnings increased due to on-page optimization.  By all means, go for it.

    Personally, I would just stick with h1 and h2, after the first h2 every subsequent instance will be further down the page and will be deemed less relevant anyway. From a HP perspective h2's are, I feel, much more effective from a typographical point of view than h3's etc.

    Uninvited Writer makes good points above.
