If that were the case, then one could hypothesize that Google would apply that to all heading tags.I think it's also due to so-called SEO experts overdoing use of the H1 tag to the point where Google at least now ignores it as a ranking factor.
Not in the default themes, no. Most forum software do not use them for some reason. You can always edit them into your theme files however.Thanks for The Information but I am confused in the matter of H1 And H2.I am using smf forum.Does SMF have H2 or H1 tages.please enlighten me more on this matter.
I'd take the seoMOZ guide over this 'study' any day of the week...except this is a list of opinions (as opposed to evidence), some of which are contradicted by the empirical study I linked to above.
Wrong, wrong, wrong. Take a look at this SERP: http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=eptopic+pregnancyKeywords in the file path don't seem to have a positive effect on the Google rankings of the analyzed web sites.
