    Adding header tags without text in between. Best practice?


    Hi,

    I would like to know the best practice in employing the header tags for sub headings. Is it Okay to add header tags followed by lower level header tags without text in between? I mean like the below example:

    SEO benefits (H2):

    SEO for website (H3): followed by text

    SEO for users (H3): followed by text

    Here there is no content in between H2 and H3 tags....Is that Okay? Or those sub headings under H2 must be just bold? I'm concerned as we have multiple pages to go on with similar structure of content?

    Thanks

    It looks spammy, you know why? Because there is no similarity.

    You are talking about SEO Benefits and what is meant by SEO for Website and SEO for Users in the term of SEO benefits.
    The second thing you want to use the SEO Benefits as H2 and under this SEO for Website and SEO for Users as H3 so it without any content under the heading because you link those headings to another page.

    According to me you are using it in this way but do not use subheadings under the H2 tag if you are not interested to write content under the headings.

    SEO Benefits (H2)
    SEO for Websites (linked to another page but do not use it as sub-heading)
    SEO for Users (same)

    Other content with subheading here

    Now, it will look somewhat nice
