search engines, <h1>-tags and HEADING_TITLE

Hello all,

 

there is one thing I would like to understand concernig heading titles, html-header-tags and search enginges:

I have been reading in the forums that search engines use the <h1> and <h2> tags when indexing a page (next to many other variables). In osC, the main header of the page is defined in the files in the language-folders in one of the first lines:

 

define ('HEADING_TITLE ....

 

Is this heading_title being "recognized" as a title by search engines and can substitute any <h1>-tags, so that on the rest of the page I work with <h2>-tags only? If not, should I define my page title with an <h1>-tag instead and just leave the define ('HEADING_TITLE... empty (it looks a bit strange if I have both a HEADING_TITLE title and a <h1>-title)?

Hope somebody can help me with this one,

Rose

I usually set the traditional HEADING_TITLE within H1 tags and use proper structure below. Of course, format with CSS to taste.

Thanks Bobby, that really was an easy one! Should have been able to figure that out myself :-" Somehow i didn't consider that i could put header-tags into the define('HEADING_TITLE...)-section.
