Question on H1, H2 and H3 Header Tags

Hi SEOs,

I would like to know if I use only H1 and H2 header tags in the blog post and keeping H3 empty, will there be a problem in SEO?


Just think of it as per UX perspective. Sometimes it makes sense to have an h3 rather than all h2.
For example:
h1: How much water should I drink in a day?
h2: Water requirement of body
h3: Water requirement in summer, h3: Water requirement in winter.

Since h3 is a part of h2 it is better to answer it in h3 instead of making a separate subtopic out of it.

But in another scenario: 16 ways to clean your floor
Here you can keep all 16 steps in h2. In fact, keeping them in h2 gives you a better chance to win a snippet.

There is no definite answer to your question. It will depend from article to article. Think of it for users and not for google and it shall be fine.
Hope you got my point.


Thanks for the quick answer. I understand your examples.
