Add Heading Tags to Outline Your Content

Similar to how this page has been Outlined…

NOTE: The Title shown above “Step by Step – Posting Instructions for JohnEEngle.com” (along with and any other Post or Page on this site) is already using the h1 Header tag. Search Engines Do Not want to see more than (1) h1 tag per page (article).

To ADD Heading tags to create an Outline for your content, type what the heading should be for your paragraph, then highlight and click on the Paragraph drop-down menu as shown in the image below. Click on the Heading tags that best suits needs. An h3 Heading tag will act as the sub-section for the h2 tag and so on (See the screenshot below).

NOTE: You WILL NOT be able to add any images to this site. By default WordPress doesn’t allow a ‘Contributor’ to upload images to the database, so you will need to respond to one of my reply emails to you and send me the image(s) that you would like in your Post and some basic instructions to where you want them placed, and I will add them for you.

Once I have added the images that you want in your article, I will contact you to let you know when I plan on Publishing your article.

I look forward to seeing your article on my site.
