|NBSP in H1 heading|
about H1 heading tag

Just wanted to is it a good idea to put nbsp; in H1? Which is better
<h1>New York</h1> or <h1>New York</h1> according to search engine will it really effect the ranking?

Why would you choose to even use an nbsp;?

I don't think it would affect ranking. Try throwing both through the W3C's validator tool and let us know what happens.

No need to. It's a character entity and represents a non-breaking space. There would be no need to have that there in most instances but...
If there are two asp variables back to back, a nbsp; is required to "add the space".
I've seen people misuse it in a scenario to prevent wrapping of two words on one line. I believe using nowrap via CSS is the best method.
This entity is also generated frequenly by WYSIWYG Editors and I see it come into place when you have more than one space back to back. Some designers use it to force space, yikes!
