Hello,
I have a site where the first sentence below my title logo contains a couple of keywords. The first sentence is a <h1> heading. I did have the heading styled to be bold and italic, but recently took out the css and put the <b> and <i> tags around the text in the heading. Ive heard the bold and italic text are nearly as important as headings.
My question is - is it a good idea to combine all of these - heading,italic and bold text - on the first sentence? I worry that it will either be seen as spamming or it wont be useful unless each of these tags surrounds different sets of text.
Suggestions?

Are you saying that you have an entire paragraph wrapped in an

<h>
element? If so, you may be utilizing the tag incorrectly.

Heading Tags

At least one heading tag <h1> should appear at the top of your page and be well written using prime keywords and keyword phrases.

You can use CSS to control the appearance of the heading tags. I prefer using external style sheets (file.css).

Make sure your Heading Tags are relevant to the content on the page.

I did have the heading styled to be bold and italic, but recently took out the css and put the <b> and <i> tags around the text in the heading. I've heard the bold and italic text are nearly as important as headings.

The

<h>
elements by default are bold. Adding a
<b>
within the
<h>
tag is not proper coding and I doubt very seriously that it has any additional effect on relevancy.

My question - is it a good idea to combine all of these - heading, italic and bold text - on the first sentence?

On the first sentence? No. Where applicable? Yes.
