My average page has about five h2 and eight h3.
I want to create a table of content in the header, an unordered list containing the h2 and h3 linking to them below. Small font size, just a bit bigger than for paragraphs. Like Wikipedia articles <snip>.
The whole header will look like this:
A horizontal beautiful picture and next to it an eye-catching logo.
Below this a horizontal navigation, 6 to 10 items.
Below this the h1.
Below this the table of content.
My question now refers to usability and Panda: How many headings in the TOC and how styling them so that the user is not overcharged by the WHOLE header ("first impression"), rebouncing to Google? But as many as possible in order to inform and appeal the user?
My headings have about four to eight words, definitely more than at Wikipedia.
Imagine the Wikipedia article with more words in the headings, with a h1, a horizontal navi and two pice above them: Were 13 headings be too much for you? My users are mainly woman, 30 - 60 Years old.
