First off I must admit I do not follow much anymore, but after redesigning an older site this came to mind regarding header tags...

typical page scenario with widgets... I use one h1 tag towards the top of the page for the 'title' of the widget. Below this I list the widgets features with those features being divided into categories with an h2 title. There might be five or more h2 tags because there are many categories of features for a particular widget.

Is there anything wrong with this? I remember watching a video by Cutts stating you should not have your page cluttered with h1, duh, but since h2 carries some weight is there something wrong with having lots of h2's? One would think this is the natural heirarchy.

Basically, you shouldn't have an h3 without an h2 above it and an h1 above that.Just arbritrarily using heading tags is incorrect. It's a HEADING of a logical SECTION or sub-section.

Try to stick to 1 h1 tag where possible.You can have multiple h2 tags if you have multiple subheadings for your h1 content.

Agree with the single H1, then can have multiple H2 tags under that. Then you can have H3's under a H2, H4's under a H3, etc up to H6. I think H6 as far as it goes.
