totally confused iam not sure whether we can use more than one H1's and hyperlink for H1's?
Your views, suggestions, opnions, experiences are most welcome
My advice would be, use h1 tags for the main headline, ideally 1 per page, and then h2 tags for the smaller sub-headings.
As for using h1 tags for links, its probably best not to. As search engines like both h1 tags and links, too many in a particular page might be seen as spam or trying to trick the search engines into giving you high rankings.
You can easily use CSS to style the links to however you want them to look like, similialry with heading tags. Me personally wouldn't mix the tags up.
<h1><a href="somepage.php"><span style="font-size:x-large; "> a load of keywords</span></a></h1>
Something like that is not a good idea, on quite alot of levels.
The whole point of Header tags is to help the user easily read your content by breaking it up into sections, its setup to help structure the content and make it more clear for the reader and the bots.
When you're using these tags try to think of how newspaper columns use them, it is very clean, not overloaded and the placement makes sense. I think if you over do it with too many headers, your readers may get lost in the caos and you may have a problem with the SE's. :)
