When a text box is selected you'll find the option to change the Text Tag under the Text Properties section. This setting is automatically applied in conjunction with the text style you set when adding the text box (or when the designer added it.) See below for how these are automatically applied.


Why Should I Care About This Setting?


Search engines like Google use these headings to index the structure and content of your web pages. This helps search engines better understand the information found within your site.

How Should They Each Be Used?


  • div – Text design elements

  • h1 –  Heading 1 - Page titles

  • h2 – Heading 2 - Canvas or blog titles

  • h3 – Heading 3 - Any other relevant sub-heading titles

  • nav – Navigation links

  • p – Standard paragraph text

Note: <h1> headings should be used for main headings, followed by <h2> headings, then the less important <h3>, and so on.

How Showit Automatically Applies Text Tags


When you add a text box to Showit, it will automatically have a Text Tag applied to it based upon which style you choose when you add the text box.

  • Title = h1

  • Heading = h2

  • Subheading = h3

  • Paragraph = p
