    Hello Guys,

    We generally use H1 and H2 for the content and for H3 or H4 tags for the menu (sidebar) titles.

    Is it appropriate? What are your experiences and practices with this?

    Thanks in advance

    You can use the H2 for the sidebar as far as I know. That way google know, that your page is the master for the pages on your sidebar. Did not do it myself yet but gonna go for it soon after the relaunch of my page :)

    I use H2s on the sidebars. Doesn't seem to be a problem.

    @PROFRBcom for how long do you have it on your site now? And how do you feel about the result?

    8 or 10 years give or take.

    Many years ago I had some issue when our sidebar was on the left and Google was reading it as part of the data in articles. I'm honestly not sure why that technical glitch came into being. In fact, I even posted about the glitch here on AGD. When we swapped the sidebar to being right oriented issues went away. Not sure if it was something to do with our Drupal template, Google screwup, or what.

    All in all though, I don't think it is harming us in any way.

    Yes. Googlebot likes a good outline.
