We have a dev team building us a big site on Webflow, and we’ve found during QA that they have not set global H1-H6 with any style classes. Meaning, they have a bunch of different classes that are used to style various parts of text on the pages, but none of them are connected to H1-H6.
My understanding that the best approach is to style H1-H6 so that, by default, our H1 will be the largest text on the page, the H2 will be subtitles, and so on. I am not a developer, but my understanding is that this is the most common practice and is best for SEO.
I asked the dev team about this, and they said that it actually gives us more SEO flexibility being able to assign H1-H6 to any text element on the pages. On one hand, I get that. On the other, I am worried it will hurt our SEO performance to assign H1/H2/H3 (especially) to whatever elements we think will work best for SEO.
Has anyone else encountered devs that prefer to do this? Should I be worried?
Thanks so much!
