Why Are Subheadings Useful?
Subheadings are useful for the reader because they give an indication of what the article is about. If my article has an ambiguous title, such as "putting it to bed", which could be mentioning printing a newspaper or planting seeds or finishing something off, then the subheadings can quickly show the reader what the article covers. Subheadings are also useful for the writer , because they give you a structure on which to base the article, so you cover all the points you want to focus on. Most importantly, subheadings are good for SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) because they help search engines, such as Google, to index your article and determine what it is about. Google would be less likely to know whether to put the "bed" article into "household goods", "publishing" or "gardening" categories without subheadings.

In HTML, you can create a subheading by using the <H2> </H2> command and placing your text between the two H2 commands, as <H2>This is a subtitle</H2> The first command STARTS the subtitle and the second ends it, otherwise everything youwrite would be a subheading. By the way, the H2 commands do not take effect in this article because you have to click on the <>symbol in the menu bar above in order to write HTML.
