H4 Header Count

The number of H4 Headers found on a page.

Typically, this should be limited to between 1 and 10 depending on the page and its content. There is no limit to the use of H4 Headers on a page other than the standard rules surrounding them.


Values Returned

The value we return for each URL is one of three, each detailed below:


This is a number from 0 to infinity (this excludes headers with errors)


No header tags are present on a page, the page cannot be accessed, or is not a HTML/Text page


When there are headers, but the tags are incorrectly implemented or broken


Examples of How H4 Header Tag Data is Used

There are various reasons why you would want to look at H4 header data, we have set out some examples below.


Example 1: Poor Usage

frequently on pages containing a lot of h4 headers we find that they are used for styling font rather than heading relevant sections of content. You can review the data we provide in our reports to make assessments to help identify pages you may need to review manually.


Example 2: Incorrect Usage

Raptor provides you with enough H4 Header data to review and assess whether a site has any of the following problems:

  • Incorrectly header structure
  • H4 headers used to style content
  • Content structure issues
  • Header hierarchy structure issues


What We Do & What We Give You

We aggregate the amount of <h4>example</h4> tags on a tag in a single number. These tags must be open and closed correctly.


Simple Example of How This Is Counted

In the example below, there is a total of 3 H4 headers:

  • <h1>first header</h1>
  • <h2>second header</h2>
  • <h3>third header</h3>
  • <h4>fourth header</h4>
  • <h4>fifth header</h4>
  • <h4>Sixth header</h4>

Using this data with other data you can see what percentage or ratio H4 headers are of the total headers on a page. In the example above, there are 6 headers and 3 are H4, meaning that 50% of the headers on this hypothetical page are H4 headers.
