Good headings help readers in many ways

The purpose of a heading is to help communicate the content that is under the heading. Well-written headings in well-organized text help readers by

• getting them interested

• helping them get a quick overview of what is on the page

• setting the context for each section

• helping them make sense of what follows

• facilitating scanning so that they can find the section they need

• separating sections, putting a little space on the page

• making the information seem less dense and more readable
