What is heading tags?

According to me, Heading tags are a HTML based code of  text sizes for web scripts. Heading tags stars from H1 and ends to H6. These tags are text sizes as decreasing order. For understanding better see below:

Headings list

Write in HTML format:

<h1>TEXT OR CODE GOES HERE</h1>
<h2>TEXT OR CODE GOES HERE</h2>
<h3>TEXT OR CODE GOES HERE</h3>

Why heading tags are important for SEO?

When human reads something they give attention in bolded, highlighted and in extra large fonts. Search engines also read our contents something like this. If you decorate your blog with proper heading tags surely you will drive more traffic, because search engine will prefer your blog. Generally blogger templates are designed as H1 for main title, H2 for blog description, dates, widget titles and H3 for your blog post title. But I think H2 tag should be use in post title because post title is very important for a blog after main title. So it should be design as follows:
H1 tag for Main title
H2 tag for Blog post titles
