A heading tag denotes a section heading. Heading tags are important because they're going to provide a frame of reference to Google, and help it really understand the topic that you're trying to rank for. In the case of local SEO, the Heading 1 tag is a fantastic place to input your keyword and local modifier, if it makes sense to your user.
