Jquery inside a left column and SEO

Hello,
I created a page with CSS Sculptor which has the following order

header
topnavigation
rightcolumn
leftcolumn
content
footer

I placed a jquery accordion in the left colum , but i noticed that its panels have h3 tag, so when i used Webstards Advisor i had an alert that the h3 tag shouldnt be the 1st header tag in a page.

I tryed to move the content div 1 or 2 levels upper , so h1,h2 to be seen before h3 ,but the whole layout was damaged :(

Any suggestions?

go back to your original layout, moving the div's around will not work.

a couple of points...

1. Although having h1 before h3 is advisable, (though even facebook and myspace have h2 lead with h2 tags) many other factors affect search engine rankings, such as title and content meta tags.

2. Why don't you try changing your jquery accordion css, so that the tags are h1 but are sizes as h3. the appearence will be the same, and it overcomes your problem.

That was really one of the 1st things that i tryed, but for some reason jquery accordion, (its header) is working only when its h3, in any other case the layout is messed up.Anyway is not a big deal search engines can see that the actual content div has normal headings with the right order :) Atleast google stated that.
