Masthead <H1> Tags

Recommended Posts

Hi Pageliners, 

 

I would like to remove the H1 tags from Mastheads, but maintain the size of the title font. The reason for this is because I am using multiple mastheads per page and apparently it's bad SEO to have more than one H1 tag. Besides, I'd like to use those header tags in my content. 

 

Please let me know if you have any advice.

 

Thanks,

Kevin

This concept that more than one H1 tag on a page is somehow bad for SEO is one of those silly Internet myths that make absolutely no sense. 

 

Most serious developers know that top ranked pages often use multiple h1 tags to achieve pre-eminence in listing, so the opposite of the myth is the reality.   You're listening to disinformation, not real information. 

 

You shouldn't remove multiple H1 tage, but embrace them - hug them, give 'em a big kiss.  They can actually build the level of search engine success you have.

 

Now, one thing is true.  In numbers, h1 tags will confuse spiders about which is the most important content they hold.  But the search engines do not dismiss extra h1 tagged content. 

 

Go ahead and use the Mastehead half a dozen times and you may actually see SEO improvement.

      Good morning,
      I have set up my homepage using the Elements sections, a Masthead at the top and then a selection of Heroes lower down.
      I only just realised that the Heroes set a H1, as does the Masthead.
      Is there an easy way I can change the Heroes to an H2/H3 etc so as to improve the structure of my headers, whilst keeping the Masthead as H1?
      I really don't know much at all about CSS, which is why I use Pagelines because it's just so easy to create good looking pages without too much confusion.

      Does anyone know how to scale down the h1-h6 tags within the template section?
       
      I want to keep the native sizes in the header, fixed bar, and footer sections.

      Hey there,
       
      I use quite a few templates to handle the look and feel of many many pages on a site and then populate the templated pages with a wp-content loop. However a client has asked that I effectively place a DMS2 Masthead at the top of each page as they prefer the styling of the title & tagline to the standard in WP. Obviously I can't do this when using templates as the Masthead would just replicate over all the associated templated pages, so could you please tell me if it's possible to recreate the title and tagline styling of the Masthead using HTML rather than CSS in the text view of the wp-content editor? I did inspect the HTML/CSS but came up fruitless...
       
      Hope that makes some kind of sense, and please excuse my coding ignorance :)
       
      Best

      Hi! I want to link a button in the musthead så that when clicked it send the visitor to a lower position/place in the same page. It is clear how you can type a link in a button så that the person sends to another page, but how do you send them to a lower place in the same page?

      My Masthead text is not formatting to mobile devices. It was working fine last week and once I added the ShareBar section everything got a little off. At first I thought it was the width of the ShareBar that was causing the issue so I used a media query to resize the width and it works for the tablet size of 767px however my Masthead text is now askew and does not resize for the screen. I am using FitText.js to resize the headings (h1, h2, etc). Here is the media query that I am using for the ShareBar. For some reason I am 
       
      @media only screen and (max-width:767px) {  #sharebarui2dj1f .pl-sharebar { width:540px;     } }
