[Resolved] How i can reduce amount of H1 ?
Hi there, could you explain in a bit more detail what you mean by “too much H1 (more than 20)”? Once I understand better what the issue is I’ll be glad to see if I can help.
May be you have PRo version with mor functions?
Able is a free theme and there isn’t a “Pro” version.
There were to much h1 headings. Now i left 1 H1 on inner pages. For all titles i use H2 or H3.
But i don’t know how remove this: <nav role=”navigation” id=”nav-above” class=”site-navigation paging-navigation”>
<h1 class=”assistive-text”>Post navigation</h1>
This is on every page.
Can you link to a page where this is abnormal, i.e you don’t have 20 posts on 1 page?
Link in the first post. Main idea of blog to show foto. If i show 10 posts on one page – there are 10 titles of post:
<H1>: Post navigation
<H1>: Москва. Новое время.
<H1>: Выставка Москва глазами молодых 2013.
<H1>: Московский парк Коломенское.
<H1>: Зима в Коломне
<H1>: Поздняя весна в усадьбе М.Ю. Лермонтова
<H1>: Весна в Рязани
<H1>: Летний салон МСХ
<H1>: Мартовский день в Хотьково
<H1>: Набережная в Коктебеле
<H1>: 32 ежегодная молодежная выставка МСХ.
<H1>: Post navigation
I find all h1 classes in .php files and css, but i can’t remove this:<H1>: Post navigation. It is located in js small-menu. I’m just do my first steps, so it’s hard to me.
For diagnostics i use seoquake plugin.
Now, in sub level pages everythings look nice: http://www.bogatov-anton.ru/moskva-novoe-vremya/
Why in your opinion is having this many H1 elements wrong?
I find tis hint in a lot of places. When there are more than one h1 on the page it could be cause of pessimisation by seaching systems. Sorry for prob. spelling mistakes. But now i can try it in practice with this blog and after few updates i’ll know for shure.
I would suggest using another theme, something that’s a bit old and uses HTML4. That’s the easiest option you have.
Who told you search engines prefer HTML4 over HTML5 btw?
I tell about Titles (h1,h2,h3, etc). Search engines prefer not spammy sites (with 1 h1 title). Because there are a lot of sites that use H1 everywhere. And I have positive experience of wining in little seo wars using 1 h1
Okay, but if the diagnostics plugin was telling you this then you should get a second opinion.
No,no,no. Diagnostics tells me that on blog page (main page, there are 12 h1) and on sub pages there is only one(thats nice). So i need to leave only one (like highlander =)) on main blog page (may be only site title). Or there is antother decision: use another template, but this is working fast….
If you want to change those, you’ll need to create a child theme and then find where the h tags are output in the theme code – change those and also any corresponding CSS. It’s not a quick/easy fix.
WPyogi, now – yes! But in Russia we have Yandex. And this beast has his own taste)))
I have checked all .php and style.css too. Proble in java script. Bub there is antother problem – i don’t now js)))
Putting aside the issue of whether multiple h1 tags on a page have a negative effect on SEO – since this is a controversial issue and this isn’t an SEO forum 🙂 – the file you’d want to look at is content.php, lines 10-12:
<h1 class="entry-title"> <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>" rel="bookmark"><?php the_title(); ?></a> </h1>
As WPyogi said above, the best way to make changes to a theme is to use a child theme, so your tweaks won’t be overwritten when updating the theme. Here are some guides in case you haven’t made one before:
Let me know how it goes.
