Support » Theme: Maker » Remove tags from header

  • Resolved nicoter


    The theme violates very basic SEO rules, most importantly it creates two H1 tags on every page.

    Is there a clean way to remove the H1 tag from the blog name in the header?

    I’d prefer if the theme developer would fix this though.

    Hello, nicoter. There are many pros and cons on this. But it looks like _s went with displaying h1 on the front page and regular p tag on other pages. Before that, they used to use h1 on every page too and it was considered a community standard.

    I will investigate it deeply and might update Maker to keep it in sync with _s.

    Thank you for the feedback.

    Hi Dmitry,

    Thanks for clarifying.

    So that’s what happens when a bunch of designer with no SEO knowledge create a boilerplate theme for WordPress: Plenty of WP themes which lack basic SEO best practises.

    At least they came to reason 😉

    Regarding your investigation: I know somebody from Google once stated there can be multiple H1 tags on a page, in case it makes sense.
    I’d say having the blog title in H1 makes no sense because usually the post title simply is more relevant.

    Check any website in a competitive niche which has a professional SEO agency taking care of their onpage SEO and you won’t see two H1 tags. This alone tells everything.

    Best regards,

    Thank you for the follow-up. I’ll see what I can do.
