Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » Yoast counts multiple H1 headline but I don’t use title as headline

  • Resolved austrohack


    I don’t use the title as H1 headline in my theme, but Yoast tells me, that I use multiple H1 because I have an H1 in the text area.

    How can I tell YOAST that I don’t use the Title as H1 headline?

    Best regards

    Hi Andy,

    Yoast SEO expects the title of a post/page to be output in the source. We understand you are not displaying the page title as H1, but manually writing it. Is this correct? If so, then Yoast SEO will indeed show a false-positive warning regarding using multiple H1 tags.

    If that is the case, we suggest ignoring the warning from Yoast. Google will be able to scan the source code of your page and use what it finds for ranking.

    Please let us know if you have any more questions.

    Hi Marius,

    that’s exactly my problem.

    An update vom Yoast would be awesome, where I can choose, If I use the title as H1. This would be important for my customers, which are no SEO experts.
