Insert H1 Tags In Joomla
However, it is semantically correct to have one H1 on your page, the W3C says so. That’s why I like them, and I surmise that if your page doesn’t upset other Google filters first, H1 tags are useful and may well carry some positive weight in terms of page relevance;
Note; It’s almost defacto standard now to have your home page linked via an image wrapped in a H1 tag. I don’t like this method, as it’s so generic and machine generated, and not really the way H1 is supposed to be used. This used to be an old school seo trick, but I’d wager as it’s so prevalent, Google will not thank you for it in 2008.
An H1 should accurately portray what’s on the page, and in my view, shouldn’t be exactly the same as your joomla page title tag. If you are going to use this method, remove the H1 in your image link back to your home page, as if you are following W3C recommendations, you should have only 1 H1 on any page.
Is there any benefit to creating H1 tags for page titles? I think yes, it’s worth it, but it depends on the site. If you’re already tripping Google filters because your site is spammy, then don’t bother :)
