One Page, One H1 Header – SEO Tips

Image of a Yoast tugboat with H1 and H2 tag symbols on the deck and the name of the boat reads "SS Content"Yoast, a search engine optimization (SEO) software we use on some of the websites we develop, helps assess and improve a page’s SEO. If you’re not familiar, on-site search engine optimization is the baseline digital tactic your website needs to be searched and found on Google and other search engines.

Yoast publishes a blog that covers a range of topics. Recently they posted an interesting article about the use of the H1 or heading tag. Interestingly, the article discusses only using one heading tag per post or page. This seems obvious: one page, one H1 header. However, I trust the Yoast team to know that it does happen… website managers use multiple header tags on one page.

That’s like having two titles to a book or movie. Not a title and subtitle (which would be a H2 header), but rather two titles. H2 and H3 headers are great ways to organize and separate webpage content into sections or subjects.

Bottomline: no matter how important two subjects seem for a webpage, make them H2 headers to organize sections of the page and make a single H1 header title for the page that captures the overall structure.
