As is popularly known it is best to have just one H1 per page and this is meant to be the title.
Unfortunately, this is not the case and there is a second H1 at least on Dengarden. The second H1 is "Related Articles"
Having two H1s is bad enough. Having the same H1 (this second one) across multiple pages is worse.
Could someone on the team please fix this as a high-priority issue? It should be a super-fast fix.
We are looking into this issue. Thanks for reporting.
Wait a sec. Does that mean that I need to go back and check/fix my headings in my older articles? Asking for a friend ;-)
Just posting to say I agree. H1 has a specific meaning online, more like "Title" in a document --should be used accordingly as it has implications for search
Two days later and there has been no response here by HP staff. At least an acknowledgement that the post was read and they are aware of it, or something. With all the silliness in this forum of late, when a major issue is brought up it gets ignored.
Exactly. I wonder if an email needs to be written.
In my experience Brandon an email can work wonders.
That's probably smart, but these forms are supposed to be a place to report issues. Hope somebody responds to you.
Multiple H1 headings seems to be a controversial topic.
Just came across this:
You should keep in mind that this is Google and Google is smart enough to figure this out. There are other search engines out there. But algorithms are not always the best and there is still a lot of weight given to headings. So it is still a best practice not to have more than one.
What is acceptable is not the same as what is a best practice.
We've changed the 'Related Articles' title to bold paragraph text as a temporary fix until we are able to completely remove the H1 tag. This temporary fix should satisfy Google until the permanent fix rolls out.
I see the bold, but the H1 is still present as you say, I wonder if that really makes a difference, but hopefully, a real permanent fix can be made. Thanks for the update.
I just checked using an external service in case I had cache issues https://www.seoreviewtools.com/html-headings-checker/
Matt, Making the H1 tag bold for the 'Related Articles' title does not make it any better. Google bots still see two H1 tags and having the same title 'Related Articles' for all hubs on the niche sites must confuse Google algorithms.
A simple solution is to change the 'Related Articles' subtitle to a DIV instead of H1. You can still control the style without confusing Google with two titles.
Hope this is helpful.

Since I migrated here from Squidoo two months ago, I've seen a steady stream of threads in this forum, complaining about lost page views. There are a lot of theories about why it's happening, and how much it's happening, and what can be done to get into Google's good graces.Google is not my #1...

So, yesterday, I got an email saying one of my articles had been edited: a recipe that's been posted since 2017. I'm not sure it really needed editing, since most of what was done was superficial. I checked it over, hated about half of the changes, and edited the article to correct some of the...
