    Hi, recently started using Blogolife for one of my blogs but found that this theme picks up more than one H1 tag. It uses both the one in the 'Site Title' and also the regular page/post Title as H1 so SEO tools showing i have 2 H1 tags which is bad for ranking.

    Anyone using this theme know how to solve the problem?

    Same on blogger. Didn't figure out how to solve this... Found few tutorials online, but none of them helped.

    There's nothing wrong with having your main site title (which should be your keyword) as an H1 title and additionally having your post title as an H1 tag as well. As long as you have a proper keyword density and some link juice you'll be just fine (plus Google loves blogs).

    However, if you want to remove it you can easily edit the files of the theme.

    The tag for the theme in the main template is <h1 id="site-title">. Change that to <span id="site-title"> and your H1 tag for the title is now gone. I wouldn't recommend taking off the post h1 tag because it might give you more than one H1 tag if you have multiple posts on the same page. However, it will only have one H1 tag if viewed as an individual post.
