    I just realized that my theme might be creating two H1 tags which could be hurting my SEO.
    Here are the H1 codes I see on the page when i inspect source:

    <h1 class="entry-title">My Page Title</h1>
    <h1 style="text-align: center;">My Wordpress H1 I Made</h1>

    I only know a little of HTML, does this mean I have two H1's as it looks like then?

    Sorry if this a dumb question, I just wanted to double check before i chop up all of my H1's.

    Thanks

    Not a dumb question... Google doesn't care if you have multiple h1 tags. Bing does. So it is a pretty minor issue overall. You might get a few more clicks out of bing if you fix it.

    It is a really common issue... if you can just change the second one to an h2.
