    so the theme i'm using ( avada) makes the post title in the page title bar an h1 and in the post content an h2. is this seo friendly or should i reverse them?

    Post title in wordpress is H1 which is good.
    As for H2, you should replace this. Make it paragraph/text.
    Your h1,h2,h3,h4 matters in the eyes of Google

    So when you create a post, are you saying there's an H1 tag at the top of the page (in the title) and then your other tags in the body content are H2-H6 (headers that you can set yourself)? If so, then that's fine and that's how I format my posts as well.

    actually what i was referring to is that when i create a post i have the post title displayed in an area just under the header called the "page title bar" in an h1, and also displayed before the post content in an h2. ( i can disable one or the other in my theme but i have them both enabled with the title hidden in the page title bar) so basically i have the post title in an h1 ( hidden) and also in an h2.
    is this fine? or should i disable the title in the page title bar and reverse the two tags so that the title before the content is an h1.

    i hope it's clear ;)

    That's how I have my posts set up and it's never caused me any problems. That example in my other post actually shows you how I use header tags, wich would look something like this:

    <h1>Computer Set Up (post title)</h1>


    <h2>Output</h2>
    <h3>Headphones</h3>
    <h3>Speakers</h3>

    <h2>Input</h2>
    <h3>Mouse</h3>

    <h3>Keyboard</h3>

    I use on home page page builder. And add h1 before post loop in static text block + some description. h2 good for post titles, but only if you have standard 8-10 posts, if much more, h3 will be better
