    Hrm seopressor says my posts don't have h1 and h2 tags. I thought Wordpress did this automatically. Do i need to manually do it?

    Yes you do...Most likely the idiot web developer didnt include H1 or H2 tags in your template because they know web design or development inside out but dont understand a single thing about SEO. Just like sales people and marketers i guess..........or possibly its because you need to publish your post for SEOpressor to pick it up.

    Go to your dashboard >> go to appearance >> then to editor >> then go to them template you are working on...

    If its your home page, go to main index template.
    If its an inside page, go to page.php or something.
    If its a post, go to single_post or something.

    Then try and find the line that says something like get_title and see if its wrapped in h1 tags, if not, change it.

    There you go....

    As i said, there is probably two causes, SEOpressor is lying and you just need to publish your page or post first for SEOP to update it or the developer of your template needs to take a good hard look at him or herself.

    Hope this helps ;)

    Go to one of your pages and view the source code. Search for <h1 and </h1 (don't use the closing > - in case the html has 'in-line' CSS like <h1 style=....) and then <h2 etc.

    If you find them, then you have them. If you don't - then you need to modify the WP theme code as websitezbuilder said above...

    But when you add h1 tag you also can modify text size and another details. Am I right?

    You can do what you like if you understand PHP, HTML & CSS... But you don't seem to be at that level...

    You;re probably referring to inline CSS - like I stated above. Just google 'CSS' & W3Schools and read some tutorials, but basically:

    <h1>Insert Title Here</h1>

    ...is the main header tag

    Changing it to:

    <h1 style="background-color:#000000; border: 1px solid #FFFFFF; color:#FF0000; font-size:32px;">Insert Title Here</h1>

    ...adds inline CSS style changes. The above would have a black background, white border, text would be red and it would be 32px high.

    But go find a proper CSS tutorial....
