    Alright maybe somebody can aware me

    For one of my sites I want to make the title post and h1 tag very similar. The title post may be longer, with more keywords but it will mostly be the same as the h1 tag.

    Problem is, wordpress shows both the title post and h1 tag in the posts. So it looks redundant/repetitive because both the title and h1 are almost the same. Like this

    http://test99.info/sunny-day/

    I want to have the title and h1 similar for obvious reasons, to best optimize my site. but it just doesnt look right.

    My question is, is there a way to disable the post title from showing up when you reading a post, while still keeping the /title tag in wordpress? not sure if that makes sense but thats what i wanna do

    this is how i want it to look, with the post tile not in the post:

    is it possible to do that while still keeping the title tag and not losing any seo optimization?

    The majority of wordpress themes use the h1 tag on titles.

    You don't need to put another h1 in. It's already the post title.

    that about About the Author thing shows up on every post, and Im gonna remove it. but im a little confusing right now. I changed the title, and now it says "sunny day today" http://test99.info/sunny-day/

    So youre saying that is the h1 today? I looked at the source code and it is....I never knew that...So that is the h1 and the title post and the title tag??? all three in one?

    If you're not using it now, you should pick up Firefox and the "Firebug" addon. If you're new, you will learn a lot about how things are setup on your site. There are plenty of tips through Google on these subjects.

    You can also right click your page, and view source. See this image:
