    Hi guys,

    This is whats up.. I got the Emporium theme by Templatic. Its a shipping cart, but I cant see how I can add H1 tag for the homepage. If anyone knows a plugin that will use the site title/tagline as H1 or any other White Hat way pls share.

    Help greatly appreciated

    Thanks,
    Crowly

    You could edit the theme, or just get another one. But I wouldn't worry too much about specifically using an h1 tag.

    Why do you say that ? Inquiring minds want to know.

    Terrible advice. Use an H1 tag, just hand code it somewhere into the theme. Something like:
    HTML:
    <h1><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></h1>
    Super easy to do. NEVER IGNORE YOUR H1 TAGS... Jeesh.

    Trying to find an answer for my friend, I came across this info describing how to avoid having to play around with hiding your h1 tag by simply turning our website logo/header into the h1 tag.

    Using this html:

    Code:
    <h1>
      <a href="yourwebsite address">
        <img src="logo.png" alt="Website Title" />
      </a>
    </h1>
    Reference:

    www dot youtube dot com/user/GoogleWebmasterHelp#p/search/0/fBLvn_WkDJ4

    The video practically says that since the html above is structured html, google sees it as a legitimate way to place an h1 tag which it will read while shoing your visitors a nice logo. Whitehat seo which achieves the same results as other blackhat methods.

    Alright, anybody have an idea how to where to add h1 and alt description...

    <?php } else { ?>
    <a href="<?php echo get_option('home'); ?>/"><img src="<?php if ( get_option('ptthemes_logo_url') <> "" ) { echo get_option('ptthemes_logo_url'); } else { echo get_bloginfo('template_directory').'/images/logo.png'; } ?>" alt="<?php bloginfo('name'); ?>" class="logo" /></a>
    <?php } ?>
    </div> <!-- h_left #end-->

    You already have the alt description in there, so all you need to do is wrap it in the h1 tags:

    Code:
    <?php } else { ?>
    <h1>
    <a href="<?php echo get_option('home'); ?>/"><img src="<?php if ( get_option('ptthemes_logo_url') <> "" ) { echo get_option('ptthemes_logo_url'); } else { echo get_bloginfo('template_directory').'/images/logo.png'; } ?>" alt="<?php bloginfo('name'); ?>" class="logo" /></a> 
    </h1>
    <?php } ?>
    </div> <!-- h_left #end-->
