    It depends on the theme. Some change the title to a H2 tag. You can change that in the code though.

    As already mentioned. It entirely depend on the theme.

    The first thing you always need to do is to check your theme. You can modify them, but a lot of them are really bad in relation to SEO.

    I'm using H1 on my post title, but change the size using CSS. H2 on my post content, change the size using CSS also :)

    If you right click on your page and go to "view source" you will see what google sees. if there is an H1 tag around your title, then yeah, it's already there.

    Can anyone please share how to make the changes. My theme does not support H1 but I want to stick to this theme and make my titles as H1.

    In the Thesis theme your tagline is your H1. Tagline is in the general area.

    Do this:

    1. Open up the index.php file of your theme
    2. Look for this: <?php the_title(); ?>
    3. See if this function is wrapped in h1 or not.

    If not, change it to h1.

    You're done!

    You also want to check the page.php and post.php. Index.php is usually just the home page section where it shows the posts.

    Doesn't the SEOpressor plugin give you the ability to add H1 tags with a drop-down or am I mistaken?

    It does not. I believe there's a checkbox or something to let SEOpressor know that you are using H1 tags.

    If you do change it to an H1 tag in the php files make sure you take a look at the titles. You may need to go into the css file and change the font size.

    From my experience it counts as an H1 tag

    Or the easiest way....Go to post then highlight the title and then click on the "paragraph" tab on the menu bar. This will bring you drop-down menu. "Heading 1" is for H1, "Heading 2" is for H2 and "Heading 3" is for H3. Of course you can change the sizes by clicking the "font size" tab. I hope this answer you question.

    You will still need to check the theme. Not all themes are set to add the correct heading to the relevant heading menu
