How many H1 tags are suggested for a single page?


Recommended Posts


For a long time it was considered one of the cardinal rules of HTML and SEO that each individual page of a site should have one <h1> level heading, and one only. Additionally, the rule prescribed that this singular <h1> heading should denote the primary subject matter of the page.

This rule was generally followed with the goal of helping search engines better understand the primary subject matter of each page, so they could determine their relevance to various search phrases, improve search engine accuracy and hence improve rankings for well-crafted sites.

With the advent of HTML 5 the answer to this question has significantly changed in both SEO and technical regards. It's now not only possible to have multiple <h1> level headings per webpage that will make sense to search engines, but in most cases it's actually the recommended course.
