    Hi Guys!

    I just had an SEO audit done and it came back with over 50 duplicate H1 tags, which for the life of me i cant figure out why!

    I can see them in the html –
    <h1 class=”main-title entry-title”></h1>
    <h1 class=”page-title”>Baby Boy</h1>

    but not sure why there is 2 of them. Can someone help please!!

    Also, there are a few pages i cant edit the Meta Descriptions & Title Tags – blog, blog 2 and some other archive pages. Does anyone know how to get into those to edit them?

    Thanks so much!

    Hey mellypenny!

    we recommend to work with Yoast SEO plugin.



    Hi Andy!

    I do use the Yoast plugin, but it doesn’t have anything to do with the duplicate H1 tags does it?




    Which page is this? I checked the home page but there is only 1 h1 tag there. I checked the blog and the post titles are set to h2 so I don’t think that’s the issue. A link to the actual page with the issue will help.



    Hi Ismael,

    The report says there is over 50 pages with duplicate H1 tags, ill put some below in the private content.
    It looks to be in the shop pages – categories and tags.

    Regarding the blog being set to H2, do you know how i can add a H1 to the blog page? That was another error in the report.



    where do you see 50 h1 tags? In your source code I can see that there is one page-title (h1) and one main-title (h1) and nothing more.



    Hey Andy!

    I meant 50 PAGES with duplicate H1 tags, not 50 on each page..

    So all the shop categories and tags have them.



    The other h1 tag is hidden on the breadcrumb or title container. Please add this in the functions.php file:

    add_filter('avf_title_args', 'avf_title_args_mod', 10, 2);
    function avf_title_args_mod($args, $id) {
        $header_settings = avia_header_setting();
        if($header_settings['header_title_bar'] == 'breadcrumbs_only')
        $args['html'] = "<div class='{class} title_container'><div class='container'>{additions}</div></div>";
        return $args;



    Thank you so much, that seems to have fixed it!! :-)

    Do you know how i could add H1 tags to the BLOG main page and page1, 2 ect?? Also edit meta description ect?



    You should not let crawlers to index the pagination. Here’s why:

    In the main blog overview page, try to use the Special Heading element. Make sure that the blog style is set to use the advance layout builder.

    Best regards,


    Hi Ismael!

    Thanks so much for the info.. I have fixed the H1 tags now for the blog, thankyou :-)

    I am not sure how to stop crawlers indexing the pagination though??..



    that would be a non theme related issue. Try a plugin like Yoast (SEO plugin).
