Thread: Same <title> and <h1>

Hybrid View

  1. #1

    Same <title> and <h1>

    I just made some changes to my contest entry since I realized
    that I misused H1 tags on subpages. I simply did not gave enough attention to the anything else then frontpage...

    Basicly I had my site name wrapped in <h1> tags in header, so every subpages had it, with the post titles wrapped in <h2> tag

    However <title> was correct.

    What I did and what I think that is right you can read here

    However I am wondering, what are your experiences for the same <title> and <h1> tags.

    Thanks to all in one seo plugin for wordpress, it is easy to get them different or similar, but is anyone tried to make them exactly the same?

    I heard that google will maybe that consider spam, but that is natural thing to do.

    If you have post about Green Apples then it is natural something like this

    <title>Green Apples</title>

    and then later

    <h1>Green Apples</h1>

  2. I usually match the contents of my <title> and <h1> tags.

    I think that everything should be unique. If the title is "Net Builders", my h1 would be slightly different -- "People that build the net" or "Builders of the Net".

  4. I make a bit of veriety when possible but the same does not necessarily hurt anything either.

    I generally keep them the same, pages on my websites would be:

    <title>Name Of Article - WebsiteName.com</title>

    <h1>Name of article</h1>

    This is the structure that I prefer. It's natural. I wouldn't worry so much about Google...they are starting to realize the stupidity in some of their algorithms. The best thing to do is optimize your site for your visitors not the search engines.

    I honestly don't see a need for variance between the title and H1 tags. The only difference is that one includes your website name. That's the way it should be.

    I like to differ it, but only a little bit and still include the big keywords in both areas.

    For a website on the specifications of a 2007 Toyota yaris, I would make the title appealing enough for readers and make the <h1> less appealing to readers and more appealing to search engines. (But certainly not to a large degree)

    An example:

    <title>Specifications of The 2007 Toyota Yaris</title>

    <h1>What are the specifications of a 2007 Toyota Yaris?</h1>
    It has worked well for me. I don't believe it to be too much of a big issue, however.

    If is makes it sound more appealing for people searching google then yes

    Its no use having a high ranking if you have a really fugly title tag that people will not want to click on.

    There is no problem if you make your title and heading tag same.
