How would I go about removing the page titles (h1) such as Home, Blog, etc? I don’t want to use the “display:none” option because carries some negative ramifications with SEO. What can I do? Thanks!
Google doesn’t mind if you hide content ( https://developers.google.com/webmasters/smartphone-sites/details ) “As it is not immediately apparent in this setup that the site alters the HTML for mobile user agents (the mobile content is “hidden”), we recommend that the server send a hint to request that Googlebot-Mobile should crawl the page”. All else is hot air in my opinion.
However, we can either use jquery to hide it, or rip it out by the root out of the code. Here is a list of every single instance of h1 in the theme along with the page name and location ( http://i.imgur.com/4E3he.png ). if you open each of the 14 templates (some templates have two h1 tags and are marked in yellow, depending on how the template is used) and search for h1 you will find it, and simply remove it, or change it to <h5> or change it to <p> or <div class =’some-class-name-you-invent-or-retain-current-class”. If you want it complete gone, then delete. (just make sure you have a backup, and after each page refresh the website, to make sure a mistake wasn’t made.
