    Hi,

    I had a question about multiple <h1> tags being on my pages, which Devin answered for me saying that the next update will address that. However, it seems that issue persists through a number of seo tag fundamentals. I know nothing about the technical stuff (that’s why I purchased propulsion, ofcourse), so I can’t fix alt tags in images, h2 tags that are missing, multiple h1 tags etc. It seems the theme has a major update pending with regard to the tag tag tag issues. Maybe some simple columns to edit tags in a visual fashion would help the pure laymen as myself.

    Please consider the above for the really needed update. Thanks in advance.

    Hi Khoel,

    Using something like Yoast SEO will get you 90% of the way there for good SEO. The multiple h1 thing is really not that big of a deal for the most part. As long as heading tags are broken up inside other content, the code is read as such. Headings are headings, they can be at the start of the page wrapping the logo as the most important element (the page title) then within the various sections they can label the title of posts which are again, the most important header of that section.

    Same thing from google here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GIn5qJKU8VM

    Thanks Devin,

    I do use Yoast SEO…..but I guess it wouldn’t hurt to try to get as much right as possible….especially knowing the swift propagation of strictness that search engines use to make their selections. Using Yoast on my images within the media section doesn’t seem to work after I click on the publish button.

    I can’t say what might be happening with the images and Yoast, but you can try editing the images settings in the wordpress Media section where you can expand and modify images data in the database.

    …I feel my question is being missed here: my images are missing the alt tags and my pages have multiple h1 tags whereas some dont have h2 tags….tags, tags, and tags. And I just stated in my deviated statement: ”Maybe some simple columns to edit tags in a visual fashion would help the pure laymen as myself.

    Please consider the above for the really needed update. Thanks in advance.”

    can it help at least with the image alt tags to add this code to my theme (propulsion) functions.php?

    /** Auto-Generate ALT tag for images */

    function image_alt_tag($content)

    {global $post;preg_match_all(‘//’, $content, $images);

    if(!is_null($images)) {foreach($images[1] as $index => $value)

    {if(!preg_match(‘/alt=/’, $value)){

    $new_img = str_replace(‘<img’, ‘<img alt=”‘.get_the_title().'”‘, $images[0][$index]);

    $content = str_replace($images[0][$index], $new_img, $content);}}}

    return $content;

    }

    add_filter(‘the_content’, ‘image_alt_tag’, 99999);

    Hi,

    No it won’t.

    You can just manually edit the alternative text on Media > Library, select an image and input the alt text on “Alternative Text” field. You can also do this when uploading images on posts or pages.

    …..did that, yet bing seo analysis couldn’t find the text I placed in the “Alternative Text” field.

    Thank you Ismael.

    The basic coding that Kriesi believes works for SEO has been implemented, if anyone has better or other ideas the structure/tags/code can be changed to suit whatever current trick anyone wants to try. Full options to control all tags and headers will most likely never be implemented.

    As for the alt tags, it looks like images already added into posts wont automatically get new alt tags like they used to. Go to your image in the visual editor and select the image editor popup. Then enter in the title and alt tag you want for the image.

    The whole SEO industry is rife with guesswork. No one knows what Bing or Google user for their crawlers and how they measure+produce results. We use best practices and create solid content to reach users and that is the best thing you can do.
