    A while ago I wrote a question about the product title appearing twice on a page, this got resolved by adding the following code to the Custom CSS

    #top.single-product .product_title.page-title {

    display: none;

    }

    Since the last update this has appeared again where the tile is twice on a page. I checked custom.css and the code is still there, I even refreshed it by re-adding it but still it is showing the two titles.

    Is there now another method I can try to remove these two characters? Why are they still there after updates? Firstly it is not very SEO friendly to have two duplicate titles on the same page – especially a product page where there will be little content. Secondly it looks strange and a bit of an eye-sore to visitors.

    Hi Vincent,

    Try adding the following CSS to your Quick CSS (located under the Styling Tab in the theme options) or the custom.css file in the css folder of your theme files:

    #top.single-product .product_title.entry-title {
    display: none;
    }

    As woocommerce changes the code and output for things changes too. That css will remove the title within the product summary.

    Actually, multiple h1 titles isn’t a big deal with SEO as long as they make sense within the code. In this case, one is within a main title container and another has the itemprop=name attached to it within the product summary.

    I personally like the multiple product name as users are generally very different and look for things in different places. What is plain as day to you or I may frustrate someone else. Eg, a user could very easily not associate the title at the top of the page with that of the product. They may think they are somewhere else in the site if the product titles isn’t boldly attached to the product summary.

    AB testing and general UX can yield some pretty interesting results and often times its better to err on the side of more information than too little simply because when purchasing a product people need their hand held.

    Regards,

    Thanks for your response Devin. I tried that and unfortunately it did not work.

    Okay let me then enlighten you in regards to multiple H1′s. Firstly I agree there is does not affect SEO too much, however a H tag is there to form a hierarchy that’s why we have these tags. Having a H1 tag twice for the same subject matter, same product, same phrase is improper.

    You personally may like having the exact same title twice on a page, your personal taste do not make it right. In actual fact having the same big title twice for such a small amount of product content makes it an eye sore and somewhat confusing for visitors.

    I agree with you that UX testing can yield some interesting points but also so can usability. We would rather get this right from the start, two identical titles on the same page both as H1 tags is not correct by any means and should not be promoted as such.

    I would dearly like to remove the extra tag as I had it before this update?Thanks

    Hi Devin, after clearing the cache I can see it working now – it is the similar to what I used before with a a couple of changes.

    Thanks
