I've heard for SEO it's good to put your title as a H1 heading again in the article, usually after the intro. This makes for two H1 headings in your article (one as the actual title that is pre-done and another that is after the intro). I will always vary the second H1 so it's more specific and engaging than the actual H1 title.

Just curious if I should change the second one to an H2. I've seen reports that one time for H1 as the actual title is good, but other people say it's good to put your title as an H1 again throughout the article.

Thoughts?

Thanks,

Robbie

I've always learned from day one here to use only one H1 Title heading.

If you use a plugin like Yoast SEO, it will give you a warning if you use more than one HI heading.

H1 headings are for titles only all other title tags should be 2,3,4, or very rarely 5 and 6

So in Wordpress, the actual title tag is H1 (already pre-done). So that is the only H1 tag I need for the article?

I've been wondering this same question because some themes don't seem to actually display the post title when you open it. This could potentially really hurt SEO.

Thats right there is no need for another H1 tag

Thanks for clarifying. I was confused when reading that you should always put your title as an H1 tag somewhere in your article. I thought this was excluding the already pre-done H1 title tag since it's automatic and so I needed to put it again, but I guess some themes don't show the H1 title tag in the first place.
