Just came from http://smallseotools.com/website-seo-score-checker...

The score is quite disappointing. Just 53, which is equivalent to Grade C. Maybe, because of some reds and warnings.

This is the second time I encountered an SEO analyst saying my site don't have any H1 tag.

"No H1 headings Found, it highly effects your page SEO."

In my understanding, a post title is automatically considered an H1. So, this problem might be because my theme is adding complicated codes instead of just simply putting title...

< h1>How To Make Honest Money Online &#8211; My #1 Recommended Training</h1>

It puts the title rather this way...

< h1 class="entry-title" itemprop="headline">How To Make Honest Money Online &#8211; My #1 Recommended Training</h1>

Any idea how do I convert this complicated code into a simple H1 code?

I mean, removing class="entry-title" itemprop="headline" .

Can anyone help me with this?

The code is correct the way it is. You don't want to change it entirely.

I've just checked one of your websites, coachgom.com and ran it a couple of times through the SEO checker link you've provided.

As for coachgom.com, all titles are H2 tags in the blog roll. This is based on how the theme (Omega) is coded.

When I click on a post title and get to the actual article, the title is in H1 tag.

I've also ran a check on the article you've mentioned above and it checks out with a green check mark that a H1 tag has been detected.

Check the images below.

Now if you want to have the blog roll titles also in a H1 tag, then some code change is needed.

It would be beneficial, yes, but it's "only" a blog roll and thus not relevant. This means it's a list of all posts published and this doesn't play much of a big roll in terms of rankings.

Your post's titles are all in H1 tag and this is relevant for SEO and ranking. This means you don't have to worry about the SEO factor for your post titles. Since they're in H1, they're SEO friendly.

Hope this clarifies and if you have any questions, let me know. :)
