    Hi,

    Thanks for the Graphene theme it’s really well built.

    My goal is to have complete controle on the H1 title on a page or post for SEO purpose. I ended-up having two h1 which are confusing for the search engine.

    What I did was to put this code in the custom CSS

    .post-title a, .post-title a:visited {

    display: none;

    }

    to hide it on page but it didn’t removed the H1 tagin the source code and my archive has lost the link to the article.

    The permalink has The H1 title tag by default.

    1- How can I remove the H1 title in the permalink? and

    2- How to have the good H1 title (see image) becoming the link title in the archive?

    I’m a little confused here. I can understand why you wouldn’t want two H1’s at the top of the page.

    And you’re right: display:none doesn’t eliminate an element; it just prevents it from displaying. But what’s wrong with using the permalink title as your H1 element and then using H2 elements in the rest of the article?

    Hi Mr.Odle,

    Most of the time when I write an article I like to have the main keyword on the url to give readers an idea of the topic but title on the article would be more informative and keyword rich.

    For Exemple, lets say I write an article about garderning. The url would be http://www.my-site.com/gardening and the main title(h1) of the article would be “How to choose the right gardening tools”.

    I hope this is making sense. Most of my html sites have this structure and it’s working pretty well with the search engines.

    I see. You can always use your permalinks to include your full title, which makes your URL keyword rich.

    The url and the title (headline) needs to be treated independently here’s why.

    The Gardening exemple

    I wrote a sales copy about Gardening to sell an ebook.(url http://www.my-site-.com/gardening).

    I go on the net to promote the page on diffrent blogs, forums, I write different articles on ezine articles and other article directories with links pointing toward http://www.my-site-.com/gardening.

    I look on the stats and sales are low. The first thing to do is to split test your headline (A/B test). We know that this a major factor to entice the client to read further.

    I don’t want to change the url because the page has links poiting toward the page and it brings good traffic but I have to change the headline and play with it. (changing words,colors, font etc.)

    This is crucial as a copywriter and marketer to have the flexibilty to do it.

    Does the permalink need to have a h1 tag ? Could it be possible to have a permalink with no tag at all?

    I think you can accomplish this with the standard WordPress functionality.

    If you tell WordPress to generate permalinks from your titles, then you actually have the opportunity to edit these links. And you can write whatever you want there (as long as you avoid spaces and other non-url-friendly characters.

    But you may need to open the panel for permalink editing. In the upper right corner of the editing window, there’s a button called “screen options”, it will open a panel, where you select what panels you want to have visible.

    Hi TobiF,

    My issue is to have the permalink to be tag as H1 and the fact that the link is showing on the page.

    I think there is a confusion between the url (permalink) and headline.

    The url is not necessary your headline.

    I give the h1 tag to a headline not to a url!?

    If I could change the permalink for H2 and not showing the link on the page but in the archive I would be happy.

    Thanks for your help!

    Sounds like you want to create a child theme and change the php so that the main title is formatted as H2 and you instead insert the permalink within h1-tags. And at the same time, you adjust it size in the css…

    I’m a little confused. Do you want the URL to be:

    http://www.my-site.com/gardening

    but the post title wrapped in <h1> to be:

    How to choose the right gardening tools

    If this is what you want, it’s fairly easy to achieve using standard WordPress functionality.
