Are duplicated H1 tags across a website bad for SEO? If yes, how can I fix this?
Lets say I have a website about food. The home page has <h1>Food</h1>, and that’s great. The other pages, however, have the following pattern:
Page 1: <h1>Sea Food</h1> <h2>Write my essay</h2>
Page 2: <h1>Sea Food</h1> <h2>Qualities</h2>
Page 3: <h1>Chinese Food</h1> <h2>Write my essay</h2>
Page 4: <h1>Chinese Food</h1> <h2>Qualities</h2>
As you can see, I’m keeping the h1 tag for each big section. For me, the type of food is important, but if I have multiple subsections with a dedicated page (overview, qualities, etc), the h1 tag will be repeated.
For what I’m reading, h1 should be unique. Am I missing something here? Is there another way to do this?
