Multiple h1 tags: Good or Bad
Sometimes a site’s template has multiple h1 tags and the most common question I get asked is, Is this a problem?
Also, in some cases h1 element is commonly used to mark up a heading on a page, there’s something to be said for having a single clear topic of a page.
So how critical is it to have just one H1 tag on a page?
The answer is short and easy. It’s not a problem.
With HTML5, it’s common to have separate and multiple h1 tag elements for different parts of the page. If you use html5 template, there’s a chance your pages will correctly use multiple h1 headings automatically.
How about multiple h1 tags on a template that is not based on HTML5?
Regardless of whether you use HTML5 or not, having multiple h1 tags elements on a page is fine however semantically marking up your pages content to let search engines know how it fits together is always a good idea.
If you end up using multiple headings on a page. It’s just fine.
