WEB1007 - The <h1> tag contents are too short

Expression Studio 4.0

If an <h1> tag is empty, search engines may consider it to have no relevance.

Explanation

Every page should include a single <h1> tag. The text of the <h1> tag of each page should be different from the text of <h1> tags of the other pages in the site. Headings should accurately summarize and describe the content that follows them.

Details

In sematic web design, headings provide important organizational and summary information. Each page should have a single <h1> tag that summarizes the content of the page. If the content of the <h1> tag is too short, search engines may consider the <h1> tag to be irrelevant.

If the page contains a significant amount of text, it should be organized with <h2> through <h6> subheadings that summarize and categorize the text that they precede. Search engines rely on correctly used headings to determine the organization and content of a site.
