The infamous BigCommerce H1 Tag issue – revisited

Using BigCommerce for Party bag Kids UK is great however there is one element which niggles me and others – namely the H1 issue that is dicussed here.

Basically BigCommerce generates nice H1 tags unless you have a image logo and then it disappears.

Others have suggested that this be fixed by chnage all H2′s to H1′s however this seems wrong as it is simply the H1 missing round the image.

as a result we modified the image logo fragment to deal with this and inserted the following:

<div id=”Logo”>
<a href=””><div id=”H1LogoText”><h1>Party Bag Kids UK – Kids party bags, Ideas &amp; fillers for children’s birthday party bags</h1></div>
<img src=”” border=”0″ id=”LogoImage” alt=”Party Bag Kids UK”/></a>

An addition to this we added a CSS rule to H1LogoText to set it to display:none

We now have H1 tags

Job done!

    Argh, post mangled the code, please delete the above.

    After hunting for the file i though i might reference it here for other people.

    You want to edit the Snippets/LogoImage.html

    All you need to do is the following.

    Just add the following within the anchor tag in that file.

    [h1] style=”display:none”>%%GLOBAL_StoreName%%[/h1]

    Replace square brackets with

    That will handle any store name changes, and there’s no need for unused markup, e.g. the div.

    Your also only do this when the logo is shown which will mean you will never show the H1 tag on the screen so to keep it simple just put the style inline.

    I do not know if this is the happiest solution. It will be duplicated H1 on each page. Google does not like. Better landing pages is to add H1 as a category, or to target the product name.
