<h1> length too long

The URL in question features an H1 header that extends beyond the advised word limit.

Why is this important?

An H1 tag is fundamentally crucial in guiding both users and search engines to understand the subject matter of a page.

If an H1 tag is overly wordy, it may fail to efficiently communicate the core message and is not considered to be optimized if it doesn't include the primary keywords targeted for the page while succinctly explaining the page's content.

What does the Optimization check?

Loud Interactive's Optimization will be activated for any internal URL that contains an H1 tag exceeding 10 words.

Note: the cutoff values for this Optimization can be adjusted within the global settings.

Examples that trigger this Optimization

Here is a scenario where the Optimization would be initiated: an H1 tag contains more than 10 words as:

<h1>Here's an overly lengthy H1 header example for a web page</h1>

Why is this Optimization marked 'Opportunity'?

At Loud Interactive, we categorize this Optimization as an Opportunity because it signals a chance to enhance the site for potentially increased search engine visibility.

While the ideal length of an H1 tag can vary based on necessary communication, this Optimization aims to pinpoint instances where brevity might be more beneficial. It offers a swift method to survey URLs with extensive H1 tags to identify and correct those that might inadvertently employ template text or remain unchanged.
