<h1> tag is empty

An observed issue is that the webpage has an h1 tag, however, it contains no actual text content.


Why is this important?

The h1 element is fundamentally significant for both user experience and search engine understanding, outlining the primary topic of the page content.

Lacking content within an h1 element misses a crucial chance to guide your audience and enhance SEO.


What does the Optimization check?

Loud Interactive’s audit will flag any internal page that incorporates an h1 tag, yet it lacks textual content.


Examples that trigger this Optimization

The following is an example of HTML code that will activate this Optimization due to the absence of content between the h1 tags:

<h1></h1>


Why is this Optimization marked 'Opportunity'?

At Loud Interactive, we classify this Optimization as an Opportunity, signifying a chance to refine the website which could lead to enhanced search engine visibility.


Although opinions vary on the extent to which the h1 element influences SEO rankings, optimizing it is generally seen as a sound strategy in most scenarios.
