missing h1 tag RRS feed

  • Question

  • User2027189257 posted
    When crawling a few of my sites I notice the toolkit keeps grabbing the url's of images on my sites and spitting out an error that states that they do not contain a H1 tag? So basically it seems to be seeing my images as pages and retuning markup errors. I generally just ignore it but it is slightly annoying when i'm trying to find and fix valid errors. Am I missing something or is there something I can do to solve this?

    How are the images specified in the rendered HTML?  A missing H1 tag is a valid error for a page, but it shouldn't treat your image as a separate page.

    My guess is that the "images" that the SEO Toolkit is reporting with such a problem is because they are broken links and most likely are returning a NOT Found HTML page that does not include the H1. The fix is to either remove the links to the images and/or add the "not-found" page to your robots.txt so that crawlers do not download and analyze its content.
