    The Content Title feature places an H1 Tag on my page AND makes the the Page Title to be the same as the H1 tag

    This was flagged by SEMRush as duplicate content on the same page.

    How can I make them different ? Do I have to Disable the Site Content feature site wide and then manually place an H1 tag on each page that is different from the Page Title ?

    I have them disabled at the moment

    Hi there,

    I believe that’s happening because you are using Elementor and it’s adding a H1 title for you as well.

    You can disable GP’s page title site wide using a layout element:

    Let me know if this helps or I’m missing something 🙂

    Hi Leo Yes I did disable it in Elements – Its not the nest solution as then that also disables my H1 tags so I now have to manually add back a different H1 tag – that can be done so I guess no big deal.

    But … there is an issue with AMP. When using the AMP plugin the Content Title tag still displays on the AMP version of the pages even though its been switched off site wide.

    Can you assist with that ?

    e.g.

    https://www.e-procurement.com/5-advantages-eprocurement-business
    https://www.e-procurement.com/5-advantages-eprocurement-business/amp/

    The AMP version still shows the Content Title and that’s triggering another duplicate content issue – and I cannot find anywhere that switches it off for AMP

    I’m confused. By default there should only be 1 <h1> element coming from GP which is the page title.

    Can you guide me to a page where you see 2 <h1> elements?

    Can you make sure you are using this plugin AMP for GP plugin?

    Hi Leo

    Yes there is only one <h1> element coming from GP which is the page title. You are correct. But thats the problem. Its an H1 Tag AND its the Page Title – which meeans Google is seeing Duplicate Content.

    And thats the problem.

    So I disabled the Content Title element – which removed the H1 tag from all my pages but kept the page title.

    So no I dont have duplicate content

    But I also don’t have an H1 tag due to disabling the element – but each page should have an H1 tag but it must be different from the Page Title – I I have to add back a manually created H1 tag with different but relevant content.

    Hope that is clear.

    Regarding your fix for the AMP –

    i) How do I apply a plugin from GitHub ?
    ii) This says it only fixes Menus ? Thats not the issue I explained. Will this GitHub Plugin fix the issue with the Content Title still appearing even when its related element has been disabled ?

    I’m not sure I understand. By “Page title”, do you mean the title above your address bar in the website tab?

    OK here is a screen shot of what I’m trying to explain.

    What about the GitHub AMP issue ?

    I have re-enabled the element so you can see it live on my NEWS pages – click on a news article and you will see the content title displayed as an H1 header on the page AND used as the page title.

    Its in two places – hence the problem.

    I can disable the content title thru elements but then I lose my H1 – so have to manually add the H1 back.

    and the AMP pages dont obey the element disable – so thats still happening no matter what I do

    What you’re seeing there is standard – it’s not duplicate content, and it’s not having multiple H1 elements. The page title in your browser tab is within a <title> element, and can definitely be the same as your content title.

    If you need to change it, you can use a plugin like Yoast.

    There shouldn’t be any reason to disable the H1 on the page. If you do, your page won’t have an H1, which isn’t good for SEO.

    Will this GitHub Plugin fix the duplicate content issue where

    https://www.e-procurement.com/approve-req-or-po/amp
    https://www.e-procurement.com/approve-req-or-po/

    are seen as duplicate content ?

    Click the green “Clone or download” button, and click the Download Zip zip option.

    Then you can upload it through “Plugins > Add New > Upload”.

    No, it doesn’t fix anything like that. I assume Google already has something in place to prevent normal/amp pages from being regarded as duplicate.
