Removing an H1 wrapper from my header

Recommended Posts

Hey Y'all!

I'm a one person marketing team for my company and we work with a third party seo agency for keeping our site inline with SEO best practices. In our latest audit, we found an h1 tag wrapped around our site img logo. This has two negative consequences: First, the H1 is not visible to users which can be considered black hat SEO and a negative rank factor for your site. Secondly, Google and other search engines are reading this same H1 as the primary header for each page because it comes before all other H tag indicators. 

<h1 id="logoImage"><a href="/"><img alt="Hybrid Cloud Management Platform | Cloud Management Platform | RackWare" data-src="https://www.rackwareinc.com/.hb-image/Lyo-/UG02YWM1NStIVWhFRXJMdXVhOFNVSXVWQkhoRTdSSU0-" class=" hb-defer-offscreen" /></a></h1>

I tried plugging in some custom code in the code injector to remove the h1 wrapper, but nothing seems to be working. As I'm not a web developer, wanted to reach out to the forum and see if there were any suggestions or recommendations. I'll attach what I tried throwing into the custom code injector below: 

document.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', function() {
    // Get the h1 element
    var h1Element = document.getElementById('logoImage');

    if (h1Element) {
        // Create a new anchor element
        var anchorElement = document.createElement('a');

        // Get the img element within the h1
        var imgElement = h1Element.querySelector('img');

        // Set attributes of the anchor element
        anchorElement.setAttribute('href', '/');
        anchorElement.appendChild(imgElement.cloneNode(true)); // Cloning the img element

        // Replace the h1 element with the anchor element
        h1Element.parentNode.replaceChild(anchorElement, h1Element);
