    Description

    This rule determines if the first heading <h1> have recommended description with at last 20 characters.

    Purpose

    The heading <h1> is crucial for SEO. Both the reader and the crawler are guided by it regarding the pages.

    The recommended <h1> SEO strategy is to keep it between 20 and 70 characters, even though there is no technical limit to the length of an <h1> heading – you may make it as long or as short as you wish.

    Because search engines (e.g. Google, Bing) may substitute your <h1> heading for your page title if it is deemed inadequate, we advise adhering to the maximum length for page names (minimum 20 characters, maximum 70 characters).

    How to fix it

    • Make sure the <h1> heading description contain at least 20 characters.
