I have a semantic conflict: If the significative unit is the page (and not the bunch of them which form the article), it is weird to tag as h3 an epigraph tagged as h2 in the previous page.
What I do is recreate in each page the global structure: h1 with the title of the article, h2 with the title of the sub-epigraph, and the texto with the corresponding h3 headers. This way I preserve the unit of the article while situating each part in the apropriate context, keeping at time the singularity of all pages. (stetically it is not very nice, but I can make disappear the empty h in the presentation layer with a class styled as display:none;).
Would this be a 'good practice' in your opinion?
Thanks for the article an your comments.

Yes, search engines do read the alt attribute contents of your images. As to how much weight is given compared to other types of text on the page...I'm not sure about that; it's a good question!
I'll have to track down an SEO expert to ask.
Thanks for your comments.

The search engines can read the file name, the title text, the alt text, the caption, and the description text. All of these are routine entry fields on a WordPress blog for an individual image.

I am hoping someone can give me an answer on the best practice for the H1 tag on a blog.
I am developing a Wordpress blog and see that in this post Joost talks about how you can place the H1 tag multiple times on the blog home page. For example to use the H1 tag on all the post titles on the home page.
but in many other posts i see that people say they should only use one H1 per page.
In another post from Joost at http://yoast.com/blog-headings-structure/ he says "There is usually only one H1 on any page"...
Now notice the word 'usually'. so in that post he doesnt say that it 'should' be one H1 tag.
So if i place the H1 tag on ALL of my post titles on the home page will that be too many H1 one tags on one page? or is it ok?
Hope to hear from someone on this matter soon
