I have a site that I'm developing that has a two column structure:
left column that contains navigation and calls to action
right column that contains the main page content
I'm having a few issues with the positioning of H1, H2 and H3 tags due to this structure.
The titles in the left column are important so I've given them a H2 tag and then the page title (in the right column) a H1 tag. The main column also consists of other sub headings so I've given them H2 and H3 tags accordingly.
I've just viewed the document outline using the Chrome Web Developer plugin and it comes back with this:
<h2>Find your perfect place
<h2>The show home now open
<h1>Show home now open
<h3>Sub sub heading
Now the problem, I'm presuming, is that Google will read from left to right on the page and therefore it's finding the less important left column content first before the actual main page title in the right column and so it's saying there's a missing H1 tag.
Is there any way around this?
Any help would be very much appreciated.
