Yesterday i changed the location and content of the H1 tag on my site. The H1 tag used to wrap around the logo image/title and alt tag of the site so was the same on all pages, my site has well over 100,000 pages.
I have now changed the H1 tag so that it represents the content of each page and is unique on each page, which from reading a lot about H1 tags recently i felt was the correct thing to do.
I did this because i think that with the new setup the potential for much more SE traffic is there and i feel it is correct from the surfer point of view, I may be wrong of course.
today i woke up and i see a big drop in search engine traffic.
my question is, do you know if:
A: I did the correct thing in changing the H1 tag?
B: will my traffic return and how long?
C: Should i change it back to how it was and hope the traffic returns?
any info from people who have done this before would be great.
