I'm just going through my blog and cleaning a few things up but I'm unsure as to what to do with with the H1 tag. Currently I have the logo (with text) that's the H1 tag and then the post title as the H2 tag. But, my thinking is that I'd be better off just having the logo in a DIV and then the post title as the H1 tag - I'm sure that'd be more relevant to Search Engines that the logo title I have throughout my site.

Any ideas?

Yes, it would be much more relevant to the search engines. I can't think of any reason why you'd want to have your logo in an H1 tag.

Actually I don't know what I was saying! That was a lie. I basically have my strapline as the H1 tag but still think more relevant if I place the post title in it's place.

It may be best to have the blog name as the H1 tag on the homepage only, and on individual post pages use the post title as the H1 tag.
