    Default Bing SEO Header Tag Errors

    Hi I'm new to all this so don't beat me up for asking a stupid question.

    Im using OscMax 2.5

    I have added my site
    www.deckside.com.au to the Bing Webmaster tools but I seem to get the following SEO Suggestions or errors.

    The <img> tag does not have an ALT attribute defined.

    The <h1> tag is missing.

    I have been trying to fix this for many hours but cannot seem to work out how to fix it.

    Can anyone help?

    Thank you in advance


    Darren

    A little knowledge is a dangerous thing
    Too little information.
    For what pages? Not all should be crawled and search engines frequently ignore robots.txt.

    I pointed BING's SEO Analyzer at DECKSIDE :

    I get the following results

    Error Count Description
    1 The <h1> tag is missing.
    1 The description is too long or too short.
    23 The <img> tag does not have an ALT attribute defined.

    In the Information Pages editor, try wrapping <h1>..</h1>
    around,
    Welcome to DECKSIDE for all your marine replacement parts and servicing requirements.
    ..though I think offhand that you can apply the style in the editor.

    You will have to inspect the main image elements to check for ALT tags - I had a quick look at the main standard ones, including product thumbnails and they are fine. Check your footer image.
    Your SEO 'tool' is probably mostly complaining about the inconsequential images that make up the page design.

    In the webmaster tools from Bing - simply click the header "Page Source" and the code where you are missing the tag is highlighted in yellow.

    HTML Code:
    <h1>
    <span style="font-size:14px;">
    <strong>
    <span style="font-family:verdana,geneva,sans-serif;">
    Welcome to DECKSIDE for all your marine replacement parts and servicing requirements. 
    <span style="color:#ffffff;">Marine Direct on-line store Australia</span>
    </span>
    </strong>
    </span>
    </h1>
    You are overriding the H1 style and it should only contain the one line.
    Equip yourself with Firebug.
