Make sure the h1 tag and title tag are not the same

Hey there I am fanuel ephrem content marketer

Why does Semrush say "h1 and title tags have duplicate content"?

HTTP & HTTPS / WWW & non-WWW In most cases, domains have duplicate content due to http/https issues. According to W3C standards, whenever you have two versions of a URL (one on http and the other https), they are considered two separate documents.

The same goes for when a site has a www version of a page as well as a non-www version of the same page - search bots see these as two separate documents.

So when the SemrushBot sees these two separate documents, it will identify them as duplicate because that’s how the GoogleBot would see them.

To avoid this issue, you need to use canonical tags pointing from the duplicate pages to the correct page that you set as the canonical (or indexed) version.

You should also set up a 301 redirect from the http page to the https page so that users and search engine bots strictly see your https version.

Pages with little content Another reason would be if Site Audit sees two pages that have the same content in the header and footer of your website, but there is so little body content (1 or 2 sentences on the page) that the bot sees the pages as at least 80% similar and therefore duplicates. In this case, you would need to expand the content on your pages so that bots can identify them as unique.

And i love using semrush for a while now that it helped my blog to grow from 0 to 100,000 pageviews per month but now i am using another software i started using this software 1 month ago now i am getting around 10 thousand visitors per month to my blog and this seem like a lot but the software has many insane feaures to explode any blog with much traffic if you want to know more about it let me know replay to this email to say yes so i can send you the software but guys i recommend you to use these softwares both for best results i guarantee you if you want the software let me know message me or reply ok that is all for today.

Thank you!
