Theme uses H5 tag on category pages for category names. Why? Is this SEO mistake? No, you can add H1 and any other headings in description fields. Making category name as H1 is huge seo mistake, because flat name has zero seo value. Example. Your category has name “mobile”? Does it have a sense for SEO? No. Imagine, that you will have all posts on your site with seo titles like “mobile”, “gadget”, “car”. This is the same for categories. If you want to have SEO optimized categories, add good and proper reasonable H1 headings to content of description fields.
