Minimal Theme - H1 tag as store logo

Hello, 

I have been trying to work on this SEO of a thing for about a couple of months. I recently change my shopify page theme to "Minimal" and I realized that the h1 tag on my home page (theme.liquid) is my logo the alt text associated to it is my store name (elnuk) which has no detailed description.


            <h1 class="site-header__logo{% if settings.left_aligned_logo %} post-large--left{% endif %}" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Organization">
          {% else %}
            <div class="h1 site-header__logo{% if settings.left_aligned_logo %} post-large--left{% endif %}" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Organization">
          {% endif %}
            {% if settings.logo_use_image %}
              <a href="/" itemprop="url">
                <img src="{{ 'logo.png' | asset_url }}" alt="{{ shop.name }}" itemprop="logo">
              </a>
            {% else %}
              <a href="/" itemprop="url">{{ shop.name }}</a>
            {% endif %}
          {% if template == 'index' %}
            </h1>

As part of the Minimal theme layout, you can select one of the pages to show on the homepage. So I decided to featured a page on my store homepage with some store descriptions and  i added H1, H2 and H3 tag just to tag more search keywords.

<div id="home_page_mata_info" style="margin: 0px auto;">
<h1 style="font-size: 15px; float: left; width: 330px; text-align: center; font-weight: normal; color: #949494;">NeckTies Lapel Pins Pocket Squares in Toronto</h1>
<h3 style="font-size: 15px; float: left; width: 330px; text-align: center; font-weight: normal; color: #949494;">Buy Bow Ties in Toronto</h3>
<h2 style="font-size: 15px; float: left; width: 330px; text-align: center; font-weight: normal; color: #949494;">Men's Ties in Canada</h2>
<div style="clear: both;"></div>

Even though I have one H1 tag as my logo with store name description as the alt tag and another one (h1,h2,h3) in my page that is featured on my homepage, will these two h1 conflict? I read that if google see multiple h1 tag on a website, it can be flagged as a spam. 

please take a look at my page to see if it optimized properly.

HELP!, please

Hello Kunle,

Brandon here from the Shopify Guru Team :)

There will only be a conflict if you are manually adding the H1 tag into the body.  If you are just using H2's in the body of the text you should be fine and not have any conflicting issues.

Thanks for posting!

I think I'm having a similar issue with the Minimal theme.  My logo is marked as H1 tag, but I need a wordy description according to bing's webmaster.  I'm not sure what to do with this because I don't want the text on the front of the page.  I already have a page selected for the "additional home page content".  Where and how can I use the H1 tag without having to add additional ugly text?

BUMP for more information. Why is the logo used as H1 tag? I am new to seo but this seems silly
