There is an SEO issue with Atahualpa that I'm trying to fix, and I'm wondering if anyone out here ever played with first link priority in blog title in Atahualpa.
Currently the CSS that formats the blog title is applied to the <h1> tag. Does anyone know a way to apply it to the <a> tag that's wrapped within instead?
If you don't know why this may be important, see explanation below or watch this YouTube video (skip to 2min 48sec)
When a given page has more than one link pointing to another page, only the first link's anchor text (as it comes in code) is considered for relevance. So if you have two links, the first one better not be an image, or you'll miss out on relevant anchor text juice.
Blog titles are perfect to transferring the juice as they're often the first link on every page that points to the home page (and hopefully have relevant anchor text)
But if you don't want to have the ugly text-based blog title you would traditionally apply CSS to the link's <a> tag to swap it with an image.
The problem with Atahualpa is that the <a> tag is not what gets formatted by blog title CSS - the <h1> tag that wraps it does.
Which means that the the parent tag gets swapped with an image, and the link disappears behind it, rendering the logo unclickable.
It's all fine and dandy as far as Google is concerned, but the user can't navigate to home page by clicking on the blog title.
The only solution is to format the <a> tag of the blog title instead.
Anyone know how to do this?
