Hi all,

I own a brick and mortar gift shop in Portland, Oregon. I'm looking for some local search SEO advice regarding H1 tags on the homepage. I'm using Shopify to build and maintain my website. I don't at the moment sell online, so I'm just looking to improve my local ranking.

I recently found that Shopify assigns my H1 tag to the logo (Hello! Good Morning!). My ALT for the logo is set to " Hello! Good Morning! Portland Gift Shop."

Further down the homepage, I have an H2 tag that is "Portland Gift Shop"

I am considering changing the Shopify theme code so that I can assign "Portland Gift Shop" as the H1. Do you all think this would be a good move? How should I arrange my header tags on this page? I'll take any and all additional advice on improving my homepage.

Thanks so much!
