Wrapping A H2 Tag Inside Another H2 Tag?

- 1 answer

Is it bad practice in terms of SEO to wrap a H2 tag inside another H2 tag like so or is this still a valid method of displaying h2 tags :

<div class="content-caption light-content">
    <h2 class="open-project-link">
        <a class="open-project" target="_blank" rel="nofollow noreferrer" target="_blank" rel="nofollow noreferrer" href="work01.html">
            <h2 class="section-info">Branding</h2>

Or will you be disciplined by google and will your SEO take a hit?



It is impossible to nest H2 elements. The HTML specification forbids it. Error recovery will either give you sequential headings or ignore one entirely (triggering it is foolishing though).

Content model: Phrasing content.

Phrasing content does not include headings.

It doesn't make sense to try to do so in the first place though.
