When you’re using a static Home page, WordPress will display the page’s title just like it would on any other page. But if you’d prefer to not show the page’s title, like “Home” in the image above, and you’re using the Genesis Framework, you can use the Genesis Title Toggle to remove it.
After installing and activating the plugin go to Genesis > Theme Settings and scroll down to this section:
This setting will turn off the titles on ALL pages. This may not be something you’d want, so you can leave this alone.
Instead, go into the page editor and pull up the page you’ve selected as your static Home page. Scroll down to the following section:
The Hide Title option is what you want to select to turn off the displaying of the title in the home page.
The second option, h1 Site Title, could be an important one for you. By checking the Hide Title option you’ve in effect removed the h1 tag from the home page of your site. For SEO reasons you may want to include an h1 tag, and the h1 Site Title option addresses this by wrapping the title-area in the header section with h1 tags.
