    Title tag and H1 tag both are considered to be important elements for On Page SEO. Title tag should be relevant to the webpage content whereas you can put your most competitive keyword in H1 tag.

    Are <h2> tags and other headings even relevant?

    The Title Tag should also contain the keyword that is most relevant to the page content. The relevance of the Title Tag to the keyword being searched helps determine whether or not the Title Tag will be used as the title of the listing. As far as the page's actual position in the SERPs, the Title Tag is no longer relevant to Google, although it may be relevant to other search engines.

    Both keeps importance in terms of the search engines. But first of all the title tag keeps priority and after that the H1 tag. I mean when a search engine crawler comes to crawl a page, first it considers reading the title and then the H1 tag.

    title Tag more important

    title tag should be the first element to consider when bots climb the page, I think. H1 should only the sub supplementary use.

    I personally think Title Tag is more important. Title Tag is the main trunk of a tree, and H1 tag is the sub trunk to make the trees flourish. Take our site t shirt manufacturer for an example. I would write a H1 Tag in the main description of our business. But in the sub pages, like t shirt or polo shirt pages, I would use H2 tags. Too much H1 tag would decrease your importance of H1 tag. I only use H1 tag in the home page.

    Specifically H11 Tag is used for put heading in that you can use you keyword but title tag useful for hyperlink anchor tag.
    So these are completely different & I prefer H1 tag than title tag.

    I think you already know that Title tag is used to define page title like "whats its about" and <h1> tag used to describe heading of the page. So both are important both are used only one time. So there is no any option like which is important or not.

    Hi friends,

    Hope you are doing good

    I agree with all of your points. As far as H1 and Title tag is concerned.H1 is important.In fact,in terms of on- page optimization your targeted keywords should be included in this.H1 tag is used for individual post/page titles,and you can change this in any template.Whereas if we talk about Page Title,it means the whole title of any web page.

    So, to be on the safer side, it's recommended you to use <H1> <Title>.

    Thanks :cool:

    Both the title and H1 tags are important in on-page seo. Google has given different values to both. So both are important in optimizing a website.According to me, the title is more important then H1 because search engines display it in search engine results. So a good and relevant title can drive traffic from the search engine(if you have good ranking on relevant keywords).
