    H1 is a HTML tag to specify the heading of your Webpage. To specify your heading you can use h1-h6. H1 has high priority in SEO since it defines your webpage content.

    H1 is still an important SEO factor. It's an HTML tag used in headings for a webpage (e.g. you can use it in order to display the title of an article).

    Okay, I just finished watching a video where Matt Cutts mentioned about H1 tags. He says it's good to have H1 tags but if you're going to redo everything on your website because your previous posts were not tagged, well, you're just wasting your time. Because Google, as well the other search engines, adapt the web as it is. So it's pretty lame to be obsessed with it.

    <h1> is the highest level heading. It denotes that the particular words that are in the h1 tag are important. So, search engines understand that the particular keywords are important for your website and ranks you higher for that keywords if your links are linked to your website accordingly

    The h1 tag is the heading of this paragraph. It is used to define the content of the page, and for proper document layout. Whether it is a Web page or a newspaper, every written article should have a proper heading. On the Internet, we use the h1 tag. Examples of h1 usage are given below.

    Just like what they have said, its the header tags. A website must have proper H1 - H6 tags.

    Google gives high priority to the text defined in H1 tag. So people try sneaking keywords in H1 tags and make the page more relevant for which the user is searching.

    Filling header tags up to H6 is not really necessary. You just have to make a proper H1 for every pages of your website. You can use this one also in targeting your keywords by putting it on H1 tags.

    H1 or Heading tag is quite literally the heading of your webpage, much like the heading of a newspaper article. When someone enters your website, they will naturally notice the Heading before reading the content on the page.

    H1 is a meta tag the tells the search bot the pages headline. The pages headline or “H1″ is one of the many ways that help the search engine quickly determine if the pages content is relevant to the search term being used.

    Using H1, H2, H3 is better than bold the text. This is a good way to tell the search engines about your content category.
