In the initial stages of creating your website using a CMS (Content Management System) or editor software, an H1 tag is often set to an image space where the company logo will be placed. If your website is created without this in mind, your company logo will be set as an H1 tag for every page.
Because H1 tags appear as the title of the page, they should be reflect the topic of an individual page by summarizing its content. In addition, since each page should offer visitors different content, a different title for each page is a highly recommended approach.
H1 tags help visitors clearly understand the purpose of the page by displaying a short summary of the page’s content as its title.
Google provides some free tools such as Google AdWords and Google Trends. SimilarWeb is also a useful site for analyzing keywords used in competing sites.
Some CMS and editor software use the same text for both the H1 tag and the title tag.
There is no significant problem in terms of ranking even if the same text is set to both the H1 tag and title tag, but their intended roles are different.

H1 tags are usually visible on each page, while title tags are often not readily apparent. In this case, the length of text for an H1 tag depends on the page layout. Along with the page layout, it is important to set the text for H1 tags with an appropriate number of characters so visitors can easily read them.
H1 tags are not included in the title or description of a webpage in search results, but title tags are used to create a title for search results. Because there is a limit on the length of titles that can appear in search results, it is important to ensure that titles are short but provide enough information to makes potential visitors want to click.
In the case where setting an H1 tag to text is difficult or not possible for some reason and there is no choice but to set it to an image, it should be described using an appropriate alt tag for the image.
