Google bot give some importance to h1 and h2 tags so place your page title with keyword clubbing in the beginning of the page. don't put images in h1 tag.

Thumbs up

In the Page you can have one H1 tag and it is one of the on-page factors. And if you use image use alt text give the keyword name in it.

Better you can use h1 tag is more powerful.

Header tags are an effective way to communicate to the search engines and readers what a page is about. They convey the importance of the text inside of the header tag.

Header tags define your page's organizational structure and simplify page navigation. Well-written header text informs visitors and helps them navigate through your page - maybe keeping them at your site longer. Effective header tags will even increase your site ranking on some search engines.

The top heading on your page should always us the H1 header element and it should be the only instance of the H1 header tag on the page. On this page, the H1 tag is Correct Use of header tags - H1, H2, H3. Again, as covered in the previous two day’s articles on Page Titles and Description meta tags, the Keyterms that are used in the H1 header tag, are also used in the page title and the description tag, keeping the optimisation on-focus.

H1 Tag Use Only One Time Of A Page For SEO than Use H2, H3 Tag . For the Image Use Alter tag on the image So It is very useful tips for SEO.

Header tags are much important tags in terms of getting good rankings. Search Engines give more importance to the H tags because that are viewed promptly and give the beauty to the site.
