    yeah google uses the h1 tags to help determine what the page is about so 10 h1 tags with a different keyword in each one would have a slight decrease in the page's seo for those keywords. a better strategy would be to have a different page for each of the keywords and only use that one keyword in the title, url, h1 tags, etc. but on-page seo isn't nearly as big of a factor as off-page so overall it may not make an enormous difference if your off-page seo is way better than your competitions. id only owrry about it if your off-page seo is roughly equal to that of your competitors

    Man...

    ALWAYS use only one <h1>

    You can play with <h2> and <h3> but never with <h1>.

    <h1> is really valuable for Google so keep it nice.

    If you will decide to use <h2> ,use <h3> as well - this will give you SERPs boost.

    same here, ExtraWinner nailed it.

    I use H1 on top (post title), usually little bit different wording than page title, but containing the keyword/s

    h2 subtitle

    h3 through out post (like subtitels), sometime at the very end
