    Hello people. Was just wondering if your site logo should be H1? Because that will result in having 2 h1 tags as the homepage title is also defined as h1. What are you thoughts on this?

    Really shouldn't matter at all. The only way I see this negatively hurting your site is how it will create a bunch of duplicate content. However, google should be smart enough by now to seperate duplicate content and general site branding.

    You should be fine, I wouldn't worry about it.

    It can be both:
    Code:
    <h1><img src="image.jpg" alt="Your site title"></h1>
    It can be beneficial for SEO, depending what you have in the ALT text.

    It's nice if you can vary the text in inner pages, so you don't have the same H1 on all pages.

    As duimstra's said. It's possible to have text in an image alt tag and use that as a h1.
    But at same time that might look spammy? I don't know. The same H1 for all pages across a site..
    I would set it to H1 on the homepage and a lower one for the subpages.
