    I generally use one H1.

    But am fairly confident that if you don't have an H1 or if you have multiple, Google can tell (or at least make a fairly accurate guess) as to which is the "real" title of the page.

    I have a site that uses 0 H1s per article. Originally set that site up with some free-to-use stylesheet that set the H1 style to be specifically for the site name/logo in the site's header and then used H2s for page titles. Worked fine / didn't notice any difference. Lots of pages ranking on that site as well.

    2H1s in combination with 2-3 H2s will send pretty clear and strong message about your topic (primary keywords). Of course, do not forget to optimize URL too. Add keyword variation to only 1 H2 and take care on keyword density

    is there any difference between using h1 and h2 instead of h5 or h6?

    i use h5-h6 instead of the other thing because it makes the title look smaller and more proportioned. i feel like h1 hurts aesthetics of page with those big letters.
    does this hurt my on page seo?

    There have been two studies that found the use of the h1 tag might actually be a lower ranking factor, I did not write down the source in my notes but I am sure you can Google it. I only use H tags for the larger font and all caps but I do a lot of Wordpress. h tags have zero if any factor in ranking thanks to overuse. Metadescription is going down the same route. On several of my pages the first part of the page is what is served up for SERP summary not the meta. I have seen pages outrank me with similar backlink etc without H tags and meta desc.

    I've never used h1 tags because it's so huge. Maybe only when I have a 4000 word article. Never really cared about it, but I will always sub head the titles in article like it should be.
