    I read controversial advice regarding onpage factors. Some resources say your tag Title must be same as your H1 tag. Others say it is an error that must be fixed. What are opinions?

    h1 has to be above every other h tag so having it as your title only makes sense. Also, the search engines mostly likely will use it as your page title.

    In what scenario do you think it shouldn't be your page title and why?

    The main difference between a page title and an h1 tag is that the page title is shown in the browser window and search results snippet while the h1 tag is only shown on the page itself.

    There is no problem, if we give same title and H1 tag.

    It increases keyword density in the code of your page.
    Having that said I assume that is better to have it a bit modified than title, but with keyword inside.

    It's not necessary to repeat the title verbatim in your H1. But here's one caution: don't change the title so much in the H1 that it is very different from the title. If you do that, your readers may be confused and even wonder if they landed on the wrong page. Typically I make my H1 similar to, but not usually identical to, the title.

    You should use your main targeted keyword in both but you should avoid using exact same content in both tags.

    Don't use similar for both place even there should be included keyword with differences. So, crawlers will consider fresh text from both places.

    I think should change your page and H1 Title. In my business Hemp product in Harriman does the same thing.
