    Yes, still very important. Depending on your website or Wordpress blog, the title tag automatically becomes the H1 tag.

    Yes Google puts weight on <h1> tags.

    The <h1> tag is equivalent to a <title> tag & Google can be coached into swapping out the SERP title with an <h1> tag text.

    Always have a single unique <h1> & <title> tag targeting the best two search phrases per page.

    of course google gives priority to H1 tags. Because this is the tag who actually works like a title for content.

    It's not only important - it's crutial for SEO purposes. Along with title tag these are the last two places where you can manipulate keywords with a strong effect (on site of course and apart from content).

    It is not a question of importance being attached to H1, rather it is a matter of applying correct code semantics to make Google understand the organization of content on a web page.

    Yes, <h1> tags still have value. It is still considered as one of the major On page seo strategy.
