comment SEO benefit of H1 tags on the homepage
SEOMoz's recommendation appears to be more for users than for Google ("a searcher who's just clicked on a results expects to see a matching headline on the page they visit"), but more than that, we're talking specifically about the homepage in this instance, whereas SEOMoz is talking about articles on a website.

comment SEO benefit of H1 tags on the homepage
I agree it's good practice elsewhere, especially for people with screen readers, but why is it good practice on the homepage? All it is going to contain is the site name, and possibly some keywords for Google. Why is this "good practice"?

comment SEO benefit of H1 tags on the homepage
@closetnoc SEOMoz have done years of machine learning and correlation tests, to see what makes a difference and what doesn't. Their conclusion was that a H1 tag (on ANY page, nevermind the homepage) was no more potent to bold text at the top of the page. Rand (founder of SEOMoz) has since gone on record to say that recommending everyone use H1 tags as one of the biggest five mistakes he ever made: moz.com/blog/…

@Binarysurf Exactly. Thanks for quoting that. I don't know why Jukka doesn't want to put that in his answer. (I previously added this information, then accepted his answer, but he fumed that I'd "vandalized" his answer and rolled it back to the previous revision. shrug)

Your single citation, from w3.org, has nothing to do with SEO or dealing with single-language websites, hence my statement that you have no references in your answer relating to the question.

You state that the href attribute (actually hreflang) is pointless if it's pointing to a document of the same language (ie. self-referential). Google states: "Your annotations should be self-referential. Page A should use rel-alternate-hreflang annotation linking to itself."

There's no references in this answer relating to the question. There's just a lot of speculation: "it is thus a bit of a mystery", "browsers might communicate the information" (do they or not?), "the href attribute is rather pointless if the current document is in English" (which contradicts what Google says in the blogpost linked to in the original question). What sources can you bring to your answer? Plus it's worth noting that the question is about the hreflang attribute, not the href attribute.

@Kzqai The lang attribute is very helpful, but it's already mentioned in the original question.

Removing what **I** added to the answer on SO. The question is more open-ended now.
