At on time, it seemed that the right thing to do was to use the same text, or keywords in the Title Tag, H1 page title, Description tag, Alt tag ext. And although the consensus seems to be clear not to over stuff, etc, It is not clear as to whether using the same text is damaging, helpful or neutral to not using the same text. I mean after all that is the product on the page, right?
 
Example. Selling a "ABC Company model 123 Red Widget"
 
Title: ABC Company model 123 Red Widget
H1: ABC Company model 123 Red Widget
Description: ABC Company model 123 Red Widget. The best Red Widget on the market today
alt: Photo of ABC Company model 123 Red Widget
 
What is your opinion? Helpful, Harmful or Neutral? Thanks

I think slight variations can be more helpful than exact repetition, but I'm not convinced that repetition the way your examples show is actually harmful.

 

By the way, the alt attribute of a photo really doesn't need "photo of," although deleting that creates even more repetition, I suppose.

Was it the 'right' thing to do or the lazy thing to do? If everyone else is doing the lazy thing then there seems to be more opportunity for those who extend themselves just a bit and put the pedal to the metal. It may not help much, but why waste the opportunity?

It was NEVER "the right thing" to do, it was just one more thing the "experts" claimed to be "what search engines want", and as per usual they were  proven to be wrong.
