Partial uniqueness is unique.

On a site that sells electronics, suppose the Title and H1 tag of every category page contained the words "Shop for" followed by the category. 
 
IE the page that pertained to laptops would have in its tags:
    <title> Shop for Laptops </title>
    <h1> Shop for Laptops <h1>
 
and the page that pertained to cameras would have in its tags:
    <title> Shop for Cameras </title>
    <h1> Shop for Cameras <h1>
    etc.. 
 
Would the fact that "Shop for" was in the title and H1 tag of every category page hinder SEO? Would it be better if there was some variance to the words "Shop for" across the site?

Why not try both ways and see what works for you? That's the only way to know.

If you are talking about category pages then mention what types of

laptops/ cameras you sell(the actual category)...you dont mention categories, so here is

a simplified example...

 

 

 

-Page that pertains to laptops:
 
    <title> Lightweight Laptops - perfect for work, school and gaming | Your Company name</title>
 
    <h1> Here are some portable computers for employment, education and fun  </h1>
 
 
-Page that pertains to cameras:
 
    <title> Professional Cameras | Your Company Name </title>
    <h1> Wide range for the expert shutterbug </h1>
   
(Jill, let me know what you think too please, thanks...)

For what it's worth, on most of my sites all the title tags happen to be the same as their respective H1 tags. And the same text is also used for the anchor text of links from other pages on the same site.

 

I didn't do this for any SEO advantage. It's just seemed a natural thing to do. The title is what people would probably see in their bookmarks, on their browser tabs, and in search results. It seems obvious that they should see that same text as the main heading in the article itself.

 

I can't say whether that's a good solution for you, but it definitely seems right to me.

Thanks for the feedback! It is said that each title tag on each page should be unique. That goes for H1 tages as well.
 
All the title tags (and H1 tags)for the category pages have some 'partial' uniqueness to them in that they all have the words "Shop for" in them, but "Shop for" is followed by the category, IE "Shop for 'Cameras'", "Shop for 'Laptops'", etc.
 
My question is: Is this considered unique enough by the search engines? Thanks again!
