I'd say varying them would be a sign of "SEO activity", not the other way around. Like I said in my previous post in this thread, it's very common and natural to have the <title> coincide with <h1> , as it is very common and natural to see the same exact text in the anchor of the links to that page (and elsewhere).
Actually, I'd say this is true in a small number of cases. If your article is called "Macaroni and Cheese Recipe" b/c recipes are just not the sort of topic we create cutesy titles for, then of course it sounds natural to say "You might want to check out my macaroni and cheese recipe." But if your titles are more like "Are green widgets dangerous to small pets?", then it would sound really bizarre to a reader if you say "You might want to read more about Are green widgets dangerous to small pets?. That would set off huge "SEO" alarm bells. A much better approach, at least IMO, in that case would be "green widgets and pets." You've got your important keywords there in your anchor text, but it sounds natural.
