I have had some success fixing pages where the title and H1 tag were using the same keywords and also repeated in first paragraph
@Lorel, what effect did this have?
I have quite a lot of pages that use the same words in Title and h1, and in general it hasn't appeared to do any harm: my use of Title and h1 is generally "what the page is about".
e.g. (w3.org): "If the document is basically stand-alone, for example Things to See and Do in Geneva, the top-level heading is probably the same as the title."
It doesn't reflect well on Google if this attracts a penalty.
