 query : Is there any SEO benefit for the h1 of a post to contain a hyperlink? I've seen a lot of websites where posts have h1 headers that contain hyperlinks: <h1 class="title"> <a href="link">Title</a>

I've seen a lot of websites where posts have h1 headers that contain hyperlinks:

<h1 class="title">
<a href="link">Title</a>
</h1>
enter code here


I don't know if this helps in SEO or not, should I do this in the header of my posts or is it unnecessary?

It's used for sharing links easily. There is no any SEO benefits.

Here in stackexchange, you can see h1 tags and hyperlink together, because it is easiest to copy paste when someone want to reference another question from SE. You can still copy paste from browser address bar, but this one, make copy paste faster.

Link with better anchor text is good practice for SEO.

Extra note :Most of people don't do that, because Googlebot follow the link structure and crawl it all links. Suppose Google can crawl 500 URL in one day, and you place header link, then your 1 crawl will be waste in header link, because Google already crawling it. There is no any official statements how Google crawl links, so I can't add more value on this. Generally I don't do that, unless I have specific reason which does not related to SEO.
