On ecommerce pages, should the product name be put into headline tags?

  • I'm wondering if it's a good idea to put the name of the product in a headline tag on my product pages. It would seem to make sense to do so but I couldn't find anything specific about this in Google's SEO Starter Guide.

    What are your thoughts?
