How does H1 tags works ?

I read several sites on the need for tags H1 H2 H3 ... to improve its referencing ... but even after some research, I did not understand how it works ...

Is it to replace the title tag?

Someone can tell me "just" what's good for and how to use it?

As said before <h1>, <h2>, <h*> are used to offer securities in your page.

Regarding the utility for referencing: since these tags show titles, search engines stand out more easily and are more likely to be used in the indexing and displaying results.

The other advantage of <h*> tags is their selection in CSS. I do not know if you know/use the CSS in your pages (x) html, but you just put in the CSS code below to completely define the style of your title level *.

Code:
 h1 
{
 color:red;
 font-weight:bold;
}

So, theoretically it will default to spend all your h1 tags in red and bold. After that, in practice, you will see that by default objects <h*> type inherit default style that you need if you wish to override the change.
