H1, H2 are header tags according to precedence. Alt tag is the keyword that is defined in website source to define your website visibility in search engines.

H1 tag use for main heading. H2 tag using for small heading than H1. Alt tags using for Image optimization, Crawler not able to crawl to image that's why using ALT tgs.

H1 tag at the beginning and end of the sentence. This shows the importance of the title (or subject) to the content. The search engine pulls out the sentence or words between the H1 tag as the whole topic of the content.

H2 tags could be the subheading or targets you want to hit down through the content, just like I have used an H2 tag for the subheading "Other Heading Tags"

Alt tags describe your images to people who can't see well and also to search engines.

The h1 h2 and h3 tags is like a family tree.For example Remember in school days where students use to draw diagrams of a family tree
Placing the head of the family on the top and then the placing the next member according to its importance.I learnt it this way
H1 h2 and h3 tag behaves just like that and they are for the search engines to convey what's your website about
H1 is the main heading( The h1 tag should contain your targeted keywords)
H2 is the sub heading
and H3 is the sub heading for H2
