    You should be naming it what is most useful for your users.

    So can I use that same name putting the hyperlink on 300 pages pointing to the same homepage? Will this be good for SEO? Thanks for the help.

    If you have only one link from your product pages to your homepage, use logo in the top left corner (presuming you have one). The alt text here should be just your brand name. If you are putting a separate internal link on your 300 product pages in addition to to logo, you need to decide if the link is meant for crawlers or users.

    If this link is intended so crawlers establish more relevancy between the homepage and its top phrases, put the link in the body <div> and use varying keyword-optimized anchor text phrases to help boost relevancy between the homepage and those phrases.

    If it is a breadcrumb link or in the footer, I would recommend just using "Home" or "Return to Homepage" in every instance because that would then become a link exclusively for users.
