What is Semantic Markup?

Semantic markup is a process of structuring HTML to emphasize the content’s meaning, rather than its appearance. This often makes it easier for search engines and real users to understand the content.

More About Semantic Markup

With semantic markup, you can use HTML to add semantic meaning to online content. This may involve improving the clarity of the structure of the content. For instance, you might insert an H1 heading tag for a heading, or a p paragraph tag for the main content.

These tags can be more specific to make it even easier for browsers, search engines, and readers to better understand what’s on the page. Additional semantic HTML tags include section, article, nav, header, and footer. Before semantic markup, HTML often divided content using generic div tags, which wasn’t very descriptive. Overall, adding semantic markup to your content can improve accessibility and Search Engine Optimization (SEO).
