What is a Semantic markup?

Semantic markup is a way of writing and structuring your HTML. Semantic HTML or semantic is a coding style where the tags embody what the text is meant to convey. It is introduces meaning to the web page rather than just a presentation.

In Semantic HTML tags like <b></b> for bold, and <i></i> for italic should not be used, reason being they just represent formatting, and provide no indication of meaning or structure.

HTML is divided into two types of Mark-up :

  1. Structural Markup
  2. Semantic Markup

These are the key benefits from Semantic HTML:-

  • Developers find ease to maintain the code and can create a wall between presentation (CSS) and content (HTML).
  • less coding without cluttered tags, which will further process the page faster to load.
  • Visually challenged users can access the site with a screen reader.
  • It will increase your search engine ranking/traffic by putting weight to different parts of the document.
