HTML <strong> Tag


The <strong> HTML tag is used to indicate that the text it encloses should be rendered with strong importance, typically resulting in bold text. It is a semantic tag used for conveying meaning to both browsers and assistive technologies, rather than just dictating the visual style. It is often employed to highlight key words or phrases within a document to emphasize their significance to the content, such as highlighting important terms in a glossary or emphasizing a critical point in an article. Using the <strong> tag helps improve the accessibility and SEO (Search Engine Optimization) of web content by providing a clear structure and hierarchy to the text.
