Great job! You've made it to the final section of the course, which means you've learned a lot of concepts and are now ready to apply your knowledge in practice.

Now that we know how to build the elements for an HTML document let's focus on something that usually goes unnoticed by users but is actually very important for search engines. This is called Semantic HTML, and it helps your website rank higher in search results.

Semantic HTML refers to the practice of using HTML elements that convey meaning, providing context and structure to the content they enclose.

Theory

Semantic elements in HTML are tags that help convey the meaning of the content. These elements include <header>, <nav>, <section>, <article>, <footer>, and many more. Using these tags gives your web page a more organized and structured appearance, enhancing its readability and accessibility.

Benefits of Using Semantic HTML

  • Semantic HTML enhances accessibility by providing meaningful context to assistive technologies like screen readers, improving the browsing experience for users with disabilities.
  • Search engines prioritize content within semantic elements, making it easier for them to understand the relevance and hierarchy of your content. This can improve your website's ranking in search results.
In the next chapter, we will explore each semantic tag in detail and understand its purpose.
