HTML tags, or Hypertext Markup Language tags, are elements used to structure and define content on a webpage. These tags are enclosed in angle brackets (“<” and “>”) and come in pairs – an opening tag and a closing tag – with the content placed between them. HTML tags for SEO provide instructions to web browsers on how to display various elements, such as text, images, links, and more. Here are some commonly used HTML tags:

  1. Document Structure:

    • <html>: The root element of an HTML document.
    • <head>: Contains meta-information about the HTML document.
    • <title>: Sets the title of the HTML document.
    • <body>: Contains the content of the HTML document.
  2. Text Formatting:

    • <h1> to <h6>: Heading tags, where <h1> is the largest and <h6> is the smallest.
    • <p>: Defines a paragraph.
    • <strong>: Represents strong importance, often displayed as bold.
    • <em>: Represents emphasized text, often displayed as italic.
  3. Lists:

    • <ul>: Defines an unordered list (bulleted list).
    • <ol>: Defines an ordered list (numbered list).
    • <li>: Defines a list item.
  4. Links:

    • <a>: Creates hyperlinks. The href attribute specifies the URL.
  5. Images:

    • <img>: Embeds images. The src attribute specifies the image source.
  6. Tables:

    • <table>: Defines a table.
    • <tr>: Defines a table row.
    • <td>: Defines a table cell (data).
    • <th>: Defines a table header cell.
  7. Forms:

    • <form>: Defines an HTML form for user input.
    • <input>: Defines an input field. Various types include text, password, checkbox, radio, etc.
    • <label>: Defines a label for an input element.
  8. Semantic Markup:

    • <div>: Defines a division or section in an HTML document (used for styling with CSS).
    • <span>: Defines an inline container (used for styling with CSS).
    • <header>, <footer>, <nav>, <article>, <section>: Semantic HTML5 tags for structuring content.
  9. Miscellaneous:

    • <br>: Inserts a line break.
    • <hr>: Defines a horizontal line.
    • <meta>: Provides metadata about the HTML document (often used for character set, viewport settings, etc.).

These are just a few examples, and there are many more HTML tags available for specific purposes. Understanding and using HTML tags correctly is fundamental to creating well-structured and visually appealing web pages.
