It’s Just a Matter of Semantics! — Semantic HTML

  1. Using the semantic tags will not only help with navigation through your website, it will also improve your Search Engine Optimization (SEO). Search engines such as Google will rank your website higher because it is easier for them to identify how your pages are arranged.
  2. Using semantic HTML will help with your journey towards ADA compliance. Becoming ADA compliant involves adhering to the latest web accessibility guidelines known as the WCAG 2.1. Following these guidelines includes optimizing sites for people with disabilities. One way to do this is developing with semantic HTML so people that utilize screen readers can navigate your site just like anyone without a disability can. Everyone should be able to obtain the same information — no matter how they are receiving it.
