HTML tags are like keywords define that how a web browser will format and display the content. With the help of tags, a web browser can distinguish between HTML content and simple content.

With web development being one of the best tech jobs mastering the basic HTML tags is an ideal place to begin learning.

Top 10 HTML Tags


1. <html></html>

This is the root element tag. It designates that everything between these brackets contains HTML code.

2. <head></head>

This tag distinguishes the head of the web page from the content. This is where you put Javascript code or give ‘meta’ information about the website.

3. <title></title>

Have you noticed that browser tabs contain text that gives you an overview of the website? That text is written as the site’s title with this tag.

4. <body></body>

The body tag specifies the actual content of the website.

5. <h1></h1>

This is a heading tag, which creates a title by making the text bigger and making it bold. There are six heading tags: h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, in descending order of size.

6. <p></p>

This tag specifies that a given section is supposed to be its own paragraph. Browsers usually insert blank spaces between paragraphs, making the text easier to read.

7. <a></a>

This tag let’s us create a link with its ‘href’ attribute, like so:

<a href=www.somewebsite.com>Click here</a>.

8. <img></img> 

The ‘image’ tag is how you insert images into a web page.

9. <div></div>

Div tags group multiple pieces of content into a single container, which allows you to do things like apply separate styling to just that content

10. <span></span>

Span is like a smaller version of div, used to style or interact with inline content.
