Body Tag


Every web page has a Body Tag, which contains the content of the web site. All text, graPHIcs, and files contained in the web browser viewable area are contained in the body tag.

Body tags are significant for Search Engine optimization, since they help to define the Relevance of the page for a specific term. For best search engine ranking, the body tag should contain the exact phrase that appears in the other tags on the page, including the title tag, Headline Tag, and Alt Tags.
