Google uses HTML tags to understand the content structure and hierarchy of a web page. This information helps Google better understand the relevance and context of a web page's content, which can in turn improve its ranking in search results. Some commonly used HTML tags that help with search engine optimization (SEO) include header tags (H1, H2, H3, etc.), title tags, meta description tags, and alt tags for images. These tags provide information about the page's title, description, headings, and images, which can help Google understand the context and purpose of the page, and display relevant information in search results.

Additionally, HTML tags like anchor tags (a href) help Google understand the structure and relationships between different web pages through links. This allows Google to crawl and index pages more effectively, as it follows links to discover and rank new content.


Google also pays attention to HTML tags related to structured data, such as schema.org markup. This markup uses specific HTML tags to provide additional context about the content on a webpage, such as product information, reviews, events, and more. By incorporating structured data, webmasters can enhance their search listings with rich snippets, which help display more detailed information in search results, making it easier for users to find relevant content.


Overall, by properly using HTML tags and incorporating structured data, webmasters can provide Google with valuable information about their web pages, making it easier for the search engine to understand and rank their content appropriately.
