Bold text can be a useful tool in a blog. You might use it to emphasize a point or to show an action that needs to be performed. Some blogging applications use a graphical interface that lets the blogger simply highlight a word or phrase and press a "B" button to bold the text, similar to the process used in a word-processing application. Other bloggers will have to add HTML code to the blog entry.
Find the text that you want to appear as bold type. For example, here is a text snippet to which you might want to add emphasis: "Designing your Web pages with SEO in mind will help your site attract more visitors."
Add "<b>," without the quotes or comma, in front of the text you want to appear in bold type. Example: "Designing your Web pages with SEO in mind <b>will help your site attract more visitors."
Add "</b>," without the quotes or comma, directly after the text, to close the tag. Example: Designing your Web pages with SEO in mind <b>will</b> help your site attract more visitors.
Tips & Warnings
- There is ongoing discussion in the world of Web publishing about whether to use a <bold> or a <strong> tag on websites. To the reader's eye <bold> and <strong> look exactly the same. <Strong> is typically used to add semantic meaning to the text. The only real difference between the two is that <strong> will let speech readers know to emphasize the text. Search engines do not care which of these two tags is used.
