    Yes, but it's a pointless effort - strong indicates that the specific bit of text is important, in relation to the other text around it. To make everything strong null-and-void's the semantic meaning of it. If you'd simply like to make the text bold, use <b>, or better yet, use the font-weight css property to control display.

    I see. I used strong tag for my pages because it looks nice. That was the reason. But does it affect seo? Using <strong> tag?

    Not noticeably, however all the search engines are putting ever more focus on semantic meaning and data structure, so if/when they do take note of it, it will count negatively. I'd strongly recommend using a little snippet of css to turn all the text bold instead.

    example:

    HTML:
    1.  
    2.  .bold { font-weight: bold; }
    3. <div class="bold">
    4.  ...
    5. </div>
    6.  
    or

    HTML:
    1.  
    2. <p style="font-weight:bold;">...</p>
    3.

    The strong tag is another way to end up with bold text. Technically, the strong tag designed to provide a basic guidance for people surfing the web using screen readers, while the bold tag should give a strong visual. So if you want to sturdily point something out in your text use strong tag, if it's just for visual look then use bold tag.

    Originally, was used to provide a visual indication that a text string was important. This unfortunately was misused by far too many people. The tag was created in HTML 4.01 to provide an indication to screenreaders to strongly emphasize the text string. The advantage of the tag is it provides an aural and visual indication of important where the tag does not.HTML5 supports both and tags.The search engines consider both and tags equally important.If you want to set all of your text to bold, then you should set the CSS font-weight style in your CSS file to font-weight: bold for your body element. This will cause all of your font weights to be bold. This eliminates the need to set the font-weight for each element.I hope this helps.Johnny Mazuma

    I see, thanks for answers. And what do you think about <big> tag? Is it possible to use this in long sentences or does it affect negative if we use it so long?

    the big tag was deprecated ages ago, can't remember the last time I saw anybody use it, and it isn't supported in html5 - thus I'd suggest avoiding it..

    technically, you can ,but what's the point? if you want to highlight the whole paragraph, why not just style the p tag? or maybe you want to get benefit from using strong tag towards seo, but that doesn't work, goolge is not that stupid.

    Wasn't strong supposed to be identical to bold, with the exception of extra support handling for Search Engine Optimization (a.k.a. SEO), working in concert with <META> and <Hx> tags? I've never found a real difference between <STRONG> and <B>, other than having to type more letters, to be honest. :)

    yeah, you can use it for the whole page! but do you really think that the whole page in bold will look good? I personally don't think so! :(

    you can use the strong tag on one page for all the sentences.
    you can use strong tag after <p> tag then you don't need to write the strong tag again and again for each line .

    I would only use the <strong> tag for headers... or words you want to stand out.... not for everything
