    Hi

    I wonder if having deviding the various sections in an article with <p> is better than not doing it and use the <br /> tag instead?

    any suggestions? Or maybe this is not a big deal.... wonder if it can be one of googles ranking signals :confused: (I don't think so, but not sure)

    i don't think P or BR has any connection to SEO as those are just like "punctuation tags" and nothing more.. they are not like H1, H2.. STRONG.. in which more likey something important is written in..

    Hmm... I don't think the <p> tag has anything to do with seo. Did some quick searches and most places say there isn't.

    Well written semantic code is important to SEO. Although 1 or 2 tags isnt going to make much difference.

    My advice is don't use <br /> in your code. its not recommended. use <p> tag instead. nothing about SEO but for your website performance.

    Good luck
