Web site layout and structure has become a critical factor in (SEO) Search Engine Optimization.
Search engines such as Google, Yahoo, and Bing have changed the manner in which they index your pages. Site structure now plays a roll in optimization of your website or blog and helps in determining the relevance of the information within your site.

CSS stands for cascading style sheets. This is code that separates the layout from the content. In old school design everything was laid out in tables and text was formatted within the page itself.

These tags carry more weight with the search engine algorithms and basically tell the spiders what information will be in the article or post. There are many other factors also analyzed by the spiders at this point.
