    <b> is a style - we know what "bold" is supposed to look like.

    <strong> however is an indication of how something should be understood. "Strong" could mean "bold" in a browser, but it could also mean a lower tone for a speaking program like Jaws.

    <b> and <i> are explicit - they specify bold and italic respectively.

    <strong> and <em> are semantic - they specify that the enclosed text should be "strong" or "emphasised" in some way, usually bold and italic, but allow for the actual styling to be controlled via CSS. Hence these are preferred in modern web pages.

    Bold is to bold a word whereas strong tag is to indicate how something is understood. Strong is to give importance to the text

    But how can someone understand something is written in bold tag and something is written in strong tag, both look similar to the reader. I personally don't think that it makes any different in any form.

    These HTML codes a mainly for search engine advice. Search engine spiders crawl webpage sources and they categorize them accordingly depending whether the content is bold or strong. It is not meant for normal reading.
