The <address> tag is a semantic HTML element that is used to indicate that an organization or person’s contact information is being provided. This tag can include information such as a mailing address, links to social media, email, phone number, URLs, etc. This element can also be used in various areas such as the top of the webpage or its bottom.

Note: Only contact information should be presented within the <address> tag. Content such as a blog post’s publication date should be added within the applicable elements, for example, the <time> tag.
