Quick Tip: Define the main region

The <main> element or ARIA role=”main” can be used to identify the main content area of a web page. The WebAIM Million analysis found that only 23.5% of home pages had the main region/landmark identified, compared to over 50% of home pages that defined other types of regions and landmarks. Defining the main region provides a method for users to quickly navigate to this important content.
