HTML Tags for Bold

Other than <b> element, there’s another HTML element called <strong> which basically bolds a text content just like the way <b> element does. But HTML <strong> element puts semantic importance to the content within its body.

Basically, on appearance you won’t see any differences but for SEO reasons, using <strong> over <b> element has more advantages.
