How to Fix the Problem

Identify the main content in the document and make sure it is unique.

The Algorithm, in Simple Terms

Engine scans the webpage for multiple elements using role=main or more than one <main> which does not have a hidden attribute.

Why Is it Important?

Landmark roles (or “landmarks”) programmatically identify sections of a page. Landmarks help assistive technology (AT) users orient themselves to a page and help them navigate easily to various sections of a page.
They also provide an easy way for users of assistive technology to skip over blocks of content.
