While writing a content its wise to divide your contents into multiple blocks with proper Sub-headings. In between the content if you want to highlight any line use bold letters. While ranking bold texts and Sub-headings comes first to the eyes of Search engines.

Just using a span I updated the font-size & color of the text. Happy to tell you this trick reduce the percentage of bounce rate as per Google Analytics reports.
