The 'Graphic Feast' Sin

Many web pages are full of often beautiful graphics. The only problem with that: Google can't interpret their content. If your site has large images that contain text, the text will be ignored by Google.

Not exactly what you may want: It is better to place the text as normal text onto the page. If you can't avoid using the image, consider using the ALT-text option to 'help Google' understand its meaning.

How do you do that?

In HTML, the image is inserted with this code: <img src="imagename.gif" alt="Blue Widgets On Sale"> This will show up as a screen tip when your mouse hovers over the image and can also be interpreted by reading devices for the visually impaired.
