Pictures can say a thousand words…but the search engines can’t read those type of words.
As a graphic designer, I tend to get caught up in the art at times, only to suddenly remember that it’s not all about what WE see on the website. It’s also about what Google or Yahoo or whatever other search engine that’s spidering your site is going to see.
Some well thought out chunks of text balanced in with your amazing graphics will help others find your website in the future. Oh, and since we are talking about sticking some text in with your graphics, don’t forget to add some alt and title tags as well. Every little bit helps!
