Infographics and SEO just don’t mix. If you want Google to know the contents of your image, you usually have to post it alongside an explanation paragraph. Even then, unless you repeat everything that’s in your image, you’re still going to miss out on quite a few search results. Jon Henshaw over at Squawk came up with an excellent solution. Instead of limiting your infographic with an image, why not code it up using HTML and CSS, and then wrap it all up with an iframe?

By optimizing the Pin description, you can increase the vitality of a Pin and hopefully, direct traffic to the actual website/landing page associated with the Pin. I think it just reinforces the importance of Social in search marketing.
Great Point Sara!

In Windows 7 and later, there is already a screen capture tool called the snipping tool. It’ll capture the screen in any shape you can draw.
