    Search engines do not see Web pages like you do. They cannot process images, and translate them into content. Search engines crawl your website by reading the code created with HTML, ASP, PHP and other code languages.

    A page made up mostly of images displays mostly blank to a search engine. Sometimes, what you see as text on a page isn't really text. Some people create Web page designs in an image editor program and instead of recreating the design as code, they simply post their image to look like HTML.

    No. I think they only read alt tags and maybe xif info for images or whatever it's called.
