With all the fancy tools and graphics at our disposal, we tend to miss one of the big features of communication today: Making it easily searchable and indexable. In a post over at Poynter.org, they show how to use Google Charts and a few other tools to create nice HTML-based interactive charts and graphs, both widening the experience to multiple platforms and making it search engine-friendly.
The actual data in your graph is embedded in a Web page’s code. This makes it easier to search for your graph because numbers, labels and even your graph’s title become part of your Web page’s metadata. Selecting well-chosen words for your graph helps make it more SEO-friendly.
Graphics of the Web work across platforms. The resolution of images doesn’t appear as grainy on the iPhone, for instance, and folks on mobile devices can zoom and interact with graphics of the Web more naturally.

DataDial has a new infographic that combines the various aspects of SEO (Search Engine Optimization) into a tall-format chart showing the impact of site architecture, link building, and various page optimization techniques on your search-engine ranking.
Images are a fantastic way to present data and abstract concepts, they’re a much clearer way of getting information across and more people take the time to digest it. I thought it would be a good idea to try to present solutions and explanations to the more common SEO questions that we hear from our clients.
Granted, I think this is one of those infographics that weighs in more on the “pretty” side than the “informative” side, it’s a nice clean compilation of information.
Fullsize after the break.
