Do you give the written text when you publish an image with text in it?

This is one of the most common errors tech bloggers do. Most bloggers do not think (or remember) to add more than just the image of the error screen capture.

If you add the text of the error message it will help others when they search, and help their Google juice.

Let's look at 3 examples:

BadExampleErrorMSG
Figure: Bad Example - this image gives no context of the surrounding areas, and without the text as well you get no google love

OKExampleForErrorMSG
Figure: OK Example - this image is great because it gives context by including the surrounding area, but you still need the text for SEO benefits

OKExampleForErrorMSG
Figure: Good example - if you add the image and this text above, you get full marks
