    This must be a silly question, but I just want to know if captions on photos are considred content / are they being read by the bot/

    Say I wrote a 200 word artice and put about 5-7 photos with captions - are the captions being crawled by google ?

    Any text displayed as text (and not an image) on a webpage is "crawlable" and "indexable" by Search Engines.

    Yes titles and captions on photo capsules are considered text. It is a good idea to use captions and photo titles that have the same keywords as your overall theme or topic.

    How I learned this was one day I was researching information for a hub and I went to Google Images and I noticed that one of the photos I had used in one of my older hubs was listed under the same keyword in google images. 'So that explains where some of my traffic is coming from.'

    Not only that, but if you have an image at the top of your Hub, or floated in your first capsule, the caption of that image is considered the first text in your Hub.

    If you leave the summary text on auto-generate, it will start with your image caption, then go on to the first text in your capsule. This can mess up a well-planned, catchy intro when displayed in the search results, RSS feeds and on the Hub listing pages.

    If you have an image at the top of your Hub, hand-write the summary!
