  5. Mohit,
    Thanks for putting out good content man, good good stuff!
    So, I have a question.
    I notice over on some of android app development sites, you often place infographics with just a small bit of text to introduce the blog post. What advantage do you feel that this has? It seems that at least putting the text in bullet points or a good summary of the infographic would help with SEO for the page, no?
