Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately the client does only wants the
infographics on the his "Infographic" page. I pitched to him the importance
of having on page content but fell on deaf ears. As far as putting the
content on page and using css to hide, this really isn't an option as
search engines will penalize you for hidden content.

I originally thought about using the content attribute on the image tag top
put the copy in, but are afraid that would also be seen as hidden content.

Here is a link to the page I am working on now:


Here are a couple ways I have come up with but like I said before I am
afraid I use these techniques Google will think I am trying to use "Black
Hat" seo techniques.

<div typeof="gr:ProductOrService">
<span property="gr:name" content="PC Health Advisor"></span>
<span property="gr:description" content="aaaaaaaa"></span>
<span property="schema:image" content="
<a rel="schema:url" href="
<img class=" wp-image-1523" title="Infographic explaining why to use PC
Health Advisor" alt="PC Health Advisor can save you from headache" src="
width="auto" height="300">

*Notice my use of the content attribute, especially in the empty spans for
name and description
