Beginners are not aware of importance of accessibility/usability on the web, and will place simple <img> tag instead of semantically appropriate <h[1-6]> tag for the headings, but… more experienced developers will use SEO Friendly CSS Hiding (Accessibility/SEO Friendly CSS Hiding snippet) which is much better, but search engines do not like hiding techniques.
