    Alt text describe what's on the image and the function on the image on the page. Each images should have alt tag. The purpose of alt tag is to provide a description of the content of an image file. Google place a relatively high value on alt tags to determine what is on the image but also to determine the topic of surrounding text.

    The purpose of alt attributes is to provide a description of the contents of an image file. One of the most cited uses of alt attributes is to provide text for visitors who can't see images in their browsers. If a viewer can see your images,alt attributes will also show when the user hovers over your image.

    Alt text (alternative text) is a word or phrase that can be inserted as an attribute in an HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) document to tell Web site viewers the nature or contents of an image. The alt text appears in a blank box that would normally contain the image.
