    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.

    Search engines and other robots cannot understand images, but at this time it plays a crucial part in how people interpret a particular web page. Alt tags solve for this by providing text which is read by the search engines. When Google bot or other search engine crawlers come to crawl page, images with properly formatted alt text contribute to how the page is indexed and where it ranks. Alt tags are also useful for users viewing a webpage on screen readers or browsers that can't process images

    Search engines can’t see images on websites. Even if an image has text embedded within it, search engines are unable to crawl that text. So by not creating alt attributes for each and every image on your site, you lose a huge opportunity to be as visible as possible online.
