Alt text is an important yet occasionally overlooked part of making a site accessible to all users.
It is a simple bit of HTML code that essentially describes an image that appears on a webpage so that the user still knows what the image represents if they are visually impaired or if the picture simply doesn’t display correctly.

For any image on your site, the alt tag should describe the image.

Google not crawl an images so we can use alt text for images. As you can see the alt text describes what this image is.

Alt text strengthens the message towards search engine spiders and improves the accessibility of your website.Each image should have an alt text. Not just for SEO purposes but also because blind and visually impaired people otherwise won’t know what the image is for.

It is easy for them to understand text copy on a page, however, images are difficult to read. This is where alt text comes to play. You should not include keywords if they are not relevant to the image being displayed, and if it doesn't describe the image

If you’ve built a website and started to learn about SEO, you are probably familiar with the term alt text. Put simply, alt text (also referred to as alternative text or alt tags) are used to describe the images on your web page.

Search engines cannot read images directly on a webpage. Alt text is used with to define images in the source to help search engine spiders crawl and know about your webpage images. These tags are helpful to rank your images higher in search results.
