    Alt is "alternative text" for images, if the browser you are using is unable to load the image they can display the text what you have give in alt tag which helps user to know what the image is about even if the user can't view the image.

    Alt tags alternate text associated with a web page graphic that gets displayed when the Internet user hovers the mouse over the graphic. Alt tags should convey what the graphic is for or about and contain good relevant keywords. Alt tags also make web pages more accessible to the disabled. For example, a vision-impaired user may have a web browser that reads aloud the text and alt tags on a page. (For those familiar with HTML, "alt" isn't actually a tag by itself but an attribute to the "img" tag.). Note that the value of Alt tags for SEO have been discounted over time by the search engines to the point that now it is of minimal value.

    The overall impact of using ALT tags, in terms of search engine optimization, is low. As they have become abused by webmasters who fill alt tags with streams of keywords, the major search engines have lowered the importance of ALT tags in their algorithms. However, ALT tags are a required element for standards-based HTML coding. Every image must have an ALT tag, and each ALT tag must be properly implemented.

    Alt tag is use for image optimization. Crawler understands only text. Crawler does not understand the image. SO use alt tag.

    Overdoing the keywords in the alt tags can lead to a Panda algorithm, so use proper descriptions rather than keyword stuffing
