    ALT tag (Alternative information) - is a text describing the content of the image you post. If for some reason your image is not visible then the user can still see what the image is saying. This tag is very important, it helps Google bots to understand what your image is about, thereby returning the exact search results to the user.

    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.

    It is a html tag. Everytime you add a image to your website use proper alt text as search engines can not directly read images.
