    Alt is not a html tag but an attribute in IMG tag. It display a text for an image, if the image cannot be displayed. Letting viewer to know whats the image. If you mean Wordpress by blog then it let you add ALT attribute at when you upload an image.

    ALT Tags are used for optimized Image in the website and this tag is a bit of HTML which describes what the image is, so that if the image doesn’t appear it appears as text.

    Example

    <img src=”http://abc.com/image/xyz.jpg” alt=”SEO company India” width=”459″ height=”577″ >

    It is a good tip to use alt tag, so google can rank the image in Image Search. So if you have a lot of images you can put a keyword related to that image and you may get traffic from Google images.

    Alt tag in image will help you to get traffic from google images. If the keyword is matched with your images than visitors visit your website. I am almost getting around 45% traffic from google images but i suggest you to give your keyword like this - walmart-coupon-code . Give "-" dashes, this is called image optimization for seo.

    Alt tag is an html tag which is used for images. Search Engine spiders or bots can't read the images, so alt tag describes. what is the image about. Alt tag also works for users, when images doesn't upload properly.

    An alt text or alternate text is an attribute added to an image tag in html. This will appear inside the image container when the image can't be displayed. It helps the search engines understand what the image is about. It's also helpful if an image can't be found.
