    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.

    Image alt tags are something which I consider very useful in my personal opinion because sometime we dont have place to use keywords in a general word or in a exact sequence since it will look stuffed on website and people may think that it does not look good, and in a website alt tags are not visible to human but only to the search engines so it helps to put some considerable amount of keywords in the website to help us ranking.

    Alt tag is nothing but the description about the image. If the user can not see the image at least he can view the text with out delay and it will help in SEO purpose to get good ranking in search engines. So better to use the text for every which we are using in the website.

    It plays same role as anchor text plays role in a link, in case of image, as there is no text, so if you want to give the image a text then it can be given through the alt tag, in this way you can use a keyword in image in the form of alt tag, for which you can try to improve position in the search engine results. It works same as the anchor text works in a backlink.

    Alt Tag is nothing but the description about the website. The Alt Tag required as specifies an alternate text for an image because of google boot manager can't read image it always read alt tags information. If web browser some reason can't show the image properly, it displays alt name to specifies image details.

    Syntax- <img alt="text">

    The webmaster will be able to-

    - transmit the necessary data to search robot
    - attract new visitors
    - increase readers’ loyalty

    Alt Attribute is used for pack your keyword, google or any other search engine use this tag to index your image in the search engine. so for SEO point of view it's very important. If you say I don't want to do SEO n all, in that case, u can use "Alt attribute" to give a name of the particular image.
    Hope it will help you.

    The required image alt attribute specifies an alternate text for an image if the image can't be properly displayed. The image alt attribute provides alternative information for an image when a user for some reason cannot view it.

    - Adding alternative text to photos is first and foremost a principle of web accessibility. Visually impaired users using screen readers will be read an alt attribute to better understand an on-page image.
    - Alt tags will be displayed in place of an image if an image file cannot be loaded.
    - Alt tags provide better image context/descriptions to search engine crawlers, helping them to index an image properly.

    There are several terms which are commonly used to describe ALT text. They may be used in different contexts, even within this Web site.

    ALT text – the concept of adding a screen reader friendly text alternative description of an image. This can be implemented differently across document types.
    ALT attribute (HTML) – In HTML, the ALT text is inserted into the ALT attribute within the IMG tag.
    ALT "Tag" – Shorthand reference to the ALT attribute.
