    Image description ALT tag

    Is there any likely negative issue from introducing a keyword to an image that in itself has nothing to do with the keyword?

    e.g. ALT:"happy senior couple have financial security" if the image is just a smiling senior couple and the keyword is "financial security"

    i think your Alt tag should be same with your keyword and then it will be helpful for your website, however it is not a complusory thing for seo it is an essential thing.

    The image ALT tag is used to give your .jpg, .png or .gif images a description. The tag is easy to add and doesn't require any HTML coding that is complex. Using this tag will also get you some search engine optimization mileage. Therefore, you have nothing to lose and web traffic to gain by using this SEO technique.

    better avoid such practice, as it would not be offering a good user experience. Leave the image as it is, if you do not have any relevant keyword for the same..

    You should probably put the image ALT tag the same as your keyword, therefore increasing your SEO efforts and maybe the image will appear in Image Search Engines for your keyword therefore getting you more traffic
