The alt tag acts as a description of the content for the image you post. If for some reason your image is not visible then the user will still be able to see what the image is saying. It plays an extremely important role for SEO so do not forget to add it to all images in your posts.

The required alt attribute specifies an alternate text for an image, if the image cannot be displayed. The alt attribute provides alternative information for an image if a user for some reason cannot view it (because of slow connection, an error in the src attribute, or if the user uses a screen reader).

Most of the major search engines are text-based; they can't read images and videos. This is when alt tag comes into play: it helps crawlers 'read' your images and it's important for SEO purpose.

ALT tags are used to define the meaning of the image. Google do not understand the meaning of the image, so we need to put alt tag and description to explain to the google bot, what is this image all about.

The ALT tag adds a text description to an image on a Web page, and should be used for all images, graphical bullets, and graphical horizontal rules. The alt text within the ALT tag should let the user know what an image’s content and purpose are.
