Hi. The Alt attribute is indexed by search engine bots and used by them to determine the content of detected images. And this is important both to improve the relevance of the pages of the site, and to attract additional traffic to it from the “Search by pictures”. It is one of the important things in SEO optimization

An Alt text on images generally describes the details of the image and the functionality of the image in terms to the website page.

It is very much helpful for Search Engine Optimization (SEO) as search engines like Google gives high value on alt texts to determine what is on the image and also for analyzing the surrounding text.

Using alt texts for images is also beneficial for visually impaired people who use screen readers to browse web pages and also for the ones who use non-graphical web browsers. This is very much required when the readers need to understand what information the image is trying to convey.

As you can see the alt text describes what image is. It is important and necessary to add alt text to the photos on your website for search engines.Adding image alt text may seem like a small matter. However, it’s worth paying attention to if you want your site to rank as highly as possible in search engines (and attract the most views).
The main purpose of alt text is to inform the reader of what the image shows if they cant view it, your alt-text should never drag on. Simply explain what the image shows using your keywords as the primary descriptor and additional text as needed.

Crawler or bots not able to read images, but images can play a important part in how people interpret a particular web page. Alt tags solve for this by providing text which can be read by the search engines.

These are good responses. Especially the second one, where bolded. When you add an alt attribute to your image(s), you are telling search engines to "file it in this niche." [Or keywords.]
