'Alternative text' to an image is merely a text that we increase the image qualities so that it may be found in certain situations. You might have realized that an alternate text is shown up for a specific picture whenever your Web connection appears to have problems or when the pictures are made of through the browser. In either case, it's often a good idea to include an alternate (alt) details about the pictures.

well, the alt attribute is listed in google's guidelines and therefore if you want to walk along the google's guidelines then you should probably use it. Using alt attribute makes search engines understand what the image is all about and therefore if anyone searches for that description which you give in, google displays your image. Its a part of image optimization technique. So if you want to get traffic from image searches, you should probably optimize your image. And for the length of the attribute, well, you should keep it as short as possible but make sure you don't add pure keywords in the tags or descriptions.

Google bot can't crawl the image and in Google guidelines or in W3C guidelines alt tag is specified in image tag.Google crawl the text that's why we place the alt tag in image tag so that google recognise which image is placed

Alt text is important to SEO because it gives more space to SEO so that the google don't penalize you.
