    This text appears inside the image container when the image can not be displayed. It helps search engines understand what an image is about. Alternate text is also very helpful in case images on a page cannot be found.

    Alt text (alternative text), also known as "alt attributes", “alt descriptions,” and technically incorrectly as "alt tags,” are used within an HTML code to describe the appearance and function of an image on a page.

    Google Bots cannot process images on the web. Therefore, it makes use of the alt attributes to understand what an image is all about.

    The Image Alt text is generally considered as an alternate text for an image, which provides a textual alternative to the web crawlers to index the web page bearing the image.

    Image title is another attribute that can be added to the image tag in HTML. It is used to provide a title for your image. The text you enter inside the title tag will not be shown to user when a image cannot be displayed. Instead, it is displayed in a popup when a user takes their mouse over to an image.


    Alt tag and image titles are also used to improve accessibility of your website for those with poor vision or screen reader devices. A screen reader will read the entire text article and when it comes to an image, then it will say Image: Title XYZ. This allows the user to know why you added the image there even if they cannot see it.
