    Alt text strengthens the message towards search engine spiders and improves the accessibility of your website.Each image should have an alt text. Not just for SEO purposes but also because blind and visually impaired people otherwise won’t know what the image is for.

    When you type something in alt tag, it represents that image, that's why so many company logos will be appear in google images, just by typing the company name, because they writes the company name in alt tags. Title tag is for user friendly purpose, alt tag is for seo friendly and seach engine friendly purpose.

    Search engines cannot read images directly on a webpage. Alt text is used with to define images in the source to help search engine spiders crawl and know about your webpage images. These tags are helpful to rank your images higher in search results.
