    Search engines are not read the images and text on the images. So if we provide alt text search engines read while crawling the website and helps to catch easily and displays if images are not uploded due to bad network. So user can understand that image is related to perticular topic.

    ALT tags provide a text alternative to an image. Alt tags help blind people understand what content you are displaying on your website. For the majority of people though, alt tags are simply used for search engines. When search engines crawl your website they use the alt tags to better understand the content of your website so that they can properly index it within the ranks of their search results.

    If you’ve built a website and started to learn about SEO, you are probably familiar with the term alt text. Put simply, alt text (also referred to as alternative text or alt tags) are used to describe the images on your web page.

    Alt tag means an alternative tag. We used alt tag because crawlers do not understand or read the images they only read the text so to tell the bots about the image we use the alt text.
