What Is an Alt Tag?

An HTML tag that is an attribute of the IMG tag. It associates text with an image that will be displayed if for some reason the image cannot be displayed, but isn’t otherwise seen by users. This is important for SEO because search engines like Google can read alt tags even though they can’t interpret what’s in an image.

Ex: <img src=””panda.jpg”” alt=””picture” of=”” a=”” panda”=””>
