Alt tags provide better image context/descriptions to search engine crawlers, helping them to index an image properly.

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

Alt Tag in SEO Provides the Information to Crawler exactly what the image is. Because Crawler does not crawl the image, its always crawls the image text only.

Alt text or alternate text is an attribute added to an image tag in HTML. 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.
