Adding an image to any piece of content adds visual interest and can increase engagement. But images aren't visible to search engines. By adding alt text to your image, search engines can find these phrases on your site, which improves your SEO.

Please note: adding alt text to an image does not add any title text. Alt text affects search engine rankings and accessibility, while title text appears when a visitor hovers over the live image.
