SEO - ALT Titles

It may not count for much, but providing all of your images with ALT titles apparently goes a long way with SEO. Again, it doesn't seem as important as keywords, meta keywords, and so forth, but I've gotten a lot of hits from SEO checkers on this issue lately and it's been a real pain in the butt to locate them all and fix them, so I thought I'd put this out there for any budding webmasters.

Technically speaking, all images should have an ALT title anyway - specifically for browsers that do not support images or have them turned off for faster browsing. It is also good for whenever an image doesn't load for any reason. However, it's something most webmasters overlook in general, and have for years.

Don't overlook it! Not only is it technically sound, it apparently counts for more in search engine optimization than any of us realized.
