Alt text, the text associated with an image that is sometimes displayed in place of an image, can help boost your site's SEO (as search engines use alt text to identify the content of a webpage) and make it more accessible for people using assistive screen readers or browsers with images disabled. When adding alt text to images, it's best to use "short, readable terms that describe the image and relate to your site content," according to Squarespace. They recommend keeping the text to 12 words or fewer, being descriptive and helpful (think about how you'd describe the image to someone who couldn't see it), and incorporating keywords without going overboard.
