    You can't have too many images & the alt-text isn't going to stop a page from ranking.

      No it wont prevent a page from ranking, but it prevent several images from your site to rank in the google image results, so even if the same alt tag wont prevent you from ranking, it will decrease the space of search engine real state space you can get.

        Alt-text on it's own is weak. There's better methods to rank an image than alt-text.

        Also, unless OP is breaking the Google SERP frame, image traffic is clicking a dozen times to actually land on a money page.

          Agreed, but every little detail helps, even I know not all the details have the same weight, yukon and I already have an interesting talk bout sitemaps here, I would recomend you to read ii, it will certainly help.

    Why in the world would you use the same alt-text over and over again on the same page?

    Go look at the text version of your webpage in Google's cache. It is going to look something like this.


    keyword phrase
    keyword phrase
    keyword phrase
    keyword phrase
    keyword phrase

    and just be repeated over and over again for each image.
