    Its good for SEO purposes. Google can scan alt-text from images and the filename of the image.

    So for example if you have an image of a dog in a page that is selling dogs. A wise thing to do is, name the file name of that specific picture to something like dogs-for-sale.png and add a short description with your keyword of that particular page.

    What Ariseo said, plus getting ranked on Google Images. Lots of traffic from it.

    Also, I find that having media along with text is good for your "score". Video, pictures... all help. If they're optimized and have to do with the subject, even better.

    Description/alt text etc. is the best way for you to tell Google and other SE's what the pic is all about.

    Description is very important, for seo point of view, and even in google images, it makes easier to pull data. It's good for you.
