Anchor text from incoming links... What about images? crobb305 msg:177282 3:23 am on May 2, 2003 (gmt 0) Does Google count alt tags on images (company logos) linked to my site as "anchor" text?

I thought there was a discussion last update that Google does not pay attention to Alt tags anymore?
Is this true?
Hope not because I have the same Logo issue.

Hmmm. So I guess if another site links to mine using an image, there is no way to include some sort of anchor text. cheater copperpot msg:177287 12:00 am on May 3, 2003 (gmt 0)
If you read on in that post i believe it is determined that ALT text DOES count as anchor text when used with an image WITH a link. They are saying ALT text DOES NOT count for on page optimization if the image has no link (ie stuffing every image on your page with alt text)..
