A lot of folks think the more keywords they fit into their METa tag the better ---BOOOOO WRONG. It will actually hurt your rank. A LOT. yup . haha, i know, i know...but hey! life is still good, right? Ok What you HAVE TO DO: when making the keyword selection is to look at how many website compete for the same keyword: For example: if you decide to choose keyword "widgets" you will probably find around 80,000,000 something like this..but if you live in detroit, you might consider : Detroit widget and so on. YOU CAN START OFF with "detroit widget" and slowly move onto bigger and more competitive words like "date". Again, i am using widgets as an example.
IMPORTANT: CHOOSE NO MORE THEN THREE KEYWORDS OF YOUR CHOICE. NO MORE! ex: "detroit widgets", "fun detroit widgets", "best detroit widgets". Thats it! GOOGLE will place more "WEIGHT" on those three keywords when it comes to user searching.
IMPORTANT: In your TITLE: do not say something like "Welcome to my website..blah blah blah. WHY? DONT do that. Instead INCLUDE THREE KEYWORDS in there. make it look nice. Something like this: "detroit widgets ¦ fun detroit widgets ¦ best detroit widgets ¦
USING THIS : " ¦ " to separate them. Google likes it.
IMPORTANT: H1 HEADER Tags and H2 HEADER tags. wow. lots of weight there. figure this yourself. just note. its important.
IMPORTANT: Your PAGE CONTENT: make sure you mention those THREE keywords in your page content and even better, BOLD text those words, just ONCE each, DONT OVER DO IT. google likes that.
IMPORTANT: Include keyword in your FOOTER. YES FOOTER!
IMPORTANT: When you upload your picture to your website , what did you save your picture as? ex : my picture? ROFL. no! save it as one of your KEYWORDS.Google likes that! so you would save it like : "detroitwidgets.jpg"
This will NOT make drastic changes to your google search but IT WILL HELP A LOT!
Hope this helps!

As far I know the alt tag is meant for blind people as a description of the image. In case the image is not related to any keyword, then how to go about it?

I'm not convinced it's absolutely best to use Headings on every page. I'm currently doing some experiments and comparisons of pages with and without the headings.
In case the image is not related to any keyword, then how to go about it?
Depends on the image. If it's an image of a stylized bullet point, then use a null alt tag (alt=""). If the image is of a man having a great time with his widget, then describe it as what it is (A man with tears in his eyes, thoroughly enjoying his widget).
