I wanted to know how important the alt text in an image link is considered to be compared to having the same text in just a regular text link. For example, let's say I want to rank highly for 'tie dye shirts'. To be clear, I'm not talking about alt text within my own site....I'm referring to when my site is linked to from another site using an image link with code such as the following <a href=whatever"><img src="/images/image.jpg" alt="tie dye shirts" width="100" height="100" /></a>.......Does the alt text in an image link such as this carry much weight?.....and how does it compare to the value of a text link such as <p><a href=whatever"><b>tie dye shirts</b></a> - unique tie dye designs</p>........?

In my opinion, it's basically the same as anchor text. But as with anchor text, it shouldn't be spammy, but accurately describe what the image link is pointing to.
