    Ok foolishly I thought google can't read images and relies upon alt to "read" image.

    I have used my business logo on a separate black hat website, could it lead to a penalty or anything of that nature?

    But when I image searched my own logo, I was surprised to find my other website.

    I don't know if I can explain better but really curious to know.

    You could just change the Alt and image name(xxx.jpg) and you would be fine with it. Google can't read an image ofcourse unless you name them exactly the same in "Alt"

    Google can read images. They have OCR and can read images without alt tags or filename.
