    I noticed that a lot of big ecommerce website didn't have alt tag description for the images of their products.
    Is there a reason for that ? Is the point that avoiding duplicate content ?

    My pictures are about the only things that I can say consistently stay at the top of google for. My pictures are always in the first row in google images. I use tags in my images.
