I use alt text to describe graphics and photos (example: alt=partnership logo or alt=photo of stadium) in case viewers have graphics turned off or in case they are using an assistance device that might read it to let them know what the visual elements are on the page. I format my page titles with a brief name that stays the same on all pages but then followed by a short description of that particular page to help search engines find it.
