I don't want to be pedantic, but while alt can be used to tag items, it's an
attribute of an image. And I fully agree that filenames are an important
factor. Some people say that separation of words is better off done using
dashes, rather than underscores.

I can't quite figure out how different image indexers work. However, Google
recenlty acquired a company that labels images automatically, as well as
made a service available for labelling by volunteers. So it's worth looking
ahead, as well.
