Joomla and indexing images for search engines

How much time did you spend adding correct ALT and TITLE tags for images of your Joomla website? If more than 5 seconds - next info can be interesting for you.

Joomla disallows indexing of images from /images and /templates folders by default, take a look into standard /robots.txt which comes out of the box:

Disallow: /administrator/
Disallow: /cache/
Disallow: /cli/
Disallow: /components/
Disallow: /images/
Disallow: /includes/
Disallow: /installation/
Disallow: /language/
Disallow: /libraries/
Disallow: /logs/
Disallow: /media/
Disallow: /modules/
Disallow: /plugins/
Disallow: /templates/
Disallow: /tmp/

So be careful, all your efforts can be useless.
