    Text links are the best. Period. Image links are never as good from a SEO point of view.

    Do search engines "see" alternate text attached to images?

    Yes. But it has very little value thanks to keyword stuffing.

    Please bear with me—I am new to both this forum and to Web development—but how much value is there in entering meta information in our Web pages if the SEs are not recognizing it?

    BTW, I did a Google on keyword stuffing and see that there is quite a debate raging about this issue.

    Meta Tags have little to no value for search engine rankings. But they can serve other purposes and may be useful for other uses in the future. That's why you should make them. Just don't expect them to have any impact in your rankings.
