For Theme Developer:
Want to add lazy load to images in your theme? You only need to do some small modifications. Add class “lazy” and modify the “src” like this:

<img src="data:image/gif;base64,R0lGODlhAQABAAAAACH5BAEKAAEALAAAAAABAAEAAAICTAEAOw==" data-src="Echter SRC Pfad" class="pb-seo-lazy" />

I used to love SEO Friendly Images original plugin, but it stopped working. Thanks for making it work again and improving it!

I was in need of a plugin that puts automatically "alt" ans "title" tags using Post Title and Post Tags. Other plugins failed on this simple task. This one works and is very, very simple to use! I love it!

The plugin is very good and does what it promises, but I had to deactivate it after just 4 days. The load on my server went from 1.00 to 5.00, and sometimes to 8.00, even with a dedicated server and WP-Rocket installed. Not acceptable.

Installed the plugin, went to the settings page as directed, and it crashed.
