This helps you to remove the media/attachment permalink, so Cookiebot will never crawl every image as single page. For example you have 50 posts with 1 image on each one, then Cookiebot count 50 urls + 50 media urls = 100 pages. Using this plugin can save you for the 50 media attached url, keeping cookiebot working on your blog as free version.
