Support » Plugin: Image optimization & Lazy Load by Optimole » Does This Plugin Strip My EXIF Image Data?

    I’m considering using this lazyload image plugin, but my site has a lot of images I spent a lot of time SEO optimizing with EXIF data and I’m wondering if that data will then be removed if I use the plugin?

    Hi,

    Yes, Optimole strips the Exif data. Can you give me more details on how this affects your SEO?

    Thank you!

    I do LOCAL SEO work and so the images I embed on a clients web page are optimized with EXIF data by editing the images title tag, subject, tags, Comments, latitude and longitude and so on. The lat and long is particularly important as it ties the business website data to their Google My Business listing (Google Maps).

    Is it possible to selectively choose which images use your plugin while leaving others untouched?

    That would allow me to use your plugin on the large-sized images to improve the page speed while keeping some of the optimized yet smaller images as they are for better on-page SEO.

    Hello,

    You could tag images that you want to keep exif with something like “img_name-exif.png” and then just exclude images that contain “-exif” in the path from being processed using the Exclusion tab from Optimole.

    Would this work for you?

    Let us know.
