comment SEO - Index images (lazyload)
If so, there would be positive trades not only in performance, but also that by using href you can also create a pattern to easily control which version of an image gets indexed if you have, for example, two sizes of the same image, by linking to the canonical one. OTOH, the text around an image contributes to an SE's ability to categorize that image. So you may lose some opportunity for relevance if your index image isn't inline as an src with the rest of your content. Lots to consider.

Good catch! That base64 string represents a single transparent pixel. An alternative, though it adds an HTTP request: you could use src="placeholder.gif" and Disallow: placeholder.gif in robots.txt. I've also tried the noscript approach on a slideshow and it did work several years ago. The only downside was that since you have to do it for every image, the markup got a little cluttered.

My first suggestion is valid HTML 3.2, HTML 4, HTML 4.1, and HTML 5 and will allow images to be indexed. My second is example also serves index-able, valid HTML 3.2, HTML 4, HTML 4.1, and HTML 5 which JavaScript then transforms afterward. Since I am pretty much agreeing with your own first example you obviously misread. We used the first solution on a recent project and not only are our images are indexed, but our specialist SEO consultants approved it. I updated my post to hopefully increase clarity.
