Comment (by jdailey):

 Searching "Image Compression" and "Image Optimization" seem to pull up a
 few less relevant plugins and drop plugins like Smush and EWWW 2 to 3
 pages back. Example: Speed Booster Pack seems a bit less relevant based on
 Issues resolved, active installs, Tested with, and ratings but is ranking
 much higher than Smush and EWWW. Optima Express + MarketBoost IDX Plugin,
 Ultimate WordPress Auction Plugin...Great plugins just don't seem to fit
 the criteria.

 Full disclosure: I am involved in Smush plugin support and copy but I saw
 the report that some search results are not responding the way they should
 so I thought I would share my experience. :) Thanks for all your work on
