    Hey guys

    I am planning on hosting all my sites pics on google drive, then embedding the links to my site.

    Do you recon this would effect my sites seo in a negative way? some kinda dup penalty?


    many thanks

    I do this all the time. Some people even use a subdomain to host the files so you are not using the same database for better loading time. There should not be a problem with Duplicate content as I have not had anything arise in Google webmaster tools and I do excatly what you are wanting to do but just on other hosted picture platforms.

    No, it shouldn't affect your site negatively. Most large sites (facebook included) use content distribution networks for their media. If anything, it make your website more reliable if you have a spike in traffic.
