    Hey guys and gals,
    So in the past I have had luck getting images ranked from blog posts using basic alt tags and descriptions properly.

    My question is if I'm starting a forum (using SMF if it's relevant, don't hate on my choice :p) that will be mostly comprised of image posts, for SEO purposes, would it be best to upload the photos directly to each post, use a plugin such as SMF Gallery to upload them and then insert them into each post, or use a 3rd party host to insert them into the posts?

    Any feedback appreciated, thanks in advance!
