So I like to post a lot on forums. And often times, I'll link images. I usually use imgur as the image provider. But this thought just came into my head. Would it be a good idea to have the image on a page of site, thereby increasing my site ranking (right now, I'm the only person who's ever been on my site hah). So basically, instead of linking http://i.imgur.com/veCBW.p ng, I would link mysite.com/pagethatincludestheimage . And inside it would just contain img src of the image.
It would basically appear exactly the same.
Is this a decent idea? Is there any other way it may help my site? Btw, I also use amazon s3, so hotlinking will not be an issue.
