We are creating a movie database site and I have a big dilemma...
Shall we keep the movie posters, episodes, screen images in our host or shall we use TMDB (themoviedb API) for loading those images? What is better in terms of SEO?
I'm thinking that saving those images locally will take a lot of disk space but Google will crawl those images and it will be better for SEO. Also I can optimize all those images and load the page faster since we are using a good dedicated server.
In the case of using TMDB API will affect the SEO? Is it good to load sources from external sites in terms of SEO even its API?
