Could there be a negative impact (as far as Google ranking) if I host images to a website on a different server? I've setup a subdomain and pointed it to a dedicated address on another server. This was done to help with page load in lieu of load balancing.
I wasn't sure if I should disallow indexing in the subdomain's robots.txt file. I hate to loose any image referrals, but it doesn't make sense to just give access to images with no other content. Any suggestions?
