We are wanting to start up an image gallery for our website. The nature of our business lends itself to fresh images from our clients on a continual basis, so it makes sense to drive traffic through Google Images.
What I am debating is whether to develop our own basic gallery to be run under our primary domain, or to create an account on an existing and established socially driven site like Flickr?
Keeping it under our domain may fare us well for linkbacks, fresh content, etc. Of course, using something like Flickr means not spending money to develop and maintain the platform.
Both seem to have their advantages, very interested to hear anybody elses take on this?
