There has been considerable dilemma among webmasters regarding the possible impact of images that are hosted on a CDN which is on a subdomain or separate website on maintaining links, traffic & SEO value.

Recently this query was raised on Twitter by Lily Ray. In reply, John Mueller clarified that hosting of images is not at all significant from the SEO point of view. As there is no SEO-bonus if you are having the images on the same host/domain.

He goes on to add that since replacing image URLs is a difficult process, you can use your own hostname for the CDN. However, you must avoid, for example, and use in its place so that you would be able to change CDNs.
