    Image url from Amazon


    Hello everyone,

    I will be using products from amazon on my website. I will change the description of products for SEO but the images will be grabbed from amazon website via their url.
    Does that hurt SEO?

    Hurt no.
    However its not ideal. In a perfect world you would grab a copy and display them from your site assuming your not breaking any copyright ruling.
    You can also display the images via a web service so in the background you read the image but serve the images from your domain. This is something I have done many times to prevent the mix content issue on HTTPS v HTTP.
