How do I get permission to use a Google image for a HP article?
First: I am not certain what you mean by "a Google image".
If you mean any image that you have found using Google to find "any image", then you can't use that image unless you the owner of the image clear has written that you may use it for any purpose. If you can't find such a general permit (e.g. "creative commons") then you must contact the owner for permission to use it for free (or for an agreed price).
It is a common misunderstanding that one can freely use whatever is found on the Internet.
thanks...I'm looking for how about asking for permission...how do I contact the owner of the pic(s) I want to use...(and yes, I was refering to Google Images...but, the same applies to other places I find the "perfect" pics...again, thanks
It's not easy. A good place to start is the images on Wikipedia. Their images are mostly creative commons. Click on any "WikiImage" this could be you gateway to "learn to find pics"
As a rule of thumb, you shouldn't use any image you find on a google image search. It's best to use your own personal photos and artwork, and acceptable to use stock photos and images from wikimedia commons. If you're set on using a picture you got from google images, then you would have to go back to google and locate the picture, then find what website it came from. Go to that website and try to find a 'contact us' button or an email address. Then ask whoever is connected to that website it they have the rights to that image and whether or not you can use it in your hub. The drawback to this is that finding the original creator of the image is difficult and there is a good chance the email will go unnoticed or ignored.

I noticed a Hubpage which suggested ripping off original content and putting it on a blog with adsense to make money. It suggested that you could use the same method to make the content for a hubpage. I know that Google will ban adsense accounts for these copyright infringements. ...

I have a Hub that used to get quite a lot of traffic from Google image searches but ever since Google changed their image search design at the end of January 2013, it has almost completely disappeared. Now when you do a Google image search you get a full-size "preview" without ever...

When creating Amazon or other sales targeted hubs, do you think it a good idea to go and include a picture of every item you sell to try and snag google image traffic? Does google image traffic convert?
