But I was surprised to see the photo source was Pinterest?
This is great! Another source we can use!
If you want to be sure that no other hubs that you write are ever moved over to a niche site, it is okay to use pinterest.
The photos on there are not creative commons. This Hubpages article that you cite did get by with it, but it is not something that you want to emulate.
I'm not sure it's kosher to grab random pix off of Pinterest... especially of other people's kids.
Just a thought.
It's definitely not something you or anyone would want to do. I'm sure your original post was sarcastic. But, I should point out that HP only advises against using pictures that are not creative common. They do not outright prevent a hub from moving due to stolen images. You can get away with stolen images and the hub could get moved to a niche site because HP does not act as a police force on images.
They just check the written content for plagiarism, but there was a recent thread on the forums with one user who had huge copied sections on her hub which was on a niche site, so even this is not 100% full-proof.
Using pixelated images and images that are plain vector graphics (not the good kind) and images with watermarks do however cause issues when you choose to move a hub to a niche site.
Just to reiterate -- nope, not a source unless that particular picture is listed as CC or copyright free.

I am working on an as yet unpublished (as of 12-30-2011) hub about Marquette, Michigan. I found some relevant photos online that allow commercial use, and I'll include the best of those in the hub. I also found some good, relevant photos that I can't use because the license says no commercial use,...

I see Hubs where beautiful photos are used and are from Pinterest. The photos are usually credited as being from Pins. Are we allowed to use those photos??

Aside from sharing my article links on Facebook, what are some tried and true ways of increasing traffic/reads to our articles? I'm new; 3 weeks in, have 10 published and featured articles so far. I'm trying to figure out what the number on my profile photo means exactly. I know...

I have been pinning my Hubs on Pinterest for a few months now, and about 70 of my Hubs are now pinned. I have also had several of my pins to Hubs shared by others on Pinterest. Despite all of this, I do not have one single click from Pinterest showing up in my HubPages traffic...

I'm aware that many people who have take their own photos and added them to hubs have been unhappy about the "No watermarks" rule on Hubpages.There is a simple way around this - that should both protect your content, increase your traffic and not break the rules.Create a MADE FOR...
