    Got a couple of MNS and I'm using pictures from Google Images to furniture them. Is it possible to get a penalty for this since they are not my own?

    Cheers

    If there was a penalty, celebrity, tech or any kind of news site would not rank very well.

    yeah I'm asking because I recently started a website in the movie niche. Competition isn't really hard and already did some backlinking but it doesn't get ranked for that keyword.. Not even in top 1000 :s

    Sure it does. Go to the Google search tool and then drag & drop any pic in the search and watch it go out hunting.

    If you can actually see the movies I'd suggest getting a screen shot from the movie and putting it up. (Although, more than likely people will start swiping your images.)

    Nope just using movie posters and links to the trailers. keyword isn't really about downloading or illegaly obtaining a movie. I just don't get it.. I did the same backlinking with a website that has the same amount of content, keyword comp and age and that one is ranking 3 ..
