I'm planning to start a football (soccer) news site. I hope to monetize it with Adsense and Facebook Audience Network
I hope to spin articles from multiple news sources. As this is a sports website images of athletes are needed so I have to use stock images without license.
I'm not afraid of getting sued because I live in Asia and those laws do not take effect in my country.
The only thing I'm afraid of is Google detecting those images are pirated, punishing my site's SEO and not approving Adsense.
How can I overcome this problem? Thanks for answering.
when you look for images, use the tools and you will see there an option, you can find images you can edit or even use it for your blog posts
You mean cc images, yeh use something like pexels and other free image sites.

But first call is looking for freely available Google images. You'll never know which content will get flagged for copyright infringement so it's best to avoid it in the first place.

Either that or properly reference the location of the image as appropriate.
Before you use this kind of images, make sure you've gotten Adsense approval first. Google bot sees images as texts; hence, if you use these images and apply for Adsense, your account will be rejected and you will probably get a message like this, "...Your site has auto-generated contents..."

Bottomline, do not use these images yet until you get your Adsense approval. After your approval, then you can use them as much as you like.
is not usual that adsense will detect this at all, unless they do a manual review.
but if that's the case, see if you can find a better way to get public images that can be modified

We get it, advertisements are annoying!

Sure, ad-blocking software does a great job at blocking ads, but it also blocks useful features and essential functions on BlackHatWorld and other forums. These functions are unrelated to ads, such as internal links and images. For the best site experience please disable your AdBlocker.
