Google Adsense- Scraped Content Error: How to fix it?

Why do you get Scraped Content Error?

The hurtful fact is that newbies these days are more concerned about Google Adsense approval and not the traffic. The Adsense error called the SCRAPED CONTENT ERROR happens-

  • Because of poor quality of the content (too many grammatical errors, content that has been translated from different languages, and uninformative content.
  • Copy-pasted content (content that has been taken up from other sources and directly copy-pasted on your blog), or,
  • Rewritten content from some other website. (content that has been re-written from other sources without adding any value to it)

How to Fix Scraped Content Error?

The best way to overcome situations like these is to create top-notch content. Your audience should always think your content is helpful. Also, work on your content to make it 100% original and unique.

Don’t fill your blog with plagiarized articles. Write some unique, valuable, engaging, and high-quality content for your targeted audience.

Write in-depth and well-optimized blog posts with above 1000 words.

Also, Adsense will not approve your application if you write Adsense prohibited content.

So, make sure your blog has some high-quality content before you apply for Google Adsense.
