Valuable Inventory Scraped Content is a new AdSense policy violation which people are getting when they are applying for AdSense. We already have discussed  Valuable Inventory Under Construction and Valuable Inventory No Content in our recent article.

In this article, We will talk about  “How to fix Valuable Inventory Scraped Content Adsense policy violation error? “

These days people are in a hurry, specially new bloggers. They want to earn very fast but they don’t want to work smarter.

Readers, please keep these things in mind “Blogging is a business which requires smart work, discipline and strategy to get it on the floor”.

It also requires patience. It is not something which will start generating money for you from it’s initial days.

You will not get tons of money on a table turn

So, before going for AdSense approval. Make sure your website is completely developed. Your website should have unique contents. I said unique it simply means written by itself, not copied, spinned or scraped from other articles.

Contents should be advertiser friendly and also keep your readers interest on top of your blog priority.

This will help you create a brand image.

Now let’s see the Valuable Inventory Scraped Content Adsense Violation in detail.

What is Scraping in Blogging?

Some of the Webmasters from us, use content, taken (scraped) from other sites. They just modify it slightly, use some synonyms and republish it. This is not toleratble by Google. They want authentic content from you.

Sites from which contents taken are reputable sites in most cases.

Here, they fail to produce unique contents.

I have also seen some people who do auto blogging and who use scrappers to perform scrapping or in other words content misplacing.

Some example of Scraped content includes:

1. Without adding any original content or value, sites that copy and republish content from other sites.

2. Sites that copy content from other websites, modify it slightly, and republish it.

3. Without providing some type of unique organization or benefit to the user, Sites that reproduce content feeds from other sites. 

4. Sites which are dedicated to embedding content such as video, images, or other media from different sites without adding substantial value to the visitor. you might have seen awebsite where they only embed youtube popular videos.

See, What Google says about Scraping?

Why webmasters perform Scraping on their blogs?

Uniqueness matters for Google and for every reader out there on the internet. So, producing unique, authentic, correct and valuable information for readers will always be fruitful for you and your blog both in a long-term blogging.

To fix Valuable Inventory Scraped Content violation just follow all the guidelines provided below –

1. Make sure your blog has unique contents i.e avoid content scraping. All the articles should be written by itself

2. Do not embed or attach unnecessary files to your blog content. Especially I will suggest you not to use any copyrighted images, videos or other data. Always try to add images and files created by you only.

3. Focus on the originality of the content – It is worthwhile to give some time in writing your content. Write long article if possible, because if you write short article you will get valuable Inventory no content violation.

Okey Ravi’ view on Valuable Inventory Scraped Content issue

Being in Blogging from last one and half year, I have seen lot of changes in Google AdSense policies. If you read them then you can understand easily that they always focus on reader’s aspect and advertiser behavior.

You also need to understand this.

I know sometimes it’s possible to make money with shortcuts also. But it will not last for a long period. People are doing C4C (click for click), this atitude is not likable by any advertiser.  Google is also making some strong decision in the favour of their advertisers.

A new policy or algorithm change can make a worst situation anytime. You already know that Google Adsense is very strict now. Now for every website you have to take a seperate approval from Adsense.

So, far better from this is you should also realize the importance of contents and give your reader’s a different eye to read your blog.

People are facing Google indexing issues and ranking issues due to scraped content as well. It is also not good for website SEO.

Take a oath with me that “You will stop content scraping from now.”

If you do so, then there will never be any chances of “Valuable Inventory Scraped Content” situation.

      Hi, they have already mentioned that you have used copyrighted materials. It may be either images or contents. So, you have to remove them from your website. Remove every image which is not created by you. Create all the compulsory pages required like About us, Contact us, Disclaimer, Privacy Policy and Terms and Conditions. Make sure you have more than 500 words in every article.

      Once done with that apply again.

      Hi Abubakar,

      Your website is not completely developed and you already using a lot of popup advertisements on your website. Please remove them and complete your website before applying again. You might also get valuable inventory: no content next time because some of your posts have very less content.

    I also received the Scraped Content violation. My blog partner and I have been writing our own content for 2 years without copying contents from other sites. We were surprised that we received the Scraped Content violation, is this some kind of a false positive?

      Hey, Scaped content is not always about the blog post you have written or the images you have used in your blog. It may contain some other things as well which I have mentioned in the post. You need to fix them up to resolve valuable inventory scraped content. If you feel you are not wrong anywhere, then you need to contact Google.

        Do you think migrating from one domain to another can be a factor? Our website came from an old domain and when we migrated to a new hosting provider we also changed the domain of the site. I think Google might detect that our content came from our old domain. Do you think this can be a factor?

        Thank you for your reply Ravi. Your post is informative and straight to the point.

          Yes, this could be a factor for scraped content. But,It depends on the old site indexing status. May I know for how long your old site was active?

          As there is no any proper email or chat options to contact Google for AdSense issues. So, you can use the feedback option available in AdSense dashboard. Hope it helps you to resolve your Valuable inventory scraped violation.

      Your website is looking incomplete, “About us’ Page is not proper, ‘Home Page’ is not good (click on Home). You should add “Terms and Condition” Page also. I have checked some posts of yours. Have you written the content itself? Images in your posts are subjected to copyright also. You have fix these all.

    Thank you for your post. I’ve been trying to figure out how to fix my Adsense Policy Violation of Valuable inventory: Scraped content so that I can get approved. Unfortunately, I can’t find a single bit of advice to help me. All the posts are my own and do not appear on any other website. All images are from stock image sites, either purchased by me or available for free use. I have about 35 blog posts in the Health and Fitness niche. I do have some affiliate links, mainly to Amazon.
