Valuable Inventory Scraped Content Violation

These days people are in a hurry. Especially, new bloggers. They want to earn very fast but they don’t want to work. They are just looking for ideas to generate more money as soon as possible, which is not correct in any manner.

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

OK Ravi’s View

It also requires patience. It is not something that will start generating money for you from its 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 content. I told unique! it simply means written by itself, not copied or scraped from other articles.

Your 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 tolerable 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 content.

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

Examples of scraped content include:

1. Without adding any original content or value, sites that copy and republish content from other sites. This is really not acceptable if you want to go along with your blogging career.

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 that 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 a website 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 long-term blogging.

If you copy from some big website just to produce good articles on your site So that, your AdSense is approved or you can accumulate some traffic is not a good idea.

Being a Blogger you have to focus on the interest of your visitors, their demands. Do some proper research and then write unique and relevant content for your blog readers. Not just scrap contents!

Process to fix valuable inventory scraped content AdSense violation

After all, this is a very easy task if you have understood what is scraping in the above paragraph.

Now, you just have to remove all those scraped contents from your website or blog,  if you really wanna resolve this Adsense violation.

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 themselves. If you are getting help from a writer then make sure to check your content for plagiarism.

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.

You should also avoid using stock images taken from Pixabay, Canva or any other websites.

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

4. Remove the excessive advertisements from your posts and pages. I will suggest you not to use any type of ads before going for AdSense approval

5. Maintain a gap between ads and content. Otherwise, it will look like you want the user to click on the ads. In other words, you are increasing the chances of accidental clicks. So, avoid that.

6. Do not add ads on those pages which have less content or no content. Like Login, registration or search pages.

Besides this, there might be some other issues. This article is very helpful for AdSense approval. Have a look – Top 15 things you need to do perform for instant AdSense Approval.

Conclusion – Fix valuable inventory scraped content

Being in Blogging for the last two and a half years, I have seen a lot of changes in Google AdSense policies. If you read them then you can understand easily that they always focus on the 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 attitude is not likable by any advertiser.  Google is also making some strong decisions in favor of its advertisers.

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

So, far better from this is you should also realize the importance of content 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 an oath with me that “You will stop content scraping from now.”

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

    I once got this message from adsense telling me about scraped content, all I did was to draft all the copied articles and write fresh unique articles. It was approved a week after I applied, thanks for the guide.

      Hi Naresh, You need to change the website design. Mostly the header part. It looks odd. I will suggest you to start blogging on WordPress or any other CMS. You are using a blogger and the design is not accurate as per Adsense guidelines.

      I am hoping that the content on your website is written by you only.

  11. I have a valuable inventory scraped problem. One of my articles was originally published on my site, and then published by a major site. Will this cause a problem? Could images be causing a problem?

  13. What can be done when you can’t use original content? My site has to be as it is for its own function and utility, it’s a video-aggregator website, it can’t be made like a blog and original content doesn’t fit with its main function which is offering an organized and selected collection of content already posted somewhere else in a disorganized and unfiltered way. It’s not fair that they don’t recognize the difference between an auto-scraping website from one edited by someone who wants to offer a useful tool to learn and practice some skill. I’ve read that Google Adsence audit are made by bots, not by human and I think it’s true because I can’t contact anyone who can help me. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you

      Make it a blog and then take approval.

  14. Hallo Ravi

    Article is amazing, but about scraped content i noticed lots of site having the same content and they get approved google adsense. If it is strict policy of google about duplicate content then why not google banned those websites which have same content.


      Hi Ravi, you write-up is educative and interesting. Going through it made me convinced that i must be missing something. However, i have tried some suggestions and resubmit my application for approval but still got the same message. Can you please check at your end for a smart suggestion and what might be wrong so that i can adjust from my end. Your help is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advanced.
      my site is

  15. Hi Ravi,
    Very helpful article. I have a doubt though
    The stock images are license-free images and can be used anywhere without any copyright issues.
    Then how is it scrapped content? And even if they are scrapped then which images should I use for my blog?

    1. User Avatar

      Hi Anand,

      You are right. But You know the AdSense is approved by real humans, not the machines. So, when they check your website they will easily say that these images are may be subjected to copyright. The reon behind this is those images are already available at tons of places and blogs. So, better you avoid using stock images or images downloaded from google while you are planning for Adsense Approval.

      You can use sites like to create an amazing featured image for your blog.

    My question is how to apply for the second time?
    I see two radio button option
    1 – I confirm I’ve fixed the policy violations my blog name
    2 – I’d like to use a different site for ad sense

    Hi Ravi,

    Nice Post! But I still have some confusion about Scraped content. Ex. If I am posting an article like How to install windows 7 on my blog in my language but I have taken Idea or Method from another big website like howtogeek. Is it Okay or not…


  20. wow, Quite interesting, learned a lot

  21. Hi Ravi, I had a scraped content issue but I had deleted some post I gathered from research. Every content on my site now was created by me but I still got scraped content message when I reapplied. Please help me and check my site. The url is Thanks.

  22. Thank You for your useful info…Our big problems solved now. thank you Ravi.

  23. Hi Ravi,

    my site : has most of the content scrapped from multiple websites. hence, when i applied for adsense, i got ‘Valuable inventory: Scraped content’ from google.

    My worry is that i currently have like 1 Lakh plus pages. I obviously cannot manually rewrite these many pages. Should i just delete all these pages and write 10 15 pages myself or is there any other alternative to reduce the damage.

    1. User Avatar

      Hi Harun, In your case it will be better to trash all content. Then write 15-20 fresh articles and to get approval easily. After the approval restore all your contents.

      1. Very nice article

  24. Hi Ravi,

    Nice article. It’s really helpful. Though it would be awesome if you check my site.
    Actually AdSense was once verified.Once I reached 10$ I was asked to upload ID Proof , I uploaded a pic of my Adhaar card but it got failed and now I was not getting option to upload ID again.

    I even received the PIN on my adress but Ads stopped showing up due failed verification on ID.
    Ultimately after waiting for three months I deleted this AdSense account.

    I changed theme and added various section and reapplied a week ago.
    Currently I’m getting the exact error as mentioned in above article.

    Can you please have a look at my site to see what’s wrong?? I’m a game Modder btw.
    I’m asking this cuz once my site has been verified already but why not this time?

    Good article
    Scrapping is bad and very shameful
    But can a newbie do rather than this because he have to write and this need to copy
    But there is an issue in scrapping, this we don’t know in the beginning
    When we apply for AdSense we come to know about scrapping and that very sad of us….
    Anyway, this is the Best article and thanks for explaining well…keep it up.

  29. Hello Ravi,

      I have checked your site. Google generally doesn’t provide Adsense approval for these type of contents. If you want Adsense on your website then get approval with blog content first and then change your content.

    Thank you for this informative post and for answering all of our questions. I encounter the same finding. I have written all the articles by myself but I have images which I got from Pixabay and I added notes after each post that images used are from Pixabay. Would you mind checking my website, please?

    Looking forward to hearing from you. Thank you in advance.

      Hi Han Bee,

      Ya, I have checked your site. I will suggest you to add at least 500 words in your articles. Other than that make sure your contact us page has a proper address with phone and Email. I also found some categories on your site which don’t have any content like (How To’s) Category. make sure to use self-created image rather than using stock images before Adsense Approval.

      Hope it helps! Good luck

    I am stuck in a similar situation. It’ll be great if you could give me some advice.
    I got the same rejection message from Google – Valuable inventory: Scraped content
    Could you check my website: and tell me where am I going wrong?

    All of my content is original.
    Regarding the images used, I have used them from a free website and I have given credits to the photographer along with the website on all of my posts, wherever I have used stock images.
    Other images on my website including the cover have been clicked by me.

    Also, I have a Contact, About and Privacy Policy pages. I am not really sure what am I missing.

      Hi Ayush, I would like to know some details about your website?
      1. How many posts you have?
      2. As you said you have written your content itself, So, my question is is it your original content you have just typed your self

      I will suggest you to write some more articles and try to remove those free images. You can use them after Adsense Approval. Other than this Disclaimer and terms and conditions pages are missing. You should add some more information on About us and Conta Us Page. If you follow all these then I hope the problem (Valuable Inventory Scraped Content) Will not come.

      1. Hi Ravi,

        To answer your questions:

        1. Currently there are 20 posts on my website. What do you suggest should be the minimum number of posts before I re-submit the website to AdSense?

        2. I have thought, conceptualised and written everything myself. These are articles, poems, prose and short stories that I have written over the years.

        Some other clarifications:

        1. Though I understand the reason why I should remove the images for now, but I have a doubt that the site that I have used for these images, clearly states that there is no compulsion to give credits to the photographers. Even then I have clearly given them due credit at the end of my each post with a clear link to their artist profiles. So, is it absolutely necessary to remove the images?

        2. I have added the Terms of Service and Disclaimer pages. Also, I have added more content on the About and Contact pages.


        1. User Avatar

          Hi Ayush,

          1. 20 post is enough for Adsense Approval
          2. Your content is written by yourself. That’s amazing
          3. I think images can be a problem. I never recommend to with either stock or other downloaded images at the start. Better you should use own images created by

          4. You have added the required pages, great!

          There is a lot of policies and the people who approve Adsense have their own understandings. So better you should try again and again on some intervals. I have seen a lot of cases like yours, where everything is good yet they are getting rejections. valuable Inventory-Scraped Content is one of the worst Adsense violation we have at this time.

          Try at regular intervals.

          Good Luck!

          1. Great! Thanks for all the help, man.
            I have re-submitted the website to AdSense. Let’s hope for the best.

      Hi JM, I have checked your website. Images used on your site may be subjected to copyright and there is a lot of categories on your website in which there is no content. Like Japan, Philippines, Taiwan. Your privacy policy, Contact Us and About Us, pages have no content. make sure to complete your website before going for approval next time.

      If you do so the valuable inventory scraped content Adsense issue will be fixed.

  42. I’m having a valuable inventory: Scraped problem issue as well. One of my articles was originally published on my site, and then published by the major site “The Mighty.” Will this cause a problem? Also, how do I know if my images are causing an issue? I use a plugin called Image inject that provides free images.

    1. User Avatar

      You have to use images created by yourself. One article will not create any issue. Google generally doesn’t mention the right causes which are creating an issue for the Adsense Approval. So, before getting Adsense approval, You should not use any content which may lead to copyright or policy violations. Thanks

    Can you please help me out?

      Hi Boldkid, I have checked your website. You r images may be subjected to copyright and the 2nd most important thing I have observed on your website is “less content”. You should write at least 500 words in an individual post. Refer to this post – Top 15 things to consider before applying Google AdSense

      Hi Arun, Valuable Inventory: Scraped Content is the prime reason which is affecting the AdSense approval now. You have to make sure that there is nothing copyrighted on your website. Along with this follow all the things which I have mentioned in the post to get rid of this issue.

      Hi Arpit,

      You need to work on your site. In most of your posts, images are more and content is very less. You should focus on unique and detailed content writing and also don’t try to add more free or stock images. Try to create image by itself.

      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.

  52. Nice article.
    Please is there any way to automatically detect post that is scraped?

    It could be the major cause of scraped content on this site, please

      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.

      Hi Nishlesh,

      Please follow the tips I have mentioned in this post to remove the scraped Adsense violation. You would have a proper idea about your content properly. Like how much content is copied? The image used is copyrighted or not?

      1. Nishlesh Goel

        Sir, I have followed all the steps mentioned above but then also I am not able to get approval same reply is coming every time from Google. Please tell me what to do and thank you for replying to me.

        1. User Avatar

          Hi Nishlesh, I have checked your site, You have to create your “About us” and “Contact us” properly. There is no content on these pages. Please create “Terms and Condition” page also. Remove all the images which are subjected to copyright.

  55. Hey man, very good article..loved going through it.
    Also, I would like to have your feedback on what is wrong with my site as I have also received scraped content violation from AdSense even though all my posts are my own.
    Your view and comment about my site will be appreciated.

    1. User Avatar

      Hi, this particular post about AdSense would be helpful for you.

      Go through this once -

  56. 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?

    1. User Avatar

      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.

      1. 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.

        1. User Avatar

          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.

          1. Thank you for your reply. My old site was less than 1 year old.

          2. User Avatar

            Okay, that would be an issue for your Valuable inventory Scraped Issue.

  57. can you please take a look at my blog and tell me what I have done wrong? I have written every content by myself.

      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.
