I have been told by Google AdSense that they won't approve me because content on my site has been scraped even though I know it hasn't. I assume that somebody else has stolen my content and so mine is being viewed as a duplication. Can anybody tell me how I can check to see who is stealing my content and how I prove to Google that I wrote the content first?

Would really appreciate any advice anybody has.

Thanks in advance

Hazel, I just saw a post yesterday on this same topic. I jotted down copyscape to check for this type thing. I see Lasting also suggested them. Good luck and have a great Turkey Day.

So sorry to hear about this. If you can talk to their support service, I think you will find out more about it. All the best.

Hazel I had the same thing happen to me and what I did was,waited for about 3 weeks and,reapplied after same minors changes,like correcting mistakes in grammar, and reorganizing some of my content, to where it made sense, I was approved.Sorry someone stole your content.There May be a WP plugin that might help in this regard. I don’t remember the specific plugin but it is worth looking into that.

Thanks John I have had a quick look on copyscape and to be quite honest I can't find any duplicate content yet. Maybe tweaking my site will help as well.

Thanks again as it is good to hear from someone who has already been through this.

Best Wishes

I am not sure how you can prove that your content was stolen. This doesn't make any sense. You can always email Site Support and ask them if they can help you out.

They probably tell you how to that or they could investigate themselves. Since they deal with such things as that. It would be worth a try anyway. I hope this helps you out.

I'm not sure Site Support can help as anybody on the internet can steal content (this happens quite frequently) so it isn't necessarily confined to WA users.

Okay, no problem I had just suggested thinking they might be able to help you out. Sorry, that didn't work. I don't know what else to tell you what to do.
