Scraped content is content picked from a reputed site and reused in a site's content with an intention of increasing its SEO value. With regard to this, please suggest if using scraped content is ethical? Do search engines penalize the use of scraped content? Does the re-use of images, videos, etc. also come under the category of scraped content?
Can I use Scraped content on my website?
Hi, Search engine is not a god that it will know that you used copied content. It has algorithm that find the copy content but it is not sure that you will penalize when you use scraped content and Google catch you. But if the owner of the actual content report that you are using its copy right content then Google will surely penalize you. So I will suggest you that if you are using any ones copyright content then firstly take their permission and then give a do-follow back link to them in source also for content and images.
