    Hello BHW,
    at the moment I am building up a site with a lot of content, to apply for an adsense account. When I partly, around 50 % use content from an eBook, google will detect this?
    Thanks for any advice!

    you can't, only if the ebooks are published on the internet, but that's why they are called e-books lol.
    google has a way to index e-books too now, so the moment you copy it, it will be seen as duplicate content.

    the best way to approve this is take some parts of the text from the e-book, put it on "text here", and do a google search, if it shows results, you know you can't :)

    It's really better suited for the Content forum, probably.

    But from an SEO standpoint, you should probably avoid copying anything at all.
    If you're trying to speed up your content generation, auto-spinning is in order.
    Or funding a content writer.

    You need to look up the definition of unique.
