    Hey guys !

    I have created my account a couple years ago but wasen't really active till 2-3 weeks ago.

    I am trying to make some money with adsense on a wordpress blog.

    I would like to know if it's legal to copy someone post from another site, and put it on my website? I have added a link to the original post on every post I copied, I don't know if it can help?
    Can I get in trouble for doing this?

    Because ive seen some post here saying that they make fake site and they copy a couple post from other website then they do their things.

    Thanks for any help ! :)

    If you're trying to do this with Adsense, you're definitely going to run into problems, regardless of legality.

    Ok, well at the moment it's working properly with adsense (well I think).
    My website got some hits (really low like 20-50) but my adsense is always staying at 0 even if I have 2-3 clicks.

    I have arround 30 post copied from other website, but I don't have any alert or recieved any message.

    So if I understand, I will get in trouble with adsense for doing that but I can't get in trouble with the author of the real article?

    And if I spin the article, can I still get in trouble with adsense?

    Did you read the TOS when you applied for adsense.

    You shouldn't do this or your account will be suspended.

    You applied for Google adsense. Google means it is powered by Google . So if you copy content you are making a trash useless sites on the internet and your account will probably get suspended.

    As others have said, this will result in your adsense account getting suspended, usually, right before you are scheduled to receive your first payment.

    Alright I understand.

    I was actually regrouping every good guide I found about my niche on my website, but if you guys say that I can get suspended for this, ill stop it right away.

    Thank you for lighting me up on this :) !

    At least find some automated tool which will rewrite your articles if you don't have money to find rewriter.

    What about finding a partner in this

    Yeah that was one of my question that didn't get answered!

    If I spin all my article, is this adsense safe or I still can get banned?

    Also, what do you mean mhassni about a partner?

    Thanks for your answer :)

    Yeah, don't copy anything from web. Write your own or hire some writers. Site owners may file DMCA complaint against you.
    Wait for some weeks but do good work. Give fresh contents to your readers

    Aggregating content is not a crime.Since you are giving a link back to original author,its all fine.If you also do some good research, you can make pretty good Adsense money from less traffic than you think.Use the right keywords,while you are aggregating.Mix your site with some original content of yours.

    Alright ive read about aggregating content since I didn't know about it. It look's like a good solution for my problem. I also found content curation. I am still looking what both of them really mean and what's the difference.

    Do you guys have any opinion on this?
    and should I keep going this the "right" way or should I just change my plan?

    I think I can also spin my content, I don't know which strategy I should use

    You really don't have to worry about any legal recourse since its content that is being put out for free, and no one is going to make anything more than a DMCA notice(which isn't even a big deal to get). The only problems you would face without spinning or rewritting is a google adsense ban as well as duplicate content penalty.

    I recently created its own search engine.

    If you are referring to google it legally, because Google also copy the content of all people.
    If you are referring to the company where the content is illegal.

    But if you have your own search engine, it is legal

    Copying content is illegal and your adsense account too be in dangerous. Never copy from other blogs as long as they offered for free to copy. We may think spin articles and create content easily, but it is hard when we are not a fan for that niche.
    I suggest you never copy or rewrite the someone articles as it js a bad habit for us.
