Google’s Latest Scrapper Report

However, it asks people to report the issue by sharing the details such as original content URL, the duplicate content site URL, and search results. Although duplicate content issue has been taken care by the DMCA system, it is a slow process. Since the number of spammers or “scrappers” is increasing day by day, it has come up with the Scrapper Report.
