    I have recently hired a few writers, and I want to be able to check how unique they are before I post anything to my sites.

    What is the best way to do this?

    I was in a similar situation to yours. I used copyscape and it did the job perfect.

    Last time I used it I don't recall seeing a percentage but it did give info like "124" words match your text. Which is usually all I need to know, from that you can figure out a percentage if needed.

    After I post to my site, I run a copy scape if I'm skeptical, it does the trick.

    What percentage should I be aiming for?

    it seems that most of mine are 10-25 % similar to other pages

    Here is how it reads, does that means 1 % similar right? The page below has 37 words matching 1% of the page, as highlighted below:

    I agree with the others, copyscape is definitely at the top of the list.
