    If your domain has more authority that the domains you're stealing articles from then you will rank higher.
    If you're stealing from authority sites and publishing on a brand new domain, don't expect any traffic at all.

    Like the person above you said whoever has more authority will rank the article. Backlink the hell out of it and you can outrank the original.

    Of course, it affects the SERP. You can get penalized for keeping duplicate content in your website.
