    Hi Guys,

    Can you tell me what is classed as duplicate content?
    Of course a copy word for word is duplicate but would something like the following be duplicate? or is the how i would write duplicate content?

    My original content reads:

    - London is a fantastic city with lots of places to see.

    And if i rewrite as ....

    - A amazing city, London has many places to visit.
    - London, with all its places to see is a great city.

    Are the 2 'rewrites' above ok? or is this duplicate content?

    Thanks inadvance.

    You'll be ok, that isn't duplicate content.

    Just rewrite each sentence of your article three times. That should get you over the 30% originality that google likes.

    I'm not an expert in here, but it seems a lot of the duplicate content checkers use 3 word strings.

    You can check out dupefree to check your content for originality. Personally I think it is a bit hyper sensitive for article submission rewrites, but you can get the basic hang of rewriting using it.
