    Have you ever ranked with fully or slightly duplicate content? Or duplicate content may bring penalty for the website or specific pages? Any experience on this?

    Yes, Low Quality/Duplicate Content can lead to Thin Content Penalty!

    But again, this penalty is quite rare compared to other google penalty.

    I've ranked with this:
    1. First half of the page: Duplicate content verbatim
    2. Second half of the page: The same content run through a content spinner. If you want to be sneakier/black-hat-ier, you can hide this part under another element or make the text white or whatever.
    You can also rank fairly easily like this (essentially syndicated content):
    1. Original intro of about one paragraph - approx 100 words or so. Ex: "I ran into this article on [subject]. The info about [blah blah] would be useful to [blah blah]. Here's the article:"
    2. The duplicate content verbatim
    3. Original conclusion. Similar to the intro in concept.

    Slightly duplicate content is ok, but you can always use an article spinner to make it unique.

    Duplicated content is often not manipulative and is commonplace on many websites and often free from malicious intent. Copied content can often be penalized algorithmically or manually. Duplicate content is not penalized, but this is often not an optimal set-up for pages, either. Be careful ‘spinning’ text to make it unique.

    It depends on the nature of your site. If you run a press release site or a quotations site, a high level of duplicate content is expected.

    Duplicate content used to work marvelously in the past. Then duplicate content + mass letter replace (jumbled letters like | = L ), those used to work well. But it looks like in the long run, the search engine will wisen up, and get those rubbish content out in the end. In the end, those well written articles that have traffic became the winner.
