    My site is like.. 70% rehosted content but 30% totally original stuff I wrote myself.

    Unfortunately when I applied to Google initially all the stuff I wrote myself wasn't there so it was really spammy as fuck.

    How can I remedy this? What if I go back and spin it all? What if I add more and more original content?

    Plz don't tell me I need to delete all the rehosted stuff! I won't have much content on my page and all my links will be dead..

    *sigh*

    Re-spin. Ad last update dates to content and schema markup... change your template if that is "rehosted" too.

    That's the problem right there buddy, '70% rehosted content' ... google has simply marked your site as duplicate content that they don't need to list as they already have 70% of your site in their engine.
    If it was a 70/30 split in your favour it might be different.
    As validseo says, you're gonna have to respin and change some things around (like the theme) - there's no way around it unfortunately. Google are the masters of their own domain, and you either do what they want or you're fkd!

    Reading what you say I can't help but wonder if you're having problems coming up with original content. If so, I have found scraping old domains useful. I tried paying for stuff here and it's either cheap and blah or expensive/good but not scalable due to cost. I search for sites between say 2008-2012 in google and take their content. Hopefully this helps a bit :)

    but isn't that content already in google? 0_o is there some way to check if google considers the stuff re-hosted?

    Well, optimally it's a dead domain so it's available in archive, but passes copyscape. If not a dead domain, then there's still a chance the site has just taken the content down, but I don't bother looking at those. Just scrape dead domains in your niche, take their content and breathe easy :)
