    How quickly can I remove the penalty if I immediately have my content rewritten? Do I just resubmit my site to Google and expect the penalty to be removed?

    Thanks

    Don't rewrite your content ever, it will cause more damage. Also tell us here more about this case?
    Maybe you are fine, maybe it's just a google dance

    I just copied and pasted the reviews of someone else's niche review blog onto mine. How could it possibly cause more damage? I don't want to have copied reviews on my site anymore...

    This is my main site with my affiliate links.

    I'm trying to find out from people with experience in this how I can recover or if I need to make a new site.

    Here is my experience, take it for what its worth.. I have an authority site in a sports niche... I created dozens of unqiue posts and was ranking for several keywords. After some time I got bored and had posts and videos going to my site on autopilot (dup content) after about 4 weeks, the site disappeared from SERPS.. Well like you I figured "CRAP, DUP Content penalty" so I removed about 75% of the DUP content. In about 4 days the site was right back where it was before I got smacked around.

    So while this is not a scientfic test, in my experience removing DUP content and adding new unique DOES help...

    If you have duplicate contacts, I will recommend you hire good content writer and write unique content.
