Is Copyscape relevant to me if I'm not using other people's content?

    Hey guys. BHW is seriously kicking! :eek:

    I'm pretty new, and I've been attempting to spin stuff for the first time with Spinnerchief. I've been spinning MY OWN CONTENT.

    My plan is to blast my spun articles with Article Marketing Robot.

    My questions are:

    1. Is Copyscape even relevant to me if I'm not using other people's content?

    2. How does Google search and judge whether content is exactly the same? Does it have to be an EXACT match for it to raise a flag on a site?

    I will be very frank with you, - i'm sure people will contradict me, and that's OK - that's their opinion.

    1. Duplicate content is a myth.

    If I could I would tell you my niche, from which you could deduce how competitive it is.

    My entire website is a wordpress blog, filled with duplicate spun content, by duplicate I mean...20% unique. It ranks very well yet it's a practical turd. I've rinsed and repeated this over and over again, with low quality backlinks.

    If that's true - what other reasons would sites be getting flagged for??

    I think even if you spin your own articles it will be duplicate content. As each one of those articles will be only for example 30% unique. So the rest is duplicate content.
