    What percentage is acceptable for copied content?

    I wrote something completely off the top of my head and still managed to get around 6% copied as show on copy scape

    It is good to have an 100% unique article, but nowadays's it's really hard to write original content about dog training, Viagra or similar things.
    Google knows that to, so if you have under 10% don't bother with it.

    If you have more than 10% just put the copied sentence in to italic and put the "original" URL as a source.

    100% unique FTW. Or close to that as possible.

    Almost impossible to get 100 % since some phrases still will be the same as in other texts due to the number of written texts published on the Internet. That is inevitable.

    I think it depends on how many articles you want to produce

    It's almost impossible to write 100% unique article but i still try at least .
    Try as unique as you can and if not 100% ,you will manage it to look like original:).Try to underline or hyperlink the exact phrases and clauses to the original source . The bottom line is you re-write the article from in your words and add your content and make it original .

    At least 75% uniqueness will do.
