    Let's say I rewrite an article (not spin, actually rewrite).

    How unique does the new article have to be, for Google not to detect it as duplicate content?

    If there is a single five-word phrase that is the same, that doesn't seem that bad. But what is the threshold?

    Good question. I would like to know the answer as well. My friend started a site recently and he was creating articles/pages just with 3 paragraphs made up of text pulled straight from two different sites, no re-writing.

    All of his pages seem to be getting indexed and are coming up high in SERPS.

    If No one has the answer, do some experiments - see what gets indexed...

    There's so much information on the web, in Google's index , i dont think any "PART" of an article can be unique.

    I mean ofcourse it can be unique but general articles which are spun using synonym etc , you will finds its snippets all around the web.

    Google take's the whole article into consideration TTBMK.
