    Hey guys,

    I've had instructed my VA to manually spun my articles. He created an average of 300 versions of each article. The average uniqueness is 70%.

    I wonder what percentage of uniqueness is safe with my SEO campaign?

    P.S: The average of 50% of spun articles are accepted by most article directories, EZA, GoA ..

    Depends on where you're posting it really. For example on your money site you'd want at least 80%+. But for article directories less.

    I would say that anything above 75% percent is pretty 'safe'. Just do not over juice the articles and submit them millions of times.

    Agree with above two. 75% to 80% uniqueness is ok for submission, but publish one article on one site.

    I don't think after Google big updates ( penguin/panda ) spun is working anymore. They need now interesting and UNIQUE posts only which will be useful for readers.

    There isn't any fixed rule, everyone would give their own thoughts but you could try things out for yourself and see what works best.

    That level is fine as long as you aren't duplicating it 100's of times

    Since I like to milk my articles for all they're worth I'll generally spin it to well over 100% uniqueness. But if you're only posting it to a maximum of 25 sites or so then I wouldn't bother spinning it more than 80%

    Web contents should be + 90% unique and seo articles will be doing fine with 80% uniqueness

    I've heard 60% but 90%-100% is the best

    Yep, that's the party line but it's their algorithm that make the call not a human being. So the question is to a algorithm what appears to be unique?

    For my main site I use 100% unique articles but for tier links I normally use 50-70%....for me it works well.

    As it is a huge quantity of spun, so 70% seems to be fine.

    Depends how many spun articles I'm throwing out there, and what level I'm using them on.

    Money site: 100%
    Tier 1: 85%+
    Tier 2: 50-70%+

    I don't about the others, but I try to use 100% unique and copyscape passed articles for my money site.

    And at least 95% unique articles for the Tier 1.
