What percentage of plagiarism is acceptable in content for a blog?

Plagiarism

Yet to copy somebody else is akin to fraud and can earn you website demotions and other marketing difficulties. How much “plagiarism” is acceptable? People can also use online plagiarism checkers, things like Copyscape, Grammarly, and tools that integrate those tools like SmallSEOTools.

“Plagiarism” mainly occurs when a writer fails to:

  • Cite quotes or ideas written by another author
  • Enclose the direct text in quotes, or
  • Put summaries and/or paraphrases in his or her own words

If you have written the articles or blogs yourself, then there’d be no need to re-check your content through such a tool. Getting someone else’s work is as easy as pressing Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V. Why bother writing other content when you can do it better?
