    Exclamation Unique Content Question


    Unique content is essential in google .. But i am a bit confused .

    .. i have just launched a country Portal and a movie Site ,
    In the country Portal , i put local news and International news and many other stuffs , As you can understand the local news and the Inter news will be a bit similar to many of my competitors , as news cannot be changed .. So is this an example of duplicate content and will i be penalised?

    In the movie site , there are news of actual movies , forthcoming movies etc , this time also , the content will be similar to my Competitors , What can i do in this case to make the content unique as a movie will have same story in all sites , i cannot change this ?

    Also if i take an existing article from a site , i changed it a bit into my own words , will this be counted as duplicate site?

    Thx in advance

    As long as you don't literraly take over the article and rewrite a certain %, you should be ok. What the certain % is, is not quite clear, but if you rewrite it in your own words it should be fine.

    A tool I like to see how similar pages are: http://www.webconfs.com/similar-page-checker.php

    Do we have any tool that check can show me the sites that have similar content as mine...
    I do not want to compare 2 sites.. I want to get the list of sites that have same content as mine..
