    Check your website's duplicate content on copyscape, if you find duplicate content remove it and keep fresh and interesting content simple.

    Write unique content? Or do you mean duplicate content within your website? You can use rel=canonical, 301 redirect and other solutions for those.

    Better remove this post or you can cut a small portion of the article and put a source link.

    It is always better to have unique and informative content on your blog. Repetitive or duplicate content does not help. If you are not able to remove the content for some reason (maybe for maintaining old indexed links or compatibility), then the best option you would have is to
    Add a rel="canonical" link to the <head> section of the non-canonical version of each page
    Remember that the rel="canonical" attribute should be used only to specify the preferred version of many pages with identical content (although minor differences, such as sort order, are okay).

    We don't really know how bad content duplication the OP has, but As I previously stated avoid copying whole the content instead just cut a small part then put source link. Google LOVES it. I'll give you 1 example.

    Visit DIGG.COM


    Try checking their contents then how come their google PR is 8? (Not to mention their alexa rank is 730)Ive been doing this for months already and been really effective. Its called content curation. Its not duplicated content but rather pointing your readers to high quality blog post from various resources.

    Are you referring to on-site duplication content (within site) OR off-site duplicate content (other sites copying your content)?

    No problem. Even me I'm new to this method since I'm applying content curation just a few months ago and I can see a big change in my traffic and my readers activity.

    You can try for your blog too, there's no harm in trying. :)

    I can't guarantee you that we're gonna have the same results but we wouldn't know.

    Here's another two famous sites doing content curation and both are PR 8.
    http://www.reddit.com/
    https://delicious.com/

    See how they dominate? by just directing their readers to other popular blogs which has informative post.

    @contech- I would like to share one post with you that explaining how Google reacts when you copy content from others websites or when someone will copy your content. DejanSEO team has done some experiments before publishing that article your might like that.

    Please visit: http://dejanseo.com.au/hijacked/

    It is also elaborate how will Google react if any authority website copy content from low quality website. Its very interesting.

    let me clarify that content curation isn't just a copy paste method which be classified as a duplicate.

    Clearly the test is copying the WHOLE article from other established blog which wouldn't surprise me why the site isn't index in serps and was marked as a duplicate.

    What I've been doing is completely different. For example my article would be about "Best television brand" then my curated topics would be about "Sony television review", "Samsung television Review", etc.. with its source links for my readers to view, Basically I'm linking them to Information they need and the most important part is adding my OWN comments/suggestions on the article itself.

    The internet is already full of content creators, what the internet needs is SOMEONE who will filter out this SH!TTY topics and Find the USEFUL ones and showcase it to the people that needs the specific informations they need.

    Now, How does it relate to duplication?

    What kind of duplicate content issues do you have? Are they related to site architecture or copied content from other sites?
    I'm currently working with a client who's site architecture is terrible and they have 3+ versions of the same page (the site has over 10,000 active pages not including duplicate ones). Its a nightmare.

    Well, duplicate content also works as long as Google doesn't see it.. I managed to run few sites based on content from ezinearticles, and I put Adsense on all the sites, when my Adsense was banned due to problem in one site, my all the sites were removed from index...

    We can only check the content for duplicate but can't eliminate it with copyscape..

    but we can atleast know which part of the content is duplicate and paraphrase that again. Using software to spin the article is not a good idea. Doing it manually is the best and the only option.

    Do you mean you have duplicate content on your site or are you asking how to avoid duplicate content? Either way, I suggest you read the Google Webmaster Help page on duplicate content so that you will know how Google looks at duplicate content.

    One of the ways to avoid duplicate content is to use Copyscape and make sure there are no other copies of your article (if it's a spun article). If you've already published the same article on another site, then you can still use the same article by presenting it in another way, like using the info on that article and creating a slideshow or a podcast.

    Hope that helps. Have a good day!
