I am not sure about the exact numbers, but most of the websites do plagiarise content from other resources and feel fine about it.

Perhaps, there is no direct affect on your website's ranking, however, I strongly recommend you to write your personal texts in order to be safe from the google's regulations which tend to change over the time quite rapidly.

Much of my website content is used on other sites
Most often copied word for word and with a backlink
So long as their site doesnt affect my traffic I really dont mind
Its actually very interesting to see what other people find valuable
I havent ever asked anybody to remove anything
Hope they benefit in some way
Its a big enough pond for everyone

Thanks Graybeard, this was really helpful as I've got a lot of similar content on the same site and have never considered using a canonical url tag before

This is a great question and an important topic for anyone looking to grow their rankings. From what I can tell, yes it seems the high ranking sites can get away with lots of plagiarism in their content. Lesser ranked sites need to beware though (it's not fair but life isn't fair). Best to limit repeat content to quotes from people/organisations and ensure the rest of your writing is original.

It affects but not too much. I actually don't see any problems with that as you can simply pay to the copywriters for the original articles if you are pressed for time. It will not cost you really much, but you will be on the safe side if the rules of google will change.

How much plagiarised content affects your website ranking on google?
I would say pretty much, as algorithms can easily recognize duplicate content so you should be careful about this and never steal the content from anyone else, even if you plan to adjust it a bit.

This is one of the most important ranking factors. Why should google promote your website if there are the same texts on another older website.

Why should google promote your website if there are the same texts on another older website.
Because you paid for a Google Ad in Google search ...
That's the real reason to list websites organically --to sell ads.

Google only promotes themselves by using your content (with your permission).
