Can I plagiarize my own content?

Quick question. I am planning to set up another page with a partial copy of my other page, will it be plagiarized?

not plaigerized if its your own unique content. plaigerism is when you steal someone elses content and claim it as your own. However, there can be a duplicate content penalty for posting the same content different places. the way to handle this is to take a piece of the older content, and add some new content to it so that it isn't a full exact copy of the same content.

It would technically be self-plagiarism. You would need to rephrase it

Plagiarism generally involves using other people's words or ideas without proper citation, but you can also plagiarize yourself. Self-plagiarism means reusing work that you have already published or submitted for a class. ... Self-plagiarism misleads your readers by presenting old work as completely new and original.

If it's your own content it will not be plagiarism, users just will be able to see it in different places

Hello, if you set up another page with a partial copy of your other page it definitely will be plagiarized.

I am not sure that it may be called a plagiary if you borrow your own material.

It won't be considered plagiarism per se, as you are using the content that you personally wrote, so nobody is affected here, but if you use the same or similar content on more different sites on the internet, it can be seen as duplicate content and that would also be a pretty bad thing from the perspective of algorithms, so the better idea would be to try to adjust texts a bit and make slight modifications.
