What % of plagiarism is acceptable in blogging?

I'm planning to create a blog, but first I need to clear up a confusion.

I'll write a blog article on "the best email marketing tools." Because it is such a broad topic, I drew inspiration from a variety of Internet sites when writing my article. However, when I examined using plagiarism tools, I discovered that a certain amount of the content matches other sources online.

Can you tell me what percentage of copying is permissible in blogging without affecting my blog's SEO?

In general, there is no set proportion for accepting plagiarised work. Typically, 5–10% is allowed depending on the length of the blog article or if you didn't do it for a specific reason.

It might be as little as 2% to 3%, or it may be much more. The more effort you spend gathering references and citing sources, the more likely your post will be flagged.

Hey,

Basically there is no specific percentage for acceptance of Plagiarized content. Usually, 5–10% is allowed depending on the length of the blog post or if you've not done it for a purpose.

Maximum 15–20% can be allowed but try to write 100% plagiarism free content.

If you have a broad topic, then you have taken the percentage of 10%.

Blogging implies fully original content. If you plagiarize, them it cannot be called blogging. You can refer to different sources or blogs or books or something else, but never plagiarize.
