    Can Quoting Get You Penalized for Duplicate Content?: Matt Cutts | Search Engine Journal
    Everyone is worried about duplicate content. Matt answers a question about quoting and referring to the source. Matt explains blockquoting and a link to the original source, but he also discusses those that think taking an entire article from another site can hurt a website.

    It seems as if Google wants your site to show the value
    [i.e. the pages on your site need to display something original
    on your part -- something that viewers wouldn't necessarily get
    elsewhere].
    If you quote an entire article or a large percentage thereof
    or if you have a number of quotes from a number of articles
    [he says at 1:04/1:44 "quote quote quote quote quote"]
    without attribution or insight that might cause a penalty.

    If you are writing an article and you quote a small portion up
    to a paragraph with the original link then that is not a problem.
    If you have an opinion and you cite a source that backs your
    opinion or gives an opposite view, a debatable view, as long as
    you give attribution and it's the minor not major content on your
    page you are fine.

    This video has easy to follow closed captions, so view it with the
    closed captions if you have doubts.
