There's good arguments to both sides of that argument. Case studies are helpful, but links lead to spamming.
I agree on uniqueness. My strategy is to read a variety of sources but not write the same stories. I usually write original reviews, original opinion pieces (i.e Why Facebook should hire teenage girls- original enough?) and tutorials. The trouble with original posts though is that they're better for social sharing than search traffic because of creative titling.
Good advice on carving a niche.
Thanks for the links.
