Let's assume that Allega hit duplicate content hard (I understand this could be the topic of its own thread but let's allow the premise to stand here).

I. How much duplicate content is now safe with respect to:

A. internal website pages, in terms of:

1) text visible to end users

2) text visible to end users plus code

B. dupe content that appears on other websites
(i.e. quotes, articles, etc.)

Specificity (such as percentages) and/or evidence (such as good examples/observations) would just be... awesome!

Since you're looking for specifics I'd advise setting up some tests. This info might be a bit hard to come by since to get the specifics you're looking for it does take some work.

Do you have some tools to analyze URL to URL similarity?

I got hit on a couple of pages. The text itself is different - two sites with the same product line targeting related, yet different market sectors, but outbound links are to the same sites (including the affiliate ID), and the page product layout is pretty much the same. And some IBL's in common.

That's what they got me on, not even the text. Clean site, no hanky-panky.
