If the post has been used in more than one place, you should get a match.

Grammarly will apparently check for plagiarism, and there is a service called TurnItIn.

Grammarly, is an app you can install on just about any device I believe.

That is not an issue for me - so I cannot help.  If I am writing all of my own content I am not concerned about checking to see if my content is "as unique as possible" because it already is given I authored the content.

I use the paid version of copyscape which is .01 per 1000 words.  I think they have a free version, but not sure how in depth that search is

David,

I used to check, found so much of our content here and there, including here disguised in a new form...It is too much of a hassle for us to worry about it.  Instead, we keep writing, and we all our work is date and time stamped.  A

J.R. Schloemer, CRS's turn it in, is used by colleges and has a good rep as is Jeff Dowler, CRS's copy cop.

Liz and Bill Spear's copy and paste works very well too.

 

As to original content ranking higher, I think so but there does not appear to be any duplicate content penalties (just look at the portals all having essentially the same info).

David Martin - I have heard of 'CopyScape'.

Good Luck.
