    Hi,
    I am managing a website, and we are leaning towards launching with some Wikipedia content.

    Does anyone know of the possible ramifications this would have with SEO? Would Google and other sites discount our site because we're not launching with custom content?

    Thanks in advance.

    The pages you have will get duplicate content penalizations - but it shouldn't affect your overall site (it wont help either).

    Correct, you will get dup penalizations.
    Brak is right, it won't affect your site one way or the other.
    If you aren't using any custom content, do you plan on making the "whole" site wiki content?

    No, we're going to have custom content but we need some good filler and that's where the Wiki content comes in. We'll eventually be pushing it out as we come up with more custom content.
