What Are The Best Resources?
Here's a great article from Michael Brenner of "Business 2 Community" that provides a list of his recommended resources for "Content Curation".
Now … some of you might not yet be aware of what "curation" is. Relax! I'm going to be teaching it when the Learning Wing comes back from hiatus! Curation is the process of bringing together relevant content on a particular subject … and making it easily available in one place for the "searcher" … without actually creating it yourself. Actually … just like this post!
Right now I can hear some of you screaming, "Duplicate Content! Duplicate Content!" And … you're right … to a certain extent.
BUT … the Panda and Penguin updates have changed how Google "weights" things in its ranking of sites, and Content "Curation" (like the curator in a museum) is now actually pleasing to the Google monster … if it's done correctly. We'll be going over all that very soon in the Learning Wing … so stay tuned!
In the meantime … enjoy Michael Brenner's list of great resources for Curators.
By Michael Brenner – "I use email alerts from RSS feeds, Twitter lists and a few key websites I visit every day to make sure I can stay on top of the latest trends and news in business and marketing. So here, I have curated my own list of the top sites of business and marketing information – some of which are great examples of content curation themselves."
Content curation is one of those things that the recent changes in the Google algorithim have made more acceptable by the more intelligent way the Google spiders are viewing things these days. Using it correctly will get you traffic like you never dreamed of before … and we'll be teaching you how to do that very soon.
