What Is Content Curation And How Will It Help My Web Site
Content curation is what you do when you find the best content for the subject matter on which your
site is based and then publishing it for your visitors. You are in essence tracking down excellent
content and then putting your own spin on it. You won't want to continually be using the same source,
but you want various sources, to keep your material interesting. Do not limit yourself to web articles
either, you can curate videos, graphics, magazines, and more as long as you properly credit the
If you curate, you don't publish the entire piece on your site; you just publish a part of it. Then link to
the remainder of the work so that if your site visitor wants to know more, they can do that very easily.
The goal is to create the best site with the best content. Whenever you take something from another
site, make sure you mention where the article is coming from and who the author is. Make use of
block quotes to set the part of the piece apart from your own statements. Any time you outlink to an
original, have that original open in a new tab for the reader so that the reader does not have to leave
your website. Some websites are not going to let you copy the article sections, even if you take the
article resource box with it so be sure you have permission before you curate.
One reason you should use curation, is because you want the content on your site to get to page one
of Google. If you can't get there, you don't have to be concerned about earning money. Search
engines favor fresh content and by practicing curating, you are choosing work you know is great and
freshening it up with your own opinions and ideas. This really works better than creating your own
content, and a lot better than using PLR articles. By utilizing content curation, marketers will have an
easier time obtaining content in their chosen niches, which will get updated as regularly as possible.
Article curating also will help you with SEO since you will constantly be linking to web sites of
Although your objective might be to generate an income on your site, the primary goal should still be
to help your visitors by offering up excellent content. At times this means sending them elsewhere,
especially if it helps them find the things they've been searching for. You'll not always know how one
has found his way to your site or why they stay for lengthy periods or keep coming back repeatedly.
Same thing when working to get them to purchase the products you are offering.
As long as you're offering up the best content you can find, you will keep your visitors happy. If you
publish a newsletter you know that many of your website visitors will opt in to it. If you are always
adding content to your site you will build a following and, sooner or later, you'll start making money.
Just keep on trying to give your visitors what they need.
