More Traffic and Backlinks for Your Blog: Scoop.it

scoopit
The amount of information bloggers receive as it happens on any given day is so much and so rapidly delivered that it’s intellectually impossible to keep pace. Content curation is a time management and content creation strategy that could be your best hope for overcoming the challenge.

Content curation is an editorial function

Information overload is one of the major challenges bloggers face in the information age.  However, there are content curation tools that you can use to reduce time and energy it takes to sort through the “noise” and find the right piece of orchestral music for your audience.

Content curation is an editorial function involving locating, organizing,  categorizing, commenting on and presenting the top content on a given topic.

A curator (editor) carefully selects the most relevant, highest quality digital information to meet readers’ needs on a specific subject.

Neil Patel’s interesting and informative article  How Content Curation Can Improve Your Search Rankings points out how curation and SEO are connected.

Using content curation tools to present the best selection of digital content on a specific topic will result in more traffic to your blog and more backlinks to your content.

  5. Fascinating … just not sure how to implement it on my multi-focused blog, but am inspired to investigate further. My original goal for starting a blog was to have a writer’s presence on the internet, and has evolved to a greater ambition – depicting my view of the world around me not just through words, but imagery and art.
