For professionals looking to create a personal brand around their topics of expertise or SMBs and freelancers looking to create a content marketing strategy without creating original content, San Francisco-based Scoop.it has a solution.
Robin Good: Archify is a free web service which allows you to automatically record each web page, social media exchange, video or other content you spend time on during your day.
Archify makes it also very easy to search through this archive by making it possible to instantly retrieve web content or messages you had completely lost track of.
From the official site: "Archify captures a screenshot and the full text of every page you see, together with all the updates on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
You can save your archive in a private folder within your Gmail, or simply look it up on your own search page."
From the TNW review: "Archify is a browser plugin which, once installed, saves everything that you browse online – including every update from you and your friends on your social streams.
If you search for something on Google, a little overlay will appear telling you that there are also results in Archify.
Archify is like your own personal browsing archive. In addition to indexing all the content you’ve viewed, Archify also takes a screenshot of each page you visit, allowing you to not only find content, but view it exactly the way it looked on the day you visited the page."
Being an Internet marketer for many years I’ve seen the landscape change many times but one thing has stayed the same “Content is King”, when it comes to driving traffic to a website.
As a business owner we all want to get new customers to our websites. Many have tried blogging to drive traffic to their website and due to a shortage of hours in a day they end up dropping the blog or hiring ghost writers to develop content for the site. We now have a new player on the net and it comes in the form of Content Curation. No it will not completely eliminate business owners creating content for their website but adds a whole new area of content development for a website.
Over the past two years I’ve tested different content curation sites and tools and have found Scoop.it to be the leader in both innovation and traffic building potential.
Below are examples on how Scoop.it can drive traffic and help to show the world, yes the world that your business knows your market.
In this article are 3 areas that when done correctly can drive new traffic to your business or brand?.

So it seems that content is a prerequisite to get those links and shares. Can't you get them without content?
Rebel Dekadance 's insight:
Creating good, shareable, engaging content is essential - and yes, content, not sales material, sales copy! Create something you enjoy creating...something you enjoy by knowing that others enjoy the content and take away something from it.
