SEO is fueled by quality content, so you want to make sure that your writing strategy is down pat. While it isn’t easy being an online writer, it is actually the website owners that can ruin SEO writing and fall into a costly trap.
If you've followed curation as a trend, you've heard of Steve Rosenbaum. His book Curation Nation was instrumental last year in making curation and curators emerge as a trend and as an important group.
As Steve puts it, curators are the Web's super heroes.
But as Steve says, it's just starting and this is just the beginning. And from what we can see in Austin this year, he's damn right!
My name is Ally Greer. I’m a marketer with expertise in content marketing and curation. You’ve probably never heard of me.
With over 500 million users on Twitter, 175 million on LinkedIn, and over a billion on Facebook, you probably haven’t heard of most people on the Internet. The bad news is that this also means most of those people probably haven’t heard of you either.
I have noticed the trend of content marketing articles on many SEO focused forums and blogs has accelerated in the last few months. It is easy to see why from several recent marketer reports and studies.
I define Social SEO as the ability social media has to help your SEO efforts by creating shareable, optimized, high quality content. Social Media and SEO need more things that tie them together.
"The fellas at SEOMoz conducted their own Social SEO study which said: While all three networks did have a positive correlation, the strength of the relationship was strongest for LinkedIn. So, while LinkedIn may be the least obvious choice for sharing activity, it is still incredibly important for marketers also interested in SEO performance".

This is an interesting and useful article written by Susan Gunelius to curate content on your blog. Here is an excerpt from article:
"You can curate content that you think your audience would find value in, add your own commentary, and publish it on your blog. As long as you don't plagiarize, break any laws, publish duplicate content, or fail to attribute the source with a backlink to the original content, then content curation is a viable way to bring interesting content to your audience and increase your blog post publishing schedule. Following are five easy ways to curate content on your blog in a useful, legal and ethical way.
1) Publish Editorialized Content that You've Curated: It's important to understand the difference between content aggregation, content syndication, and content curation before you can effectively curate content to publish on your blog.
Here are some simple explanations of each: - Content Aggregation: When you gather links to content and provide nothing else but those links in a single place, you're using content aggregation. - Content Syndication: Syndicated content is aggregated and redistributed (in whole or in part) for consumption or publishing through a third party. - Content Curation: When you review content from a variety of sources, gather links to those sources, share descriptions of that content, add your own commentary to that content, and publish all of those pieces in a single location, you're curating content. While aggregation and syndication are primarily automated processes, curation is not. True content curation requires human intelligence, interpretation, and intervention.
2) Publish Curated Round-up Blog Posts: You could publish a weekly round-up post where you share links and descriptions of great content from multiple sources about a specific topic. You can even add your own brief commentary with each link.
3) Publish Slideshows to Highlight Curated Content from Multiple Sources: Slideshows are visually appealing and can boost page views for your blog because visitors have to click through each page in the slideshow to see all of them. If your audience likes slideshows, they're great for sharing curated content.
4) Embed Curated Content on Your Blog: There are a variety of tools that can streamline the content curation process, and some of those tools enable you to embed the content you curate on your blog. Typically, the formatting is done for you, so the process is quick and easy.
5) Curate Content into an Online Video: You could create a video that includes your insights added about a single piece of curated content or multiple pieces of curated content, publish it to your YouTube channel, and embed it anywhere on your blog. Just be sure to include the URLs to all of your sources within the video and in the written description of the video.
