What Makes a Good Content Curator?

What Makes a Good Content Curator? | Curating the World of Content | Scoop.it

Excerpted from the article:
"Sharing good content shows you understand what’s interesting and valuable to your target markets. It will help you increase your followers and establish your credibility.
A good content curator has to sift through tons of content, quickly and efficiently, finding what is both relevant and good quality.

So what does a good content curator look like?
1) Really Long Arms:
You have the expanded reach to know the smaller players with a unique perspective, the powerhouse publishers, and all of the niche players. This allows for a healthy variety of content, with differing perspectives.

2) Super Fast Scanning Eyes:
An efficient content curator knows how to scan an article for legitimacy, value, and relevance to their target market.

3) A Raised Eyebrow:
Each time you come upon something new, your eyebrow is already up, because you’re there to sniff it out to make sure it’ll pass the test. People will lose interest in what you share and you will hurt your credibility if you share content that isn’t high quality.

4) A Belly Full of Hunger:
Good content curators love what they do and are passionate about traversing the wide expanse of the web to find the best content possible."

What has long arms and raised eyebrows?

 

Charlotte L Weitze's curator insight, March 11, 2013 4:43 AM
Robin Good's insight:

 

Lindsey Weintraub at SocialMediaToday has a short but valuable guide to four key traits a good curator really needs to have.

 

From the ability to search and tap into sources that should not be what everyone else is looking at, to the ability to know in and out its chosen niche of interest and its players, the good content curator has an uncanny talent for scanning, selecting and triple-verifying anything potentially interesting before even considering showcasing in its selections.

 

Rightful. Good for anyone just starting out with curation. 7/10

How To Distinguish High Value Curation From Republishing: What Makes A True Curator Great? | MasterNewMedia

How To Distinguish High Value Curation From Republishing: What Makes A True Curator Great? | MasterNewMedia | Curating the World of Content | Scoop.it

Today content curation is "sold", promoted and marketed as the latest and trendiest approach to content production, SEO visibility, reputation and traffic building. But is it really so? Is it really true that by aggregating many content sources and picking and republishing those news and stories that you deem great is really going to benefit you and your readers in the long run? Is the road to easy and effortless publishing via curation tools a true value creation business strategy, or just a risky fad? How can one tell?

 

Robin Good clarifies few key points in his article:

1. Curation can be effective only...

2. Shallow curation efforts...

3. Curation is an effective means to...

4. The key element that makes curation work is the competence...

 

For these reasons, Robin Good thinks that much of the apparent new curation work being done is bound to be soon disappointed by the results it will gain.

 

Robin Good's goal is to help you understand how you can start to evaluate and distinguish value-creating content curation, from shallow aggregation, noise-making republication and pure content regurgitation before it is too late or someone else in your same niche will have done it before you.

 

How Do You Recognize a Quality Content Curator: 

- Optimizes titles...

- Edits / rewrites titles...

- Formats curated content with microscopic precision...

- Selects and adds relevant images...

- Excerpts selected text...

- Writes his/her own intro...

- No Additional Value...

- No Editing...

- No selection...

- No filtering...
