SEO Writing Tip - How To Avoid STOP Words

SEO Writing Tip - How To Avoid STOP Words | Curation Revolution |

Better SEO Writing

Just Scooped a great #infographic about SEO Writing that didn't mention some of my favorite tips or anything about "stop words" so I added 5 tips to the Scoop and wrote a quick ScentTrail Marketing post about Stop Words:

15 SEO Writing Tips (10 Infographic, 5 from me)

SEO Writing - Eliminate Stop Words (ScentTrail Marketing)


There is great news about the elimination of stop words. When you tune your writing to use shorter sentences, smaller paragraphs and reduces stop words your copy reads faster and so becomes more engaging. Win Win.

I sometime write long sentences; so when I saw these tips about the elimination of STOP words, I had to Scoop this.

Thanks for the Rescoop Kathy. Shortening your sentences, more Hemingway than Faulkner, can have positive impacts on SEO and visitor engagement. Marty

Great Content Curators See Patterns Others Don't So Curation Is Highly Disruptive

Great Content Curators See Patterns Others Don't So Curation Is Highly Disruptive | Curation Revolution |
What Is Content Curation Curation is an active filtering of the web’s infinite content and it may be the most disruptive Internet marketing tactic. Curators do more than simply assign meta value via categorization.
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Disruptive & Exploding Content Curation
Wish I could tell you I plan to write sentences that will resonate and define something like content curation in a helpful way. The plan is to LOVE what I do and want to share it as often and as many ways as possible almost everything after that is accident (lol). 

Content curation is about to explode. It has too, as's CEO Guillaume noted a good argument could be made that all content that ever needs to be created already has. This means the shift is to the curators.

I read something attributed to uber-curator Maria Popova. She supposedly said each time an Internet marketer uses the word "curator" real curators kill a kitten. Popova was being dramatic, but I take her point. 

Our "curation" is digital curation - the active filtering, theming and organizing of a monster fire hose of content pointed at all of us. Our ability to read and make sense of the world may mean we are all "curators". A contemporary life requires curation. 

Wish I could plan my day to create another piece of content as well received and helpful as this post, but it doesn't work that way. Better to focus on digging the ditch that needs digging than worrying too much about "viral marketing" or "legacy" content (is my thinking :). M

Content Marketing Is Not Writing Blog Posts Every Day, It Is All About ROI

Content Marketing Is Not Writing Blog Posts Every Day, It Is All About ROI | Curation Revolution |

The classic sales funnel has long been used to describe website development strategy.


However, the deployment of content marketing in a sales funnel with a campaign focus is a relatively new concept to many.


It’s not as simple as writing lots of blog posts every day and distributing them on social channels.


In fact, the goal of strategic content marketing should be to identify, qualify, segment, score and, ultimately, close leads in an accelerated and predictable fashion.


In order to strategically deploy content marketing it requires the right software, a defined sales funnel and a campaign structure.

Segments are usually FINANCIAL measures such as VIPs or "multi-buyers". Segments is one way to quantify groups within your marketing. Personas are another. Personas identify archetypes and group characteristics (instead of financial segments). Personas help develop creative segments make sure you make money.

Hi Marty. I temporarily forgot that our comments showed up on your wall as well. Yes, I was endorsing you to a business student because your posts can add fresh insight in many of her buisness courses. Thanks Marty for all of your great scoops and true curation.
