The Future Of Content Curation Tools - Part II

The Future Of Content Curation Tools - Part II | Digital Marketing Information |

This article is the second part of the excellent guide written by Robin Good and published on MasterNewMedia in these recent days.
The Part I that I curated and excerpted a summary is here:

Here is an excerpt of second part:
"I (Robin Good) continue my humble exploration of what I have identified as possible areas for betterment, innovation and improvement of content curation tools, by identifying and describing some of those that appear most needed.

8) Preservation
One of the official digital curator key responsibilities lays specifically in archiving and preserving anything of value that is collected, just like a museum curator does.
For these reasons professional content curation tools will have to include among their features the ability to:
a) fully photograph,
b) archive and
c) create a searchable index of any such web content, page or information resource being curated.

9) Private Collections
The need to offer “private” collections / streams that can be accessed via subscription or sold as downloadable PDF (or in other formats) will also come of time soon.

10) Full Capture Abilities
The curator needs to equipped with qualified tools that can allow him to easily clip a short text excerpt from a page, a whole web page, an image or parts of a video.
Few content curation tools excel on this front, and none does a great job of creating screenshot-based web page collections that contain full page screenshots.

11) Monetization
All these platform have an opportunity to gradually discover and identify the most valuable curators in their community and to support them by either having relevant brands sponsoring specific verticals, via sponsored stories or via paid subscriptions.

12) Content Types Begging To Be Curated
Most of the curated content today are news, images and products.
Still, there are some areas that completely lack, or offer only one or two useful and easy-to-use curation tools.
Take for example audio curation. There's no dedicated curation tool that I know of that can help me curate podcasts, audio recordings and newscasts easily.

13) Beyond News & Articles
Until now we have been used to see the work of the content curator give life to streams of news stories via a Twitter or Facebook channel.
In the future it is very likely that beyond these popular uses, you will see the work of content curators specifically contribute to the creation of valuable collections in the form of actual: books, magazines, textbooks, video playlists - programmes, shopping directories and more others.

14) Specialized Curation Tools
I expect new curation tools to diversify themselves from the crowded competition by specializing in a specific area and for a specific group of users.

Each point is analyzed with more information and external links. Read full, interesting and detailed article here:

Social Signals Can Enhance Your SEO Campaign

Social Signals Can Enhance Your SEO Campaign | Digital Marketing Information |

"People are more likely to trust a recommendation from a friend or a family member than by a search engine. This means that if the search engines aren’t embracing social media, they are going to lose out big time.


With this, Google integrated social media into their core search algorithm and in 2010, the famous Matt Cutts announced that Google is using “social signals” in their search algorithm, and they have been doing this for a while. Social signals play an important part in increasing website traffic and to obtain organic rankings and have been doing so for a while, but many are only starting to realize this now.


What does this mean? It means that SEO has evolved once again and is now working hand in hand with social media".

How Social Signals Affect SEO

But can social signals also improve your rankings? Yes, they can.

Use Social Signals or Drown
that was the choice Google faced. They could fight against the social tide or use it. Then Navneet Panda stepped up with his new machine code algorithm and Google could use social signals to see just how clean or dirty our rooms really are/were. 

Are social signals important to SEO? Absolutely. Is SEO still important to your ability to generate converting traffic? Absolutely.  

Recently I wrote Storytelling Is The New SEO (on Slideshare) because one of the secret implications of social signals being used so extensively by search engines is we must create content that engages and is shared.


Not all content is up to that task, or, more accurately, our execution of some types of content such as heavily lawyer influenced terms is not up to the task of being shared.

My advice is to ONLY have content on your website someone will want to share.

The Future Of Content Curation Tools - Part I

The Future Of Content Curation Tools - Part I | Digital Marketing Information |

Excerpt from article written and curated by Robin Good and first published on MasterNewMedia:
"Content curation tools are in their infancy. Nonetheless you see so many of them around, there are more new curation tools coming your way soon, with lots of new features and options.

Enormous progress has been made since the early days of the first news curation tools to what is available today, but yet, I feel we have only barely scratched the surface.

To illustrate what I expect to see on this front, here is a panoramic tour of the traits, features, patterns and trends that I expect will characterize the future of digital content curation tools, organized into specific feature areas.

1) Display Formats of Curated Content Collections
The first area in which I expect to see lots of improvement and innovative ideas is the one of how a curated collection or stream can be displayed to the user.
This is one of the most underestimated and underutilized areas of improvement for content curation tools.

2) Slicing and Dicing
Some of the present-day content curation tools, including, Spundge and several others, do allow you to tag and filter content but none provides a direct facility to easily create sub-sets that gather together collection items with the same characteristics.

3) Micro - Macro
One other badly needed feature, that I hope will see its way in some of the leading content curation tools, is the ability to instantly switch from a bird’s eye view of a topic to the detailed view of a specific information item.

4) Recurate
Another area that offers great opportunities for innovation and for the introduction of new useful features is the one covering the ability to assess, managing inventories, organize and curate one’s own existing assets.

5) News Discovery
The main problem with news discovery arises from the fact that quality filters and algorithms capable of both fully understanding the topic of interest, not just by way of a keyword or a hashtag but by semantic inference, and capable of identifying the relevant sources among so many noise-making content marketers reposting other people stuff, are not easy to build.
The best way to uncover, identify and identify new quality sources and content items may be to employ a balanced mix of automated search filters augmented by human curators that can supervise, edit, refine and improve on what is gathered by the algos.

6) Ownership
The main benefit offered by content curation platforms that require you to curate and publish first via their systems (, Pinterest, etc.) is that they provide you with an existing broad audience readily interested in your content. For someone just starting out online, this can be a huge booster.
The con side of the equation is that your rights on what you have curated as well as the physical ownership of that content is not under your control anymore. And for those already having good visibility and reputation online, this may not be the most attractive proposition.

7) Credit and Attribution
For professional curators the need to properly and systematically credit and attribute the content and sources utilized is not a secondary matter. Discovery of new interesting content is at the heart of the curator job, and facilitating the exchange on meta-data that provides credit and hints as to who has been of help in discovering something will increasingly be a highly valued activity..."

Scooping this to basically reference it for more tips on curating. We are all works in progress.

Russell Yardley's curator insight, December 25, 2013 4:01 PM

With billions of people connected through social media and directly connected with email traditional curators of news and other content have had their business models destroyed but it has not surprisingly taken many years for better models to emerge. 


The widsom of crowds is well known but so is their stupidity (stock market crashes, group think, lowest common denominator in election outcomes...). Better curating tools and systems are beginning to show that valuable curators of the worlds content are able to find their audience and enrich the world with deep insight that replace the extremely low numbers of curators of the past (news paper barons).


Some of these curators will be paid and others do it just for the joy of it. Collectively they will reshape thinking and ultimately the world.

Get Social If You Want SEO | Digital Marketing Information |

Social media has not only created a completely new medium for discovering content, it is also transforming how the traditional information sources aka search engines, are delivering content to us. 


Recent research suggests that social sharing has now become the number one driver for SEO rank. In other words, Google and Bing are monitoring the social sharing activity for each site and are assigning substantial weight on that activity to determine the search rank.

12 Content Marketing Ideas that Still Rock | Social Media Today | Digital Marketing Information |

Some people may argue that by concentrating more on content marketing, we are actually dragging ourselves one step further to becoming a content mill. ...Without stretching the truth, we can safely assume the fact that the very concept of web marketing, outbound marketing, social media marketing, search marketing or whatever it is, fall flat if we fail to add engaging content in it. In fact, content is the driving force behind all these marketing initiatives. But not all content marketing initiatives are great for the health for your online presence.

This video is so true and very informational. I can definitely see how using the social media can help a business, mainly because social media has become a huge part of people’s lives. With millions upon millions of people using some form of social media, companies can vastly benefit from having their business mentioned or in the spotlight of some commonly used social media outlet.
