How Content Curation Can Improve Your Search Rankings - giving search engines (and people) what they want

How Content Curation Can Improve Your Search Rankings - giving search engines (and people) what they want | Local Search Marketing | Scoop.it

Curation also helps significantly in any Content Marketing strategy, which - as top blogger Neil Patel reminds us - is often the starting point to improve your Search Rankings.

 

A great read that I discovered through Antonino Militello on http://www.scoop.it/t/seo-and-social-media-marketing
