Sources and Tags: Dennis O'Connor's Curating Secrets | SpisanieTO | Scoop.it

There's no question that Dennis O'Connor has found much success on Scoop.it. It wasn't all coincidental, though. Dennis shared with us two of his best curation secrets and tricks:

 

1. Develop multiple sources for your topics
It's important to carefully think through the keywords that you set for your topic so that Scoop.it can crawl the web and provide you with interesting and relevant content and inspiration. In addition to taking full advantage of this, Dennis also uses other tools like Twitter, StumbleUpon, and Prismatic to find content to share on Scoop.it. Once he finds the content he wants to share with his audience, he uses Scoop.it as his social media hub to add value to that content and share it everywhere.

 

2. Tag your posts
Dennis takes a lot of time to tag each of his posts. This allows him, he explained, to assemble publications based upon his tagged topics. When he's using his information on Scoop.it for his E-learning classes, it's easy for him to filter his Scoop.it pages based upon different subjects and easily compile a list of posts and articles on appropriate topics to provide to his students. Something interesting that Dennis does with his tagged articles is to pull them by subject and create "special editions" of his topics on his blog for special classes and events that he is teaching.

The one decision we all make constantly. Or why we must curate or die in 2015. | Scoop.it Blog

The one decision we all make constantly. Or why we must curate or die in 2015. | Scoop.it Blog | SpisanieTO | Scoop.it

It’s interesting to see that content curation is evolving from an opportunity to a necessity as Julia McCoy from ExpressWriters recently noted in the Search Engine Journal explaining how we must curate content in 2015.

Why is that happening? Why is this accelerating?

As communication shifts from traditional methods (PR, advertising, old-style SEO…) to new ones (content marketing, inbound marketing, social media…), professionals and businesses can not only become their own media: they have to. This is something Brian Solis noted about brands a few years ago, as social networks started to become significant for content distribution, when he said they needed to become media to earn relevance. But today, this is not about brands anymore: social networks are not just significant, they are dominant. They became social media and they’re just the main way we receive and consume content. Even search evolved to reflect that and Google changed their algorithms in a defensive way. Today, this about every company, big or small and whether you think of your business as a brand. Not just businesses but professionals too have to build their personal brands and show thought leadership through the content they publish. At Scoop.it, we like to summarize that by saying that:

You are the content you publish.

But another thing changed as well: after an initial period where we learned how to like, follow, subscribe or mark as spam, we, as content consumers, are regaining control. We have tools to filter the noise, we learn how to manage information overload. So in this new world of communication, professionals or companies who want to get heard need to consider this question:

Do people listen to you because they have to or because they want to?...

The Ultimate Guide To SEO Content Creation In 2015 - NoHatDigital.com

The Ultimate Guide To SEO Content Creation In 2015 - NoHatDigital.com | SpisanieTO | Scoop.it

I’ve been building SEO-driven, Adsense/Affiliate monetized sites for 4 years now. I’ve been through every Panda update and Penguin update. I've survived a lot of them, but I've been absolutely crushed by some of them as well. If getting crushed is how you learn, then I've learned a lot.

I started out building hundreds of microniche sites with content as cheap as $3/500 word article, to creating sites that received thousands of FB, Twitter, Reddit, and Stumble upon shares - even though my goal was solely to drive organic search traffic.

One article got over 100,000 likes on Facebook and millions of visitors. It cost me $30 to outsource and I made no effort to optimize it for social.

I don’t claim to be a content creation expert, but I’ve picked up a thing or two over the years, and this is the guide to SEO content creation I wish I had when I started....

Have you ever experienced that sinking feeling when a slide pops up on the screen, and it’s just crammed with tiny text? (Or, even worse, when the presenter starts reading it to you, word for word?)

 

Slides like that are hard to understand and remember. (They're great at boring your audience to death, though.)

Social proof & the psychology of consumer reviews

Social proof & the psychology of consumer reviews | SpisanieTO | Scoop.it

So how does all of this fit into online marketing? If you can convince your potential customers that plenty of other people are using your product – service or software – and are happy with it, then you stand a much better chance of persuading them to get onboard. The message that we are trying to transmit is: a lot of people are wearing our shoes so it´s about time you were wearing them too. The shoes being our respective products, of course.

 

The folks over at Power Reviews tell us that more than 70 percent of Americans claim to look at online reviews before making a purchase decision and, reporting similar numbers, Search Engine Journal found that around 63 percent of consumers are “more likely to purchase from a site if it has product ratings and reviews”. To put it another way: if your product doesn’t have any online reviews, you could be sending away 60-70 percent of your potential market....
