"Because a 2-year-old can swipe their finger on an iPad, suddenly every young person, every child, is just universally knowledgeable about digital media," she says. "But there is so much more to using digital media than turning it on or starting an app."

A great infographic is an instant revelation. It can compress time and space. (Good gosh – Usain Bolt is that much faster than all the other 100-meter gold medalists who’ve ever competed?) It can illuminate patterns in massive amounts of data.

The benefits of content curation for seo

In a recent survey of 1,550 US professionals on the impact of content curation for their business goals, 65% said content curation helped with regards to SEO. Not only that but data from 65M+ pieces of content curated on the Scoop.it platform show that an average of 40% of traffic comes from Google Search.

 

This presentation explains why and outlines content curation best practices for SEO.

This SlideShare will teach you more about viral content than anything else you'll read today

You are bad at predicting virality. We are less bad (barely.) That's why science is here to make us all better. Learn all our secrets to winning the internet, one headline at a time. If you've seen previous versions of our training, some of this will be old hat. But we put a new hat in there too.

Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, April 22, 10:40 PM

A couple of weeks ago, I curated a piece on Upworthy's curation secrets that [url=/u/154557 x-already-notified=1]Beth Kanter[/url] commented with a link to a follow-up post. The  post is a good summary of the above but the slideshare presentation itself is priceless if you have a few more minutes. 


Some of the rules that you might have heard of on what makes Upworthy successful such as writing 25 headlines or A/B testing them are not just mentioned here but shown in very practical ways that will make you want to try them asap.


Now, one thing to keep in mind though: as it's been analyzed and explained in that great post, nothing will ever permanently work when it comes to viral distribution - because of the very nature of human psychology and the fact we constantly adapt ourselves to new trends. So while headlines a la upworthy will pass, the pragmatic experimental process will stay.
