New Scoop.it SEO URL Feature Warning
Just discovered you can change your feed URL in the new Scoop.it. I applaud handing this level of control over to the user community even while it scares me.
It scares me because if your Scoop.it feed has been brewing inside the giant coffee pot that is Google for any time it has established PageRank, links and patterns.
I contemplated changing Startup Heroes to Startup Revolution. That would not be advisable since my Scoop.it Startup Heroes feed has PageRank of 3 and is sitting at #2 (absolute) on the phrase "startup heroes".
If I felt like I had to have Startup Revolution better to create a new Scoop, rename the cosmetic elements on Startup Heroes back to the way I set it up.
Addition is always better with Google than subtraction or change. Using the new Scoop.it URL control feature to change
"Startup Heroes" would have eliminated all that Google-juice (hard to get so NEVER toss away).
The moment the URL changed ALL Google value would be wiped clean. So be very careful with how you use this new Scoop.it URL control feature.
