Robin Good's curator insight, August 20, 2013 2:35 PM



StartMe is an excellent free start page builder which allows anyone to create public (or private) start pages containing bookmarks, links and RSS feeds, organized in groups and easily editable.


StartMe creates clutter-free, well designed and highly scannable editable start pages where you can easily add, edit, move around and re-order and group your favorite links and bookmarks in any way you want.


You can create as many start pages as you want and you can choose to start either from a pre-populated links and feeds page that can be edited and customized or completely from scratch.


Groups and individual items (links and RSS feeds) can be easily edited and dragged around easily. It is possible to decide how many news stories appear in a feed list and you can even switch on a "river of news" option that will combine chronologically all the news of a list of feeds.


It is also possible to integrate a search engine for each start page that will search using your search engine of choice.


StartMe supports OPML allowing full export and import functions with any bookmark collection or RSS feeds list.


Extension for Firefox and Google Chrome are available.


My comment: I can't recommend this tool enough. Easy, fast, effective and elegant. It's a breeze to use and it's so damn useful for creating start pages for a thousand different uses: tools lists organized in groups, suggested sites to visit subdivided in sub-topics, collections of people profiles in specific sectors, etc.  


Ad free.


Free to use.

El arte de curar información en la Web es más que una práctica del conectivismo, es parte de un ejercicio de aprendizaje e inteligencia colectiva.
John Thomas's curator insight, February 12, 2014 5:20 AM

Pawan Deshpande, founder and CEO of Curata, has just published an article that provides some very useful guidelines to content marketers interested in improving their basic content curation skills.

 

The article provides six alternative approaches to curating content, from simple ones like quoting and retitling, to more advanced ones like parallelizing, storyboarding and summarizing.

 

The context provided in this article circles around three key factors:

Quantity of effortSEO valueAdded value

so that you can compare, among the alternative curation approaches presented, the ones that better match your own needs.

 

But, beware. Though content marketing experts have you believe that saving time, seo impact and traffic size are key variables to go after, I remain of the impression that true "added value" provides order of magnitude greater benefits than the other two combined. 

 

In other words, to rank and evaluate the value of a curation approach versus another, I would ask: Does the curation produced help other people make better sense of a topic? Does it allow for others to learn about an issue without having to juggle and research tens of dubious resources? Does it save the reader time in learning about the topic he's interested in while providing him with all the needed info?

 

Having said this, I deem this article particularly useful for content marketers getting interested in content curation, and in learning which approaches they can adopt, besides reposting and sharing the best content they can find, to improve their "value added" propositions.

 

 

Useful. Resourceful. 7/10

10 Dead Simple Tips to Take Advantage of Google+ for SEO

10 Dead Simple Tips to Take Advantage of Google+ for SEO | Internet & Entrepreneurial | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article on SEOmoz:

"It's no secret. When engineers built Google+, they constructed an SEO juggernaut to dominate search results above all other social platforms.

There are several ways to take advantage of this SEO domination for your own benefit.

 

1. Follow your profile links:

Google+ not only allows you to link to your other profiles across the web, but you can embed followed links directly into your bio with the anchor text of your choice.

 

2. Embed post links:

Like profile links, Google+ also allows you to insert followed links directly into your posts – as many as you want. Simply insert the full URL and Google will automatically format it as a link.

The value of these links increases the number of times the post is shared, linked to and +1’ed.

 

3. Optimize your G+ title tags:

The first sentence of your Google+ post becomes part of the title tag, which is highly correlated with rankings and greatly influences click-through rates. Choose your keywords carefully and consider that the first sentence will be the first thing most people see.

 

4. Unlimited editing power:

Google+ is just like your own mini personal blogging platform. This means you can fully edit any of your posts at any time. Not so with Facebook or Twitter.

 

5. Index new content lightning fast:

If you share new content on Google+, chances are that Google will index the page very quickly.

Rumor has it that new URLs are crawled almost instantly. This makes complete sense as part of the purpose of Google+ was to replace Twitter when creating Google's Realtime Search.

 

6. Stalk Connect with influencers:

Google+ lists 17 different notification triggers that can help you connect with influencers in your industry.

Depending on the individual's account settings, these notifications can take the form of an email, phone SMS, or the omnipresent red Google notification bar.

 

7. Optimize your author pic for more traffic:

If you successfully implement the author tag and have an eye-catching pic you can often grab free traffic away from even your competitor's #1 ranking.

 

8. Test drive a G+ social media dashboard:

Adam Singer created an awesome social media dashboard that you can use for free. At one glance you can view all your essential metrics from Google+ traffic and all other social networks including:

- On Site Social Actions, i.e. Google +1's;
- Revenue per Visit by Social Network;
- Overall Traffic Stats by Social Source.
Bonus: Install this dashboard for free in your Google Analytics account by clicking here: 

http://www.google.com/analytics/web/permalink?uid=erNMqvwYQIWKDiA7dkHbJQ

 

9. Check your CircleRank:

My favorite new tool is CircleCount. Try it now by pasting in your Google+ URL to chart your daily follower growth, the virality of your posts, and even see your "CircleRank" score compared against all other Google+ profiles.

 

10. Be an awesome (Late) early adopter:

Even with it's explosive growth, only 1 in 4 people use Google+ once a month. The rest log in even less, although this number is growing fast..."

a CTA is a "Call to Action". Something you ask your readers to do specifically.
