Discover, Organize And Save Your Trusted Recipes Into Collections With The New York Times Cooking

Discover, Organize And Save Your Trusted Recipes Into Collections With The New York Times Cooking | Social Blogging | Scoop.it

From "about us" of Official Website:
"Yesterday (May 13, 2014), The Times launched a closed beta of a new product, NYT Cooking.

 

NYT Cooking is an intuitive and dynamic recipe box designed to make cooking easier. The site features more than 15.000 recipes from The Times archive to browse and search. Users can save their favorite recipes to a digital recipe box, get inspired with hand-picked collections of recipes from Times cooks, create custom recipe collections of their own and learn how to make recipes with instructional videos featuring Melissa Clark, Sam Sifton and Mark Bittman, among others.

 

The limited web beta will be available to approximately 10.000 NYTimes.com users. The Times will use the beta to develop insights on how users interact with the product, and to learn from those insights as it approaches the launch of the full product later this year..."

 

Now I am surfing into site, and there are some key sections:
- RECIPE BOX
Anywhere you see a recipe, you can drag it into this drawer and access your saved recipes here at any time.
You can also group recipes together to create menus or plan a meal by creating a collection. Use the button below to get started.

 

- RECIPES
More than 16.000 recipes now: there is a box search or you can use related filters as Barbecue, Dairy-Free, Dinner, Japanese, Middle Eastern, Soup.
Other different filters with key related words are: diets, cuisines, preparation methods, meal types, and more.

 

- TIMES COOKS
They are your guides to NYT Cooking. Use your recipe boxes as inspiration for recipes and the start of your own collections.

 

Already have an NYTimes.com account as me? Login and try it:

Or request an invitation.

wanderingsalsero's curator insight, November 2, 2016 4:57 AM
This is interesting because it shows how far the concept of 'Curation' has come in the last 10 years. I don't remember much about it but I remember that in the early days of Blogger, perhaps even before Google bought it, they had a tool or bookmarklet or some little button that had certain curation abilities. My first blog was on Blogger and I remember using that tool.

Later, I maintained a Posterous blog for a couple of years...maybe more. I liked Posterous a lot and was very sad when they sold it (Posterous) to Yahoo and then about a year later those jerks at Yahoo closed it down. I thought Posterous was a very nice blog with just the right amount of features to get the job done without getting too technical.


 
Felix Grobe's curator insight, June 9, 10:43 AM



Google has just introduced "Collections", for Google+, a new service which allows any Google+ user to group his posts by topic and to create public, shareable collections of his favorite links, articles, videos and images.


To use Google Collections, simply go to your G+ profile page and then select "Collections" on the drop down menu appearing on the top left part of the page.


"Each collection can be shared publicly, privately, or with a custom set of people. Once you create your first collection, your profile will display a new tab where other people can find and follow your collections."


You can either create new posts containing whatever type of content inside a collection, or assign an existing, published post to a collection you have just created.


You can create as many collections as you like.


Google+ Collections is available on the web and on Android (iOS coming later).



My comment: Google+ Collections adds opportunity for creating additional value to G+ users by letting interests drive community engagement. This is a feature that sooner or later any social network will offer. 


Free to use.


Try it out now: https://plus.google.com/collections/welcome

Time for a New Definition of SEO

Time for a New Definition of SEO | Social Blogging | Scoop.it

SEO in the digital marketing mix is here to stay. Standardizing a definition of SEO will help buyers better understand the importance of it, the reason for committing to it, and the short- and long-term impact an SEO strategy has on a web presence.

 

Is Web Presence Optimization the Evolution of SEO?

So what is an accurate description of SEO given the changes to the industry?

 

Web presence optimization is an all-encompassing approach to optimizing an entire web presence for organic search including the website, social channels, blogs, articles and press releases. Where strategies, techniques, and tactics are still used, but content marketing and social media are strongly incorporated.

I'm not sure I agree with this 100%. I have always focused on quality content before SEO tactics. Now Google thinks this is valid, hooray. It's an interesting pyramid diagram, but I believe places too much emphasis on technical SEO. Quality content wins and Google's SEO modifications now reflect this.
