Content curation for SEO — from professional purposes to personal passions

Editor’s Note: We’ve always held that content curation (with added insight and value) is great for SEO. The below infographic (courtesy of TechMagnate and Beth Kanter) lays out some of the benefits of content curation.

What exactly is content curation? To Scoop.it, its the “meaningful selection and sharing of online content for professional purposes or personal passions.” Professional purposes run the gamut from thought leadership to product marketing, and personal passions can be gathering and sharing knowledge about anything that gets your engine going. Many people curate every day without knowing it — whether it is sharing an insightful article they discovered on their favorite blog or retweeting a thought leader of their choosing. Curation is everywhere!

    love Scoop it but you really need to know what you are doing I have been using
    Scoop it now for about a year you need to keep it up every day if you can share
    things what other readers like also I love the way you can share with Twitter
    also Facebook that takes a lot of time away from me.

    Love the idea. I see how content curation really helps in serp rankings. As long as you curate relevant content nothing could ever go wrong. Curation is like a higher level of social bookmarking, the only difference is that it reach your target audience easily. :)
