I’m seeing more Scoopit links in my Twitter stream and I’m not crazy about it. Sure it’s quick and easy to share with Scoopit. But it not quick and easy to consume. For me it's all about the econ...Marty NoteIf you missed I don't Like Scoop.it Links I, here's a link:http://sco.lt/5ZrOcb First post prompted a great note from my curator mentor coach Robin Good:« Marty, I can't agree more. I hate it myself when I see Scoop.it links in my Twitter stream because I know that most of the time it's a lame post with next to no content leading me somewhere else. I think this is part of the culture of Scoop.it, and the only ones that can change it significantly are those who direct and promote its editorial and marketing policy.Until you promote a tool like Scoop.it as a tool to save time and produce more content, target it to novice content marketers, and don't moderate actively what you showcase (like Flipboard or Medium do), you can't expect a different kind of outcome. I may be wrong but this is the impression I get. What's your take Marty? » Yes, butI agree with Robin much more than I disagree. Points of agreement include:Agree 80%* Difficulty of Creating Branded Curators on Scoop.it due to little or no "SHOWCASE". * Spam control on backs of curators. * Difficulty of building community on Scoop.it due to the first bullet. Disagree 20%* Adding Google authorship signals a desire by Scoop.it to share back value of the commons making Scoop.it UNIQUE in social nets / tools. * No commons is constructed as much as guided, influenced and moved like weather or a wave at a football game.The disagreement 20% speaks to the highly distributed nature of any commons. When content is coming in from pirates and the navy then content cherished, featured and held up as examples creates powerful social signals. This very TINY balancing beam is where cutators and editors of any commons must excel. Too heavy a hand and free discourse is squashed. Too light a hand and the commons (substitute community if it makes it easier to understand lol) can't find or share its spirit. Robin is successful because he is creative, intelligent and generous. Robin's skills mean he can be successful anywhere, so finding ways to partner with Robin, giving Robin (and Michele, Jan, Karen and Brian) "jobs" or defined roles would help shore up the GOOD and so decrease chances for the BAD to run amok. This "Showcasing" is a fine art since it too walks a fine and tiny beam between elitist and populist. When Robin hit 1M views on Scoop.it I would have been tempted to have a much bigger party (lol). The key push and pull between curators and any commons is how much value will be shared with the sharecropping contributors. When Robin and then Ana-Christina right behind him passed a million views I would have stopped time a little to interview them, qualify their tactics and strategies and in so doing call attention to a tool capable of helping a sharecropper reach a lot of people. For me, the third act of any commons is always "Review the Reviewer" or Brand the Curator (in Scoop.it's case). Who gets that? Red Bull gets it. I think FlipBoard does too though Robin has more experience there than me (recent innovations make me want to go back and check it out). Tools, like life itself, aren't permanent fixtures. As Scoop.it crosses this next chasm it walks a tight rope across the Grand Canyon and competitors such as FlipBoard are generating lots of wind. The Scoopit team is smart and they must sense a pivot is upon them. Personally I want to help. In for a penny...:). Marty

Cute little video that explains SEO basics like title tags and the importance of good content.
If you like this scoop, please consider a thumbs up or share.
It's easy to get lost in the technicalities of SEO. So it's refreshing to see this cute little video which lays out the basics of SEO very simply. It's well worth a watch.
The core message in this video is to 'Make Good Stuff'. Now that may seem obvious but many people lose sight of this as they try to optimise or over-optimise their sites for search engine ranking. So instead of getting sidetracked by the latest on-site tricks and ingenious link-building techniques it would be wise for most website owners to concentrate first on making their website good.
This reminds me of the old marketing maxim 'keep it simple, stupid' or KISS. It doesn't take a genius to work out that a good, valuable website should be the basis of your campaign. If this is achieved all else will follow.
If a website is good, useful, informative or inspirational, more people will visit it, more people will link to it, more people will share it with their friends, so even more people will visit. This will all help improve search engine rankings.
Yes, you still need to optimise your title tags, text and images. Yes, you still need to promote the site. But if you concentrate on making the website 'good' in the first place, your efforts will be rewarded many times over in the long run.
So remember to 'keep it simple' and 'make good stuff'.

Great conversations with Guillaume Decugis, Mark Schaefer, Phil Buckley, Mark Traphagen & others last week convince me there's a Curatti in our future.
Conclusions from three pros on CONTENT CURATION:
- "The best content on your websites is THEIRS not YOURS. - Internet marketing moves to 90% curation, 10% creation. - There will be content & User Generated Content (UGC) “Shocks”. - Websites who tell, share & curate the best stories win. - Websites who value & gamify UGC will attract great storytellers. - The Curatti.com multi-author, multi-thread content marketing model works."
In my opinion, there is tremendous value in bringing together relevant and useful content for your audience and trying to make it easier to use.

New update combines the relevance of search and the discovery of social media on one platform.
What makes content social? It takes both social + content networks. Social networks likes of Facebook/Twitter are well understood. Content Networks not so much.
This post talks about both social and niche content networks. Scoopit is both a social network and a content network for all types. This puts it in competition with sites like Stumbleupon, Digg, Reddit or Prismatic.

Scoop.it rescoops is sharing in overdrive!
When you rescoop another Scoop.it users post, the benefits get multiplied for both you and person who scooped the article first.
Rescoop, add insight and grow your community!
I started using Scoop.it a while back and this illustrates the power of Scoop.it!
As Seth Godin says in his excellent book Linchpin. If you share, everyone is better off, including yourself.

It is getting harder to correctly rank in search engine because Google keeps changing the goal-posts, and now they have released the Google Hummingbird update the search engine is supposed to evolve of its own accord.

When you’re passionate about something, can the Facebook timeline be a good representation of your digital self?
The curation platform SCOOP.IT announced their new Facebook Timeline integration. "By turning it on (it’s optional of course), your Facebook Timeline will be automatically updated in real time whenever you curate new content."
It's the backbone, the nerve centre, as well as the driving force when it comes to the online world.
How Scoop.it can build your community and add authority to links you scoop from your own website, as well as build your online reputation.
It has worked for me.
Linkedin allows you to list and describe projects, and to create hyperlinks to them. Why not add your Scoop.it Digests as individual projects and link to them directly?
Notice above that I also added the RSS feed for each, in case people wish to follow them that way.
Several studies have shown that small and mid-size businesses massively use social media as a digital marketing tactic. But at Scoop.it we wanted to take it a step further: how do small and mid-sized businesses use social media?
Now create and share updates with followers of your Linkedin Company Page using Scoop.it.

You can edit your tags, or even add them, after you post your Scoop.
Wondering how content curation fits into your marketing mix? Check out these tips and tools to help you curate wisely.
The curation tips very useful on Scoop.it are:
1. Find a few trusted sources as your main sources (It is easy with Scoop.it to get overwhelmed by unread but related materials.)2. Use keyword phrases, not single keywords to import comment. (I have found that quoting those phrases also helps to target.)3. Monitor others relevant digests/boards (After a while, you get to know who is collecting good stuff, and they become great sources.)4. Use the bookmarklet (Makes scooping fast, but check the board/digest you are scooping to)5. Add comment and story-telling to make it interesting.(I collect mostly tips, but will try to add more story telling to my comments.)
