Best Blog Curation Software

What is the best blog curation software out there? That’s a great question that many of you have asked me. I have been doing blog curation for a very long time now using both the auto posting software (as below) and using specific Blog Curation Software.

I have used the auto posters and still do on some sites, the video, articles and Yahoo answers plugins are all excellent tools to use to  curate content onto your website. However, be warned it can get out of hand and so one does need to go into the sites now and again and check the posts coming in, to make sure that what is coming in is great content.We all know that Google loves new content so it’s well worth going into your auto posted curated content and writing something in there yourself. You can add things like your opinion, or a review, you may not even agree with what has been written so could write that as well. So now days I add at least 10% of my own thoughts at beginning and end of the content I bring in which really does not take too long at all.

There are a huge amount of curated sites out there that rank very highly and if content is great then why not use it for your self on your own site. ( always give credit though as to where article came from)

Here is what I have found. …

If I find a great article and want to share it on Facebook or Twitter then I am sending traffic to someone else’s site, they are probably happy, but I’m not as happy… why? well I want that traffic to go to my own site, so what should I do?
Easy… I take the content that I love and I put it on my blog, I write my 10% comments into it, then post the link into Facebook or Twitter or any other Social Site,  I send traffic to my site. That way my subscribers are happy, they have not had to wade through masses of info to find this great content, I’m happy because I know I am giving my subscribers great content, and I am also happy because I have driven traffic to my site and not the person who wrote the content, although I make sure I have a link back to them in the article or at beginning or end.

Don’t get me wrong though I also leave most of the links they put in there and I also write where I got the information from. Good news is the links out go to great authority sites ( in my case) so that make’s both myself and Google happy. So all round I am building a site that People love and Google loves. It’s a win win.

The other good news is I don’t have to think up what to write about everyday as there is so much great content out there I can curate and use.

If you are still not sure what Blog Curation is then you can go and read the Blog post I have written on WordPress Blog Curation

So what is the Best Blog Curation Software? In my opinion it is by far Curation Soft  you can have the free version of it or pay a very small yearly amount and have it to use all year on as many sites as you want. Plus you get to also use it on 3 Computers. The reason I believe it to be the best is the following:

1. Easy to use

2. Easy to setup

3. On paid version you have twitter as well as number of other places to curate from

4. You can add in other RSS feeds

5. You can use Youtube

6. You can bring in pictures from Flickr

7. One off payment

8. Great training

9. Great support which I had to use once

10. Drag and drop it’s so easy.

One other question I get about blog curation is… Does Linking To Other Sites Bring You More Traffic?

Well here is a curated article on that topic…..

Best Blog Curation Software

This is one of the most often asked questions I get from beginner content marketers who are investigating  curation.  I say “beginner” because once you’ve read a few sites  that aren’t just shopping or direct sales sites, you quickly realize that everyone is linking to other sites – a lot.  And not by gun point, but willingly.

What’s more, sites that send people away are some of the highest traffic sites on the web.  So how can a site that actively sends people away, like Mashable.com, be one of the highest traffic sites on the web?

The answer is not to over think the answer.  It is so obvious that people don’t believe it at first.

As a content marketer you MUST send people away from your site in order to get a lot of traffic.  You don’t have to understand why to know it’s true.  If sending traffic away from your site was bad, all the major blogs, news sites, and niche content sites that link to resources outside their own domains would be unpopular instead of rolling in readers.

Some of the lowest traffic sites on the web, conversely, don’t link to anything outside their own domain.  Though there are sites that dead-end on the web which also get traffic, it is either paid traffic or comes from affiliates who are paid to send traffic from their sites and lists.  I’m talking about organic search and direct traffic from straight links on, you guessed it, other sites.

So Why Do You Get More Traffic By Linking To Other Sites?

Again, this answer is simple, but true.  Sites that actively (gleefully even) send people to other sites are hubs.  They are the watering holes of the internet.  In Africa, once a Zebra is full up on water, the watering hole sends them away, happy to live another day.  But do you think for a second that Zebra hasn’t burned the coordinates of a watering hole into their mind?  Of course it has.

Hot Watering Hole Action

Not only that, but the Zebra is going to lead any and all other Zebras he finds back to that watering hole.  ”The water is good, cold, and plentiful here.  We should always come back to this place.”

A hub site that delivers great and plentiful information to people who are thirsty for it has the exact same effect.  People come in throngs to sites like Huffington Post, TechCrunch, Mashable, Boing Boing and thousands of others every single day.  And what do each of those sites do?  They send those people right back out on the web to quench their thirst for information.

And those people bookmark, share, Like, Tweet, and email the crap out of those sites’ links to share the great watering holes they’ve found.  And the news spreads far and wide, virally, that there is this great place to learn about do-it-yourself projects, or about the trials of motherhood, or a site that has all the latest news on Android apps.

That is not just a primer on how to get a lot of traffic.  It’s exactly how the entire web actually works.  If hubs didn’t exist and no one ever showed their visitors the information that they’ve discovered elsewhere on the web, there would be no web at all.

  5. Excellent Gail, i did buy Harlan’s entry level course, there was some confusion with my initial registration emails etc, but I am underway now.

    Do you think it is a good idea to use niches we are already in? Not for the sites he builds for us, but as a boost to our existing?
