It would seems that the latest buzzword around the Internet is definitely ‘content curation’, the content curation model and the impact that content curation is having on various types of web sites and blogs around the world.
There are literally tens of millions of discussions which have popped up about this strategy already, and new tools and new marketing strategies are being deployed to meet the demand of incorporating this new valued process.
The challenge is that few companies understand what content curation is and how it can help build a brand and a business.
The main thing that all businesses need to know is that Content Curation is the sure-shot way to win the battle for first page results on Google. Quite simply, providing fresh and relevant content in an organized way, improves SEO for the site it lives on – which is likely why 65 percent of respondents that Forbes surveyed cited boosting SEO as one of their main content curation objectives.
Content Curation Tools
Content curation can be done manually, using HTML or by using specialized tools. Curation is different from aggregation and content stealing. Curators spend hours reading and filtering content, only to select what is relevant and useful to their audiences. It is not an automatic process. It takes a lot of work and commitment.
Although there are many tools that can be used to aid Content Curation and each of them requires a profile to be properly setup. Like any other SEO process you need a defined strategy and you need to be sure that you are publishing relevant content with each page or post.
Best Content Curation
Well-executed content curation isn’t just a regurgitation of content that was already published but rather a personalized retelling of a story. The human element of content curation is what makes curated content compelling.
It is the process of identifying, organizing and sharing the best and most relevant content on a specific topic or issue online.

Content Curation Definition
In simplest terms, content curation is a form of content marketing where a publisher (in this case, a small business) editorially collects the best content related to a specific niche and targeted to a specific audience then enhances that content by adding personal opinions and expertise. That enhanced content delivers added value to the target audience who consumes it after it’s published.
