Source It or Get It Display a Not Found or Error Web Page

When you first try out MyCurator, some clients find that the Source It and Get It tools display a “404 Not Found” page from their web site.  Another case is they display a “500 Internal Server Error” page.  In both of these instances, the cause is that the Get It or Source It tools are being blocked from operation by your host installation.

How will Content Curation Grow my Ecommerce site?

Why would I want to post other peoples articles when I have so much content already – my product descriptions, sale pages and reviews?  These are the key pages that I want indexed high in the search engines too.

First off, you need to stand out from your competitors, and having some interesting, relevant content besides your product information can make your site more engaging for your customers.  In addition, content that is not just about your products can help you establish some authority in your product niche.  Not only do your customers see that you are keeping up with the relevant news, trends and ideas.  The search engines also like to see this broader content.

Why so many Twitter Errors in my Error Log?

With MyCurator you can discover content from Twitter searches as well as following a specific user’s Twitter stream.  MyCurator looks at each tweet for a link to an article or blog post.  It then grabs that article for your training posts.  If you look at your Error Log in the MyCurator Logs menu item, you may see one or more errors with the message “Could Not Resolve Twitter Link”.  What does that mean?
