A couple of SEO expert views on content curation and its impact on SEO. Martin Smith reviews Jayson DeMers article in the SEO Journal, so you get the benefit of opposing views and different opinions.
I found this very enlightening line in Martins review: “Google is a modeled system. In a post Panda, Penguin and Hummingbird world Google’s modeled expectations are important. If your model is 1 new blog post a day then you can safely increase by 10% or 20% if you want to live dangerously. If AudienceBloom dumps 800 pages on Google next week klaxons would go off. A Google editor would want to know what is going on. Google editor reviews are NEVER good things.”
What strikes me is that mixing in good curation is going to be a much easier way to meet your site’s ‘Google model’ than creation alone. Both articles are great and should reinforce best practices and adding value through content curation.
