SEO-Friendly Content Curation Study

0

Bruce-Clay-SiteWhen done right, curating content as a strategy can create publisher SEO and efficiency by boosting a content strategy with SEO-friendly, keyword rich content, and allowing for authority and thought-leadership. SEO expert Bruce Clay investigated this subject as he implemented the strategy on his own site.

Overview

Bruce Clay Inc., the leading global internet marketing solutions and optimization company, and PublishThis, the leading Real-Time Content Platform, conducted a multi-stage test on a new blog post format, “Editorialized Curation”, to understand the positive impact and lift in search engine rankings.

Study FrameworkBest-Practice

Evaluating curation from an SEO standpoint centers around the question of rankability. In the face of Google’s algorithm factors, the quality of content is of utmost importance to ranking. Panda devalues duplicate content or over-optimized content (i.e., content intended only for search engine rankings such as manipulative practices like keyword stuffing). Can a collection of content aggregated from sources across the Web qualify for Google rankings?

Conclusion

When curation-based blog posts contained original analysis and commentary — a version of curation we at PublishThis call “Editorialized Curation” — the post saw search engine rankings equal to a “traditional” post on the same topic. At the same time, Editorialized Curation Posts took about half the time to write when compared to traditional posts. By incorporating editorial curation into a content strategy, a brand can maintain high publishing frequency and see SEO benefits of fresh, topically relevant on-site content.
