What is CurationSoft? Almost all of blogger do the same thing, and if you have done any of that work before, you should know that doing so has many benefits, but is also very time consuming. That’s mean; you can always scour your friend’s blogs, do a search, visit news sites or other trusted sources available to you. But then, there is the matter of putting them all together, by copying and pasting, editing, among other things.
You can find it in Wikipedia or another Dictionary and there will probably be more of articles out there that will give you definitions as to what curation or content curation is. In a simple manner lets me asking you a question. Have you ever created a “roundup”, “mash up” or some sort, or a “resource list” in your website or blog? But remembers not just scrapping it. In another word, choose a topic, research for the best articles out there, combine them into a post, publish, and share it to the world. That’s curating content! Bear in mind, that curating is one thing, and scrapping is another.
The Simple, Easy and Effective Way to Generate Content without the Writing
Well, that’s the story conventional blogger and it is over now. With CurationSoft, creating curate content has taken a different level. Think of it as your content creation assistant. Just think of a topic you want to curate, and CurationSoft will do the heavy lifting for you.
Actually this idea not new and just takes a look at the vast amount of websites that help curate content for you. You can try Paper.li, Scoop. It, Bundlr and more. But remember there are big different think in between. In that system you are curating content on their property and not on yours. The idea is to generate fresh content in your website that is relevant to your topic and are high authority and of great quality. After all, that is what content curation is all about.
CurationSoft publishes content directly on your property. It works on Word Press or other blog CMS without a middle man. It even works on Google+. Connecting what you curate to your site is obviously more advantageous than doing it on other sites. From now on I publish a weekly “roundup” and combine it with my idea for helping my reader and it has been doing well.
CurationSoft comes with two versions so I will share some of the pros and cons of both as we slide through the CurationSoft review.
Try The FREE version Download Here
CurationSoft does have a limited free version that you can use to test it out. With the new free version, you can grab loads of links and resources from popular blogs within your niche, and it cuts a lot of time off of finding and creating simple resource lists for your blog.
Simply fire up the software and enter your keywords to start browsing through all the most relevant blogs in your niche. It pulls from the Google Blog Search results, so it is showing the latest and greatest content on blogs in Google’s index. The down side to the free version is that it is limited to Google Blog Search, which gives you fewer resources that you can find in your niche. Some niches don’t even have any good blogs to curate from.
The Best or Full Version
Getting the full version of CurationSoft is the best way to go. Using it you would have found TONS of resources that you can use to add a lot more value to your list. I have used it to create curation posts that my readers love, share awesome resources that I follow myself, and get people to like and socially share my posts, driving even more traffic to my blog.
Another advantage to the full version is all the resources you can pull content from. On top of searching Google Blogs, you can also find loads of resources that you can share using some popular sites like:

- The KEY is not to create more content. But to organize, present and provide solid meaning to existing content. This is where content curation comes in.
Who is a Content Curator?
A Content Curator is someone who not only finds, groups, organizes and shares the best and most relevant content on a specific topic, but also provides her expertise on the topic.
Let ‘s break it down: Find; Group; Organize; Share the best; Share the most relevant; Provide expertise; and We should add the following:
Content curator is an expert on the topic she is curating content for
She will hone in on a “long-tail” keyword
Next she will use CurationSoft to pull out various high-ranking, popular content from various sources on the web for this keyword (article relevance to keyword is of paramount importance)
Then she will weave a story, present an insight or offer an opinion around the content she has grouped
When such expertise is weaved into the post, the curator provide the most meaningful and valuable experience the reader can have
