Search Engines Will Increasingly Be Gateways To Curators & Collections Rather Than To Individual Tracks

Search Engines Will Increasingly Be Gateways To Curators & Collections Rather Than To Individual Tracks | Content Curation World |
Robin Good's insight:

Justin Fowler, co-founder of AudioPress, offers valuable insight into what the future of search and curation may be, by providing a relevant and sound pattern to look at: music.

He writes on TheNextWeb:

"Context is key for music, and that is where services like Songza and Beats Music are picking up tips from FM radio. These services are essentially using algorithms to help people discover new playlists, instead of discovering new songs. This allows for a marriage of both technology and human curation."

Accordingly, as time goes by, I expect to see search engines increasingly highlight and direct searchers to quality curators, hubs and on-topic collections and specialized resources, rather than to individual, one-topic-only pages.

Search engines will increasingly be gateways to curators and content collections rather than to individual tracks and pages.

This will be particularly true especially when you will query a topic, a theme or interest, or better yet, a musical genre.

In all of these situations, where you want to dive, discover and learn more about a topic, it is much better to be offered a selection of playlists, compilations, collections or hubs covering that theme rather than a specific song, product or artist.

That is, search and discoverability of content will rely more and more on intermediaries that will take on the load to make sense and organize in the best possible way, a specific realm of information (it can be a music genre, or the analysis of a biological topic) rather than  - as it happens today - provide a linear list of individual web pages that is supposed to cover that topic.

If the music industry, is, like other times before, an early indicator of how things will work out in the future, it makes a lot of sense to expect that the future of content discovery and search will be increasingly in the hands of curators, greatly helped and supported by sophisticated, but hackable and adjustable algorithms.

What do you think?

Rightful. Indicative of things to come. 8/10

The News Are Just an Option: Curating Archives Is a Better Strategy For Creating Outstanding New Work

The News Are Just an Option: Curating Archives Is a Better Strategy For Creating Outstanding New Work | Content Curation World |
Robin Good's insight:

Content archives often contain a treasure trove of valuable information not easily findable as more up-to-date content. But this does not mean that older content isn't as good or appreciated by readers as much as breaking news stories.

In fact, the opposite may likely be true.

According to the data collected by Aaron Lammer, cofounder of Longform, (an app that allows you to access quality curated longform content) readers appreciate quality content whether or not it has been written yesterday.

He himself writes in an excellent article entitled The Archive Is a Campsite: "Magazine editors occasionally ask us about trends we see, and what gets clicked.

We find that articles on sex and crime overperform, while those on politics or the media seem to lag. Not shocking—people like sex, and any political leaning divides a crowd.

But a second peek into the analytics seems to surprise almost everyone: older stories are read at the same rate as new ones."

The article, is really full of truthful considerations, that should make any web publisher consider how valuable really is to keep chasing the "latest" stuff only.

A skilled curator (or what he calls here an "archivist") can indeed be a more than valid future alternative to search engines, as we know them now.

He writes: "The obvious entry point into these archives is search. Looking for a restaurant menu? A clip you remember seeing on Sesame Street as a child? Search has you covered. Looking for something to read on a flight? Not so much. If you don’t already know what you’re looking for, you simply aren’t going to find it.

Search is an interface for accessing the archive, just as the front page is an interface for accessing the news.

The archivist’s task is to build an interface that offers a better experience than search. Such an interface might constantly reassemble the contents of the archive into a manageable and coherent subset that both surprises and delights, a sort of serendipity machine."

Aaron really nails down the need to break away from this falsely praised culture of the "new", by writing: "Archives work best when they escape the content silos that drive the creation of new material.

When art and information from disparate sources are merged into a single archive, new pathways into the content emerge. "

He also doesn't miss the target when he reminds publishers that such issues are not in the realm of plugins or technical solutions.

"Archives aren’t a technical problem that can be solved with a plugin or recommendation engine. Their contents were built by people, and they require real human effort to shine."

Curating your own content archives is an act that requires lots of hard work, but it is an act that provides value both to you as a publisher as well as to your readers and to the Internet as a whole in general.

When you invest in your archive… you do more than simply pad your pageview count.

You announce to the world that your work merits ongoing interest, and you confirm to your readers that the relationship you’re building with them is long term.


Focusing on the archive is, at its core, a strategy for creating outstanding new work.

Articles considered in the context of their influence over years and decades, instead of minutes and days, must inherently aim higher.

While such ambition asks more of both the creator and the consumer, it’s worth it, because it leaves something of value behind."

Rightful. Insightful. Inspiring. Must-read work. 9/10

HI Robin, Just a quick note to say thanks for another year of your great curation. I see your posts often, but today is the first time I noticed the 'extra touch' of your customized background with your photo and name. Smart use of the customized background.
