Matt Cutts on Content Curation vs Aggregating and Re-Publishing

Robin Good's insight:

Matt Cutts is head of Google's Webspam team and frequently writes and publishes video clips that help web publishers better understand how to avoid getting penalized and how to provide the best value to their readers and to Google needs.

In this clip Matt answer the following question: "Many sites have a press release section, or a news section that re-posts relevant articles. Since it's all duplicate content, they be better off removing these sections (even with plenty of other unique content)?" (from Gus, MA)

If you are interested in finding out what Matt Cutts thinks about content curation versus light re-sharing and republishing of other people's content here is a good video to watch.

Good advice. Bottom line is "don't play smart, create value". 8/10
