Content Explorer: Three Easy Ways to Discover Great Content to Share

web content

Looking for great content to share? If you’re a content creator and curator, you spend endless hours both developing, and looking for valuable content for your audience.

Prismatic: the content you want, when you want it

After the sad demise of Google Reader, users were looking for a replacement.

Although Prismatic isn’t Google Reader, in many ways it’s better. It’s easy and fun to use. Here’s what one of the founders said:

Prismatic begins learning about your interests before you use the product. Within seconds of signing up, we’ve analyzed what you and your network share and discuss, and we make initial guesses about how much you like topics like “Science Fiction”, publishers like “io9”, or how interested you are in things that individual people share (even those outside your network).

Prismatic helps you to stay up to date, so that you can curate the best content for your audience. The more you use it, the better it understands you and what you need. Slate called it the “world’s smartest news-reading app.”

Triberr: the discovery and sharing platform

What’s Triberr? Mike Allton reports:

Members join Tribes based around specific topics and categories so that each blogger is sharing and reading blogs from other similar bloggers. I’ve been a member of Triberr personally for a while now, and can attest to the enormous impact it’s had on website traffic and reader interest. Triberr currently boasts over 50,000 tribes and over 2,000,000 visitors a month sent to member blogs.

I’ve only joined Triberr recently, but it’s already one of my favorite ways to discover and share content.

Google+ Communities: get the latest insights from others who share your interests

Google+ says about its Communities: “Talk about the stuff you’re into with people who love it too.”

You can create your own Communities, as well as join others’. With thousands of Communities, you’re sure to find people who share your interests. Those people share content, so you’ll find the latest and the best content.

I’ve joined dozens of Communities, and while I can’t keep up with them all, if I have a question, or want to catch up with the latest information, a relevant Community is just a couple of clicks away.

Aside from content, Communities can help you to gain visibility:

Posting within public communities is visible outside the community too… your engagement in a community… is still getting the highly-coveted Google rankings juice that helps get you found in search. Posts on G+ rank similarly to blog posts, so together with Google’s increased emphasis on the importance of +1’s and their secret algorithms, your online influence will spread as you gain influence among your peers in the community. Sweet!

You need tools to help you to survive the tsunami of content which flows onto the Web today. These tools help me, and they’ll help you too.
