A good example of Curation websites is Huffington Post, which basically picks excerpts of news and writes their review to introduce the news.

Content curation should not be confused with autoblogging, content scrapping and all other blackhat content stealing techniques. These methods violate content owners copyrights and such webpages publishing duplicate pages are knocked-off by most search engines from their indexed search house.
Paul Clifford takes Curation to the next level and shows you exactly how to do it properly and even better build authority around your issue, such that search engines like Google will want to let you web pages dominate search results.
Did you know that Oprah W. is not a doctor? but she is an authority who allows doctors to share their know-how on certain topics and NOT just any doctor will appear on Oprah's show. Same way, you can decide what content is news and should dominate readers if you become an authority on your issue.
Paul and his team will teach you exactly how to become an authority without writing thousands of words per day. He has made it simple with his proprietary software: PageOne Curator. You can find more about the software on this link www.getsecondincome.com/
In concluding, Content Curation is a double edge sword, if not done properly it can land you in trouble, but if you do it the way Paul recommends by following the simple steps on his Pageone Curator software then you'll not only become an authority but will build a reliable income too.
