Content creation and SEO
I'm a relatively new Genesis user, and very happy with my decision to switch from Thesis and Headway themes.
My question involves not the themes themselves but the strategy in use at Copyblogger VERSUS what is being widely taught in the open market.
Curation and aggregation, or the sharing of short unique posts that link out to the original source of the site is being used and taught all over the place.
I've been using it myself and getting average results on traffic growth/SEO. The other day it occurred to me that Brian and Sonia DO NOT curate other's info - they post original content that they've written and also have compelling guest bloggers who also write so that the pace of new content growth is brisk.
There is not a problem to solve here - but a discussion I'd like to start. What're your opinions on the two strategies? It seems to me that Copyblogger knows something about success and I'm trying to model success.
