Extra! Extra! Read all about it! News to feed your content marketing


“In computing, a news aggregator, also termed a feed aggregatorfeed readernews readerRSS reader or simply aggregator, is client software or a web application which aggregates syndicated web content such as online newspapersblogspodcasts, and video blogs (vlogs) in one location for easy viewing. RSS is a synchronized subscription system. RSS uses extensible markup language (XML) to structure pieces of information to be aggregated in a feed reader that displays the information in a user-friendly interface. The updates distributed may include journal tables of contents, podcasts, videos, and news items.[1]”  Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/News_aggregator

News aggregators are one of my favorite categories. Here are my top 7 favorite tools:

Google News. You can literally create your own virtual newspaper.

Google Play Newsstand. Much more powerful than news. It would be nice if they would just roll these into one tool but it’s so good I use them both.

Flipboard. This is one is powerful, but also may be the most fun and visually appealing.

Inoreader. Clearly the best in my book.

Buzzsumo. Want to know what content is the most popular and who is sharing it? This is the tool…

Apple News. Similar to Google Play Newsstand but proprietary to Apple. Android users keep moving…

Digg. This crowdsourced news apps is a great addition to a news aggregation campaign.

Google Trends. Last but not least Google Trends shows you what people are looking for.

BuzzSumo has to be the most important tool that I use for my content marketing and SEO campaigns. The ability to quickly identify what content is working well in an industry and who the major influencers are. For me, no tool comes close to providing the kind of insight that BuzzSumo gives.
