    You should also start backing up the data you store on your device(s). If you don’t know where to start, you’ll want to dig into our guides covering iCloud backups and iTunes backups. Data loss issues are pretty rare, but there’s always a chance something gets lost in the shuffle as you transition to a new version of iOS.

    Great article, but I feel it’s missing one section of information that could really be helpful.

    By it’s very nature, a content aggregation site curates OTHER people’s content. A curated article typically has an image, a title, and a brief summary, more often than not a snippet of the first paragraph from the article collected. So you have two options 1 – when someone clicks the title (image, or whatever) it takes them directly to the article on the other website. Or 2 – you download the entire article and display it on your site when the link is clicked. The big problem with 2 is you just ripped off someone else’s content. Not only is that illegal in most cases, google frowns on it big time. You now have a duplicate content penalty.

    So given this (especially when it relates to SEO), how do aggregator sites overcome these very two real and large hurdles to successfully (and financially) grow a news aggregation site?

      Great point! Thank you for the question blue928.

      Firstly, let me point out that there are 3 options, not 2. The third is to show only a snippet of the content when it opens on your site, plus a link back to the original source after that. WP RSS Aggregator achieves that using it’s Word Trimming feature and I’ve seen a lot of sites use it very successfully.

      Now, when it comes to duplicate content, we’re working on a detailed guide about this as the general impression about it may sometimes be wrong. Google rarely ever penalises duplicate content in general unless it’s done in a malicious manner, which is certainly not what this article is promoting.

      Aggregated and/or curated content can add value to both the original source and your website as it increases awareness for both sites, creates mutually beneficial relationships where content can be shared and its audience expanded, and increases backlink opportunities, all of which Google uses as ranking factors in one form or another.

      Ideally, you don’t repost the full content unless you’ve come to some agreement with the source site to do so. You can either link back immediately from the title, or show only a snippet of the content as I mentioned above. At the same time, reach out to the source sites to introduce yourself and work on building up your audience. This will create new referral traffic while building up your reputation and increasing backlinks. The latter will result in SEO benefits that can then also help with organic traffic.

      The website https://eurofinanceblogs.com/ is a great example of this. Since its inception it has helped to create new relationsips with the source sites, resulting in backlinks from them, new partnership opportunities, and a growth in referral traffic. Once that reputation is being built, the site can then be monteized through ads, affiliate links, and so on.
