Twitter Curation Grows Up: Storify Becomes Blog & SEO FriendlyThirteen years ago this spring, Dave Winer's UserLand Software launched a technical protocol that made it easy to publish content from one Web page onto another. (Winer was the inspiration for ReadWriteWeb and countless other blogs.) A similar protocol was employed by another blogging tool that would launch one year later, Evan Williams and Meg Hourihan's Blogger - which will reportedly now be renamed Google Blogs in the great Google Plus Rebranding of 2011. Things are different these days, though. "It is not everybody's job to create an audience as in the blog era. Storify is a fast-growing and much-loved service that lets users quickly and easily build dynamic collections of embeddable content from Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Flickr and elsewhere. Storify will now allow those collections of multimedia to be published out onto the servers of the most popular blogging platforms online and their users.

If we throw away the terms for a moment, here’s what I think they want: A Sign We need a way for people to find us. A Friendly Place If your online presence is friendly, like a really clean and well-designed site, or if it has a place for you to relax and get acquainted, won’t that help the process of getting to know you? Networking Connections Building an online presence also gives you the chance to connect with people. Connecting is part of the whole social experience. A Storefront This is optional, but if one goal of your blog and your online presence is to sell something (even if that’s just YOU), make that clear. A People-Centric Mindset If you’re not building relationships, connecting with people, getting to know others on the web, and sharing, I’d say you’re doing it wrong, except I rarely believe that. That All Said… The tools change all the time. How do you think you stack up to the above?
