What is a content aggregator?
A content aggregator is an entity that pulls together web content, applications or both from online sources for reuse or resale. It’s a means of curating content. Two types of content aggregators exist:
- those who gather news and other materials from various sources for publication on their own Web sites
- those who syndicate content, gathering and distributing material that suits their customers’ needs
Content aggregation involves collecting materials in one place, such as:
- newspaper and magazine articles
- social media posts
It’s possible to aggregate content manually, but in today’s data-driven world, automated content aggregation, with the help of software tools, is more common and practical.
Why use a content aggregator?
Content aggregators can:
- enhance your marketing efforts as part of a content marketing strategy
- power your business applications
- drive your corporate intranet
- empower you to add value to customers
- keep you up to date on industry information
