Right here at MyDogAlerts.com we take curation seriously.
The web was built and based on sharing, connecting, and highlighting great stories from various sources throughout the Internet.
To us, curation means finding well executed, interesting, and highly appropriate materials for our visitors.
Whenever we choose content from your website, we are actually giving it a ‘vote of approval.’ We don’t just excerpt your article – we actually add our highest recommendation. In each and every case we direct our readers back to your site to view your article there.
In short, we design our curation so that it sends our visitors to articles on your website.
We curated and excerpted your content because we thought it somehow outstanding and worthy.
However, if for whatever reason, you do not want us not to excerpt your content, just contact us, and ask that your story be taken down.
Immediately, without exception we will act on your takedown request comply and add you to our list of websites from which to never to excerpt.
In reality, pretty close to 100% of the messages we receive regarding curation and excerpting come from authors and publishers who are very happy to get exposure and additional readership for their articles and stories due to our curation.
Most publishers online understand the value of seeing their articles and stories
- Commented on
- Linked to
- New readers encouraged to read the content
Sharing of content socially actually extends the reach, impact, and ultimately the effectiveness and profitability of the original publisher’s site.
We are eager to present relevant content to our readers, which is why we are excerpting your content and are happy to point them to the original source of the excerpt.
Frankly, we want our readers to discover and visit your content, and that’s now they discover your website.
Hopefully, You’ll be Happy We Excerpted One of Your Stories
“Fair Use,” practices, standards, and legal decisions regarding content rights are still evolving online. We keep to standards well above merely legal.
We hold ourselves to a far higher standard than “Fair Use.” We actually aim for “Delighted Use.”
If you are not eager to be excerpted and linked to by our website, simply tell us and we will take action immediately.
We excerpt content with lots of care as we hope others will curate our stories
Specifically, if you like a story on our site and decide to curate and tell your readers about it, we’ll be pleased and gratified.
Feel free to excerpt our content as generously as you wish. In return please just give us clear credit, links back to the story, and encourage interested visitors to come and read the original article.
We happily agree that you take as much of our content as you think will inform and entertain your readers. Simply link, credit, and encourage the reader to visit the original site.
That’s what built the web and it is what we do.
- That’s what social sharing is all about.
- Everyone benefits when sharing is done respectfully and honestly.
This We Will NEVER Do
- We never take an entire story or article from your site. We never re-publish without full credit, links and sending our readers to you.
- We never republish an RSS feed as is.
- With every excerpt goes our intention of sending more traffic to you.
- We always change the headline, add meaning and context, and an analysis to your stories.
The General Excerpts Guidelines Published on this Website
- Never more than around 30–40% of any article
- Never more than a single piece of content from any website on any one day
- Never more than what is required to communicate the essence of your story
As said above, online standards for sharing, curation, and excerpting are constantly evolving, hence, what we consider standards of delight may actually differ from yours.
If you would like us to be even more generous with links and credits let us know. Also, if you feel we have excerpted too much from your article, just let us know.
We will fix it to your standards instantly.
