KBucket Topic Curation

KBucket lets you organize articles and links around categories as curated collections. Links are shared to drive traffic to your site.

The KBucket plugin is a place for curators to share their own editorialized research in context. Each KBucket page (K stands for Knowledge) can store and share hundreds of links that are easily navigable through topic, author and publisher tags.

This video provides an overview of KBucket functions and features.

The curation happens in our powerful browser extension tool, Kauthor. Kauthor lets you pin and group your sources of information (both URL's and RSS feeds) and curate and save links in multiple curation folders with simple drag and drop move.

To learn more about the Kauthor features for curators see these blog posts on our website

To download Kauthor (its free) and start curating, start your Firefox browser and install the extension here.

Here are some of the applications of your KBucket pages.

  • Inbound Marketing: Each curated link can be shared to drive traffic back to your site
  • SEO: KBucket pages are optimized for search engines with micro tags
  • Influencer marketing: Publishers can engage influencers whose links they have curated
  • Employee Advocacy: You manage the links that employees share online
  • Newsletters: Each channel in KBucket has a custom RSS link that can be used to drive your newsletters.

What are the limitations with the Trial Version

The Trail version lets you post 10 articles per channel and create as many channels as you wish. The idea is for you to make sure the Plugin works for you and is compatible with your site.

How do I curate Articles

To Curate articles you need the Kauthor plugin for Firefox.
Kauthor let's you pin and group all your info sources, create multiple channels for storing, commenting and tagging links.
To learn more simply start Firefox and install the plugin from our site.

How Do I share my links

You can share links individually by clicking on the "+" sign at the end of the description and sharing the article on your preferred channel. You can also grab the article "url" placed under each article and paste it to your timeline. Additionally you can schedule links in a channel using the RSS feed provided for each channel in your dashboard. You can find these feeds under the "Published Links" tab in your WordPress > KBucket page. Select the Category and sub-category and grab the RSS feed to the right of your drop down boxes. We have more detailed description in our KBucket forum on our website.
