Here at AuctionReady.co.za we take curation seriously.

The internet was built and founded on linking, sharing, and recommending great stories from other sources on the web. Curation, to us, means finding interesting and highly appropriate articles for our readers. By choosing an article or image from your site, we are giving it our vote of approval. This not only means that we excerpt your article, we also give it our highest recommendation, and we direct our readers … in every case … to view your article on your website.

Our curation is designed to send our readers to your site and your articles. We curated and excerpted your article because it was highly relevant to our audience in some way. If, for any reason, you wish us not to excerpt your stories, simply contact us, and request your story be taken down. We will immediately and without exception comply with your take down request, and put you on our list of sites never to excerpt from.

Social sharing of online content only extends the reach, impact, and ultimately the effectiveness and profitability of the original publisher’s website. We are excerpting your content to inform our visitors, and to point them to the original source of the excerpt.

To be frank … we want our readers to discover and visit your content, and your website. We Want You To Be Pleased We Excerpted An Article From You.

Most Importantly … Sharing, curating and excerpting standards are still evolving online. Our standards of delight may very well differ from yours.
