What do we mean when talking about reader engagement? Well, in terms of blogging the first things that come to mind are comments, sharing, questions, conversion rates. To sum up we could compare reader engagement with building a community. A community where readers care about each other, where action doesn’t stop after reading the final paragraph and where exciting discussions are born. Unfortunately, good content and neat design aren’t the only factors which affect reader engagement. You need to learn to focus readers attention and start a conversation. Developing an engagement is a win-win situation. Your visitors will want to explore more and join the conversation but you, as the publisher, will be looking at higher conversion rates. Gamification is a whole branch in reader engagement which brings together game mechanics and marketing to create engagement and solve problems. What do we understand with game mechanics from a web standpoint? Well, that doesn’t necessarily has to be the traditional online games as we are used to seeing them…

Scoop.it, the startup that approaches Web content curation by letting you create a topic-specific blog-style feed that others can follow (see our initial coverage here, and more here), has launched an iPhone app that allows you to manage your topics on the go. While many mobile apps for curation services are simply designed to view content, Scoop.it is designed for sourcing and sharing too. For each of the topics you manage, Scoop.it will suggest recent articles from around the Web which you may wish to share. Each suggestion can be shared to your page or removed with a couple of taps. If you want to share something manually, meanwhile, you have two options; you can either enter the URL, title, and a note to go with it, or there’s a bookmarklet you can install to share easily from the iPhone’s own browser. Unfortunately, as with other iPhone bookmarklets, it’s a little fiddly to set up.
