A very easy way to get repeat traffic to one's web site, microcontent refers to little bits and pieces of information that change very frequently.

Microcontent can also include syndicated content: everything from Slashdot headlines to stock quotes. A customizable portal such as My Yahoo! is nearly all microcontent.
