I was curious about writer’s block because as bloggers we all have it. So I decided to write a blog post about the top 6 ways to generate blog topics.
Quora, the Q&A site, is an excellent source for blog topics. Searching for your blog topic on this site is tremendously valuable. Everyone from Neil Patel to Gary Vaynerchuk will log on to answer questions there as well.
According to Search Engine Land, Quora gets 100 Million visitors per month. What was once a site used primarily by the Silicon Valley scene, Quora is now a giant question and answer site that is a valuable resource for answers and a go-to for generating blogging ideas.
2. Google Auto Suggest
Straight from the massive search engine itself, Google will provide you with phrases people are already looking for. Google says the autocomplete feature is “designed to make it faster to complete searches that you’re beginning to type.” It is estimated that it saves users 200 years of typing per day!
Google’s Auto Suggest just may be the mind reader you’re looking for if you are looking for some quick topics.
One of the greatest ways to come up with blog topic ideas is to tap into Buzzsumo. All the great marketers from Brian Dean to Sujan Patel use Buzzsumo to research for great content to share. It shows everything, from the posts that readers love, to the hottest social media shares.
It also displays backlinks and top trending content. With Buzzsumo’s trending topics, you can stay relevant and tap into trending content before your competitors do.
Twitter’s trending topics is a great source to tap into as well. A lot of groundbreaking news comes from Twitter and that’s something you might want to keep your eye on. Tweet247 provides trending topics from around the world, which you can use to source for great blog topics. You can also ask questions and respond immediately. Type in Subject + ? in the search
