How to Research Blog Post ideas

The content that you write plays a role in your blog post search engine optimization too. Investing time to research blog post ideas is important. If what you write really doesn’t answer any specific question, your guest will leave and most likely never return. Ask yourself “What would I search for” and try it out. Search for something related to your idea and you will be able to find suggestions on searches other people have used. This is a good starting point to pick out something people ask about a lot and provide them with an answer or solution.

Answer questions that people are searching for

If you are struggling to come up with new blog post ideas, try answering a question or a series of questions related to the topic of your website or product. “how do I”, “Can I”, “What is the best way to” are all good starting points. I personally will take one of those and for example, I will search for “how do I” but add SEO at the end and google will offer me related suggestions for searches performed with the beginning of “how do I SEO”. This will result in some good blog post topics like “how do I SEO my blog post“. I always look for questions to answer when I research blog posts ideas.

    The most honest answer… Write it yourself. You will not find unique, free content anywhere because as soon as it is downloaded the first time it becomes duplicate content.
