What is the content creation process which you follows, let me know in the comments as I am curious about it.
I have been in the situation where I just pluck my hairs and look here and there thinking, Is anything left to blog about?
More than 27% of the internet is not explored yet, so you just need a good planner to plan everything ahead of time so that you aren’t short of anything.
Important: All methods are tested by me personally and are different from the general perspective. So, kindly read the full article to avoid guesswork. These methods might seem crazy at the time but surely you will love them and will have tons of ideas for blogging…
Let us start
1. Curation ideas for blogging
This technique is used by most of the top writers. But what actually this means?
I’ll tell you, this technique is the same as competitors analysis. Just look around at what your competitors are doin, most of the time they will be way ahead of you if they comprised of a group of people.
Are you telling me to just copy what others are doing or steal other efforts?
Hell No, in fact, I strongly condemn it.
The point is you should look for the content of your competitors which is performing well or is recently added and look for the keyword which they are targeting.
How can I find those keywords?
But if you are going for a free tool, then use Google Keyword Word Planner. This performs the same function. It will give you a list of keywords, just export them in CSV format and then remove unnecessary keywords by just filtering them from the top of each column.
Just take 2-3 high volume and lower completion keywords and you are done.
Now move to the next step.
2. Google Autocomplete and Related Search Features
In the next step, enter your keyword in the google search by visiting their global page.
Wait, global search page? You have mistaken badly?
Hahahaha, not her. As you had noticed google usually redirects the google.com to your country’s URL like google.com.eu or whatever.
Just enter this URL google.com/ncr
NCR means “No Country Redirect” and then you will get the global version of Google homepage.
Coming-back to our mission, now enter the keyword and don’t press enter and let google complete it. It will give you some more keywords to target.
Furthermore, you will also find the keywords at the end of the first page after pressing the enter key.
Anas, you are just telling us the keyword research. Yeah, that’s true, but these keywords are actually topics which you will be covering in your next blog post. Just write a good article targeting any of one these and you are good to go.
Next step is relatively the same but you can use it differently according to yours.
