2 Ways How To Find Blog Post Ideas

Make money blogging is the dream of many people out there, choosing the right blog niche to write is the key, many beginners used to follow the big guy on the web and choose the “make money online” niche which they think it would make them rich. It seems complicated for beginners who just want to make money online but don’t know what to write or they can’t find a blog post topic to write.

Usually the blog post idea comes from our mind and imagination; it would be your experiences or inspirations from other bloggers. Sometimes we might get lost and have no idea what we can write about, or as we call it writer’s block. There are many ways where we can find blog post idea, but it’s complicated to write exactly what people are looking from Google search.

How To Know What People Is Searching?

As we know, Google is the largest search engine on the web and it has the most users. People use Google search engine to search what they really want, you know when you’re typing the keyword phase, then Google is trying to show you the complete query which you’re looking for. With that said, you can pick the exact search term that you’re looking for.

This is an example in which I search “how blog” and Google shows a few keyword results which other users recently searched, therefore you’ll roughly know what other people are searching for and you already get a blog post idea now.

Now you search the same keyword phase, says “how blog”, with a free search term suggestion tool from which you can get to know the number of searches of the keyword phase and some other suggestion keyword phases.

With the free search term suggestion tool, you will get tons of blog post ideas. As you can see from the screenshot, there are 891 results for the search term “how blog”, it’s not necessary that you must follow the title for your blog post, you can create your own blog post title, but at least you have some ideas on what you can write in the blog post.

Wrap Up

Now you already got rid of the writer’s block, you got tons of writing ideas with just a very simple technique and search term suggestion tool. Other than using the tool, you can also read more blogs by others which have similar niche with yours, then you’ll have some ideas on what you can write in your blog too. If you’re writing about make money online, then you should read more make money online niche blogs to get more writing ideas.

My final word, if you don’t want to fight with writer’s block, then you should try to pick a topic that you’re passionate, or you have a wide knowledge on that, then you would be able to write non-stop and get rid of the writer’s block.

  • I must say the way you have shown will return us only posts with already saturated ideas. Which means there are many posts already present to be read and then we have to beat them somehow to get listed.

    • This may or may not true, people might not get the exact result that they search for. Says someone is searching “How To Make A Cheese Cake” and there is no related result for that search term, if you write about that article then you’ll gain some visitors from there, this is just an example.

      What you mention here is also true Hami, the post title might be same with others, but the ideas might be different right? Unless you’re copying their ideas.

      Thanks for your sincere comment here Hami. 🙂
