Have you ever written the most incredible blog post only to find that it was getting zero traffic?  Although this can be very frustrating the reason is very simple: no one is specifically searching for the content you’re writing about.  This doesn’t mean you need to completely abandon your blog niche.  It means you need to be doing more legwork  to identify what people are asking for, and make sure you are answering those questions in your post.

Before you get back to blogging, here are some resources you might find useful to ID trending topics and perform keyword research.

  • Twitter:  This one’s no secret!  They directly list current trends on the homepage and profile page.
  • Buzzfeed: They built an entire site based on trending topics!  Check on the right hand side of the landing page with a live feed of articles and trending topics.
  • Quora: Gain insight into what people are asking that are in your niche.  Search for a topic and a list of questions will appear.  Focus on questions with high level of engagement.
  • Google: Type a question in the search bar and see how Google autocompletes that phrase.  Another great tool from Google is Google Trends. Simply search for a topic in the search bar, and it will return the volume of traffic.
  • Pinterest: same strategy as Google, using autocomplete to ID relevant keywords and phrases.
  • Reddit: similar to Quora, explore sub-reddits in your niche to see what people are talking about.  This isn’t an effective way to find keywords persay, but you can certainly gather info on what questions people are asking.
  • BuzzSumo:  I list this one last because this platform is really only useful unless you purchase a paid subscription or sign up for a free trial.  However, it is extremely useful for identifying trending keywords, ideas and trends.

Hopefully this post has you well on your way to identifying the content and posts your audience is looking for!  As long as your
