Often, bloggers around the globe are out of ideas to blog on, I mean we have ideas, just not the right title, or content to start the post, right?
And most off the times, the topics are already covered, I mean who would want to know “What is WordPress” right? But why not approach it from a different angle ? People might not be interested in “What is WordPress“, but they surely would be interested in “5 Secrets no one knows about WordPress” right?
Actually the point is, the story begins from the title itself. 70% of the people who view the link, will click on the title, only if it stands apart from the crowd.
Worry not, I’ve compiled the list of the #Awesomest blog idea post generators which will get you the best, most attractive , SEO friendly titles in matter of seconds, and you’d be surprised at how many topics are waiting out there to be grabbed.
Take-away from this article:
- 10 Free tools , to generate ideas for your next blog post.
- Understanding the “impact” and use of the right words, at the right place. ( From the Portent Tool ).
- Researching the exact kind of content, that will be a sure-fire traffic magnet.
- Leveraging thousands of hits, from platforms like Quora & AllTop.
Portent’s Content Idea Generator
Portent is one of the best tools available out there to generate content ideas for your next blog post. Why? Just keep reading,
Portent’s idea generator doesn’t only generate the blog content idea for you. It generates
- The meaning , the impact of each word in the title.
- Helps you calculate and optimize the weight and worth of the whole title.
And as it’s called the “content” Idea generator, it’s because it lets you fill in more than one keyword, while the “blog idea generators” only let you fill in 1 keyword per search.
For eg, I’m typing “affiliate marketing” in the box, and here’s the result I get.
Tweak You Biz Idea Generator
Tweak your Biz is my personal favorite, not because its design is not as awesome as Portent, but because it gives instant, organized, VAST list of content ideas that you can write on.
For eg. It breaks the result in different categories, the most popular ones being – List, How to’s etc. And the ideas are just fabulous, you start completing your post in your brain even before you hit the keyboard.
For eg. just look at the below titles, would you ever be able to resist them?
Build Your Blog Ideas Generator
BYB blog ideas generator is slightly different from the other tools mentioned here, it doesn’t let you key in your keyword.
What? Then how will I get ideas, right?
Well, this generator takes creativity to another level, you just have to click on the “generate ideas” button, and it’ll give you the best, trending Syntax, into which you can fit your keyword, turn it twist it and cook a hot meal of a delicious content for your blog.
Ideator Idea Generator
Ideator is the pirate’s treasure, when it comes to Content ideas.
You just have to key in one keyword, or two maybe , and the list of possible ideas, and topics it’ll generate for you is more than you’ll ever need. Additionally, it keeps the post syntax in sync with Google SEO friendliness, so the headlines are good enough to grab and eat right from the page itself.
Hubspot Blog Topic Ideas Generator
HubSpot is like the Giant King of the Internet Marketing world, right? So when the king has a tool to offer, why not give it a try?
Infact, it’s design and efficiency is one of the most perfect one,
It asks you for your 3 prime keywords, so I’m giving it ” Social- Media – Guide “. And the best part? It’s titles are short, meaning there’s ample space for you to extend, optimize and add some spices to your title yourselves.
Content Row Ideas Generator
It doesn’t look flashy like Protent or Hubspot, but it does the job, and quite upto the mark I’d say. Content Row Ideas Generator generates ideas based on the most trending sytax for that keyword. For eg. ” ( Number ) ( sentence ) ( Number ) is a trending syntax for a certain keyword, then it grabs it out and does the job for you.
For eg. “101 unusual uses of Blog post Ideas” is a irresistible title isn’t it?
Blog Idea Generator
Don’t confuse yourself with the earlier “blog idea generator” I talked about, yes their names are pretty much similar, and the jobs too, but well this is yet another tool for you to use when others might be down, you might be looking for an extra edge.
It gives you the “syntax” , similarly like the tool we talked about some time earlier, but it’s speciality is it tells you, if you have to insert a “keyword” or a “number” or something else, at a specific position for the best results.
Well, that’s something right? I mean it matters a lot. How? Here are two titles, tell me in the comments which one attracts you more?
“How to get blog ideas” and “10 Awesome tools to get unusual blog post ideas”.
Okay so I’m done with “Titles” , how about going into how to generate new content Ideas. Good point, right?
For that, there are a number of tools you can be, and should be using.
What is BottleNose?
Before going into what that is, let me ask you, what will be one of the best strategies for you to consider while writing your next blog post? Your answer probably would be – ” To write content that people want to read” .
Exactly, so BottleNose tells you, what people are reading, all across the globe right now, Either on Facebook, twitter, or just on Google.
- Head over to BottleNose Search
- Now scroll down, to get to the “Sonar” section.
See the screenshot? It gives you the trending topics, and their relatedsubtopics, and trending = they are getting thousands of real time hits, so that’s a good place to start I’d say, right?
All Top is like a Social Bookmarking Platform, where you can find a collection of the best, trending topics on a certain niche or keyword.
It literally tells you, what the people are looking for right now, what kind of titles and content are working for someone, and well if something is working , then you should make use of it right?
It’s simple to use AllTop too, just head over to the site. And in the Search Box, enter your Niche or Keyword. For eg. I’m keying in ” Blog ideas”, and it will get you an extensive list of posts that need attention and exposure, so are a good place to start.
Quora: Supply to Demand
What is Quora?
It is a platform , where people ask questions of all kinds, and anybody can answer them.
It is profitable to you in two main ways:
- You get a list of questions, that are in-demand, so creating content on those questions is like a traffic funnel for you, not only from the Organic Search, but directly from Quora too.
- Answering questions directly on Quora, from you Quora account, gets noticed. And I mean, it really does. For eg here’s a screenshot, see a total of 51,000 people Viewed this, so it’s a great possibility that atleast, 30,000 of them clicked on the post right? So just imagine, 30K hits, from just a single post on Quora. What else do you need?
Also what do you normally do when you are out of ideas? You try to “guess”, what people might be interested in, and then do a keyword research and write a post on it, right?
Well, Quora is directly giving you solid points that people are definitely interested in, what’s you excuse for not using their free service?
Wrapping It Up:
Content is “still”, and probably forever will be the king.
But if you are out of ideas, I’d like to clear some misconceptions. First, just because there are plenty of posts on a certain topic, doesn’t mean the topic is not worth a new post.
For eg. there are thousands of posts on “Make money on WordPress”, right? But if you have something unique to offer, or even if your approach is a bit different, go out and hit the keyboard. No matter how high the keyword competition is, if your content is worth it, it WILL get noticed. Not today, not tomorrow either maybe, but when it does, it’ll be your greatest traffic funnel.
