How To Come Up With New Ideas For Useful SEO Articles

Posted by:

For an article writer one of the hardest tasks is trying to think of a new angle or coming up with new content on a subject you may well have been writing about for quite some time.

But one of the most common reasons for this problem is that all too often article writers try to come up with answers, without really thinking too much about the question.

Oh, there’ll invent a question, and probably either include it in the article title or the first sentence – perhaps both. But that’s the problem – they’re inventing questions.

If you’re struggling to come up with new questions and topics for your SEO articles or blog posts why not make it easier on yourself and simply use one of the questions that’s actually being asked by real people?


It’s easy to find this out by searching online, reading blog comments and browsing relevant forums. Not only can this provide real inspiration for your writing, but you’re helping to address those issues people are actually having, rather than the ones you’re inventing. And when you stop to think about, isn’t that really what we SEO writers should be doing anyway?

    its true Justin, its always better to address a real issue but it can be tough depending on topic.

    answers sites are a good source of inspiration, like yahoo answers and this is a great list: http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_question-and-answer_websites
