Looking at other blogs is always a good way to stay on top of the trends being discussed and also look in the comments of those posts too to see what their audience is asking more info on.  Their questions in the comments section can easily give you ideas for more posts as well.

I’m not saying to copy other bloggers, never do that, Google won’t rank you anyway if you do, so don’t ever plagiarize.

Looking at other people’s blogs to get ideas it’s definitely a great way for you to get many ideas for your niche.

 

 

KEYWORD RESEARCH

A good keyword tool will also give you more ideas than just what you enter into it as well.  I don’t know what you use but I use this awesome Jaaxy Keyword Research Tool and I love it because they have so many features that is more than just a keyword tool.

For example, there is a feature called Brainstorm in there to help you get lots of ideas from the latest trends of Google, Yahoo, Alexa, Twitter, etc… this is a snapshot of what’s trending from all these sources today:

Brainstorm in Jaaxy

You can then add any of these topics to your brainstorm list by just clicking those plus signs.  Then on the Search page,  you can search on these topics to find more keywords for these topics.  The 3rd video on this page will show you how it’s done!  Don’t worry, if you need to sign up to view the video, it’s free!

The search feature is amazing as it tells you right away what is a good keyword to use because you’ll see a green dot which is good to go!  See more of what Jaaxy has to offer here in my full detailed review.

With a great keyword tool, you can find many new blog ideas for sure.  It is really endless if you think about going through the alphabet with each keyword, another feature available in Jaaxy!
