How to get new blog post ideas using Google search and Alexa?
- Search on Google for a topic you’ve already written about.
The first step to find new idea for blog post is to search the title of a blog post you have written about. Use the post that you think is the core and most relevant post on your blog, related to your niche. For example, about my blog, I’ll search for the term – “blog post ideas generator”
- Make a list of top 10 websites for the blog post search
After searching for the blog post on Google, check for the first page results. List those ten blogs or websites somewhere, either in an excel spreadsheet or in notepad. List the sites in ascending order of SERP.
- Run Alexa search for those websites
Once you have the list of websites that write content similar to yours, I want you to visit their alexa rank page. The alexa rank page for any website can be reached by visiting following URL – https://alexa.com/siteinfo/sitedomain/ . For example, here I choose masterblogging.com and check the alexa page for that.
- Create list of their top 5 search terms
Alexa’s free tool shows you top 5 keywords of any website, sorted by the percentage of traffic that term gives to a certain website. It means that you can find out which keyword people search the most to visit those 10 websites. So you’ll have keywords which are popular and have a certain search volume. For 10 websites, you will have a list of 50 keywords.
- Filter similar topics or brand keywords from the list
Now, I surely know that sometimes, many blogs do get most of their traffic for a few posts only which means that top 5 blog post ideas you get from alexa might be same. Also, often big websites get traffic for their brand keyword too. Sorting those out, you can easily get 10-20 ideas from the list that are 100% relevant and have definite search volume on Google.
So this is my technique for beginners to get new blog posts ideas without using paid tools at all. All you need is Google search and Alexa’s free website analytics page to get your next big article’s idea.
