What happens when you’ve feel you’ve ran yourself dry when it comes to fresh and good content to present on your various blogs, sites, and social networks? We’ve all hit this brick wall once or twice in our SEO careers. Some firms post upwards of 2-3 times in a day. How do you keep the new, fresh topics popping up in your head?
Sure you can look in the news headlines and pick a few of them from there and through in your thoughts and comments on the situation, but that will only take you so far.
Try holding Q&A sessions on your social networks:
These Q&A sessions not only can land you some new clients potentially, but you can also see what is being asked amongst your followers as well. What are the most common questions being asked? Is there a pattern? Are certain questions being asked enough times to warrant an article or blog post? Maybe.
You’re killing two birds with one stone. Not only are you making yourself accessible to your followers, but your also garnering enough questions to create content where in turn will get you even more traffic to your sites and blogs. Pretty easy right?
Your Analytics can be a gold-mine:
Whether you are using Yahoo, Google, Bing, or some other Analytics on your sites, you can find hidden content as well.
Sure you optimize your sites for specific keywords and you should see those are your prominent forms of traffic when it comes to organic search, but what about those long tailed keywords as well?
Yes, those can be a key to your future content writing endeavors.
In a given month, you’ll get a ton of keywords used that landed on your sites and blogs. Those keywords can be an untapped gold-mine of content that you might have otherwise looked into before. Be careful of patterns, or specific keywords being used in your analytics. Chances are, if you see a pattern forming, you should look a little deeper into it and see what content can be created from it.
There are many different ways that content can be created. The great thing about it, is that you already have a ton of different pieces of new content laying right in front of you. You just have to dig through it a little and find it.
