Ideas For Writing An Article

You have started your training and have been moving along nicely so far, you have your site set up, you have your main kw indexed now it is time to add some content and watch your site rise in the ranks. First, you need some ideas for writing an article, and a lot of them as you plan to load your site with quality content from top to bottom.

Organize First

Business goes much easier when you have a plan and article marketing is no different, and getting enough ideas to write can be a challenge, not so much, if you are organized.

When doing your kw research don’t stop at one, keep it going and get yourself a list of keywords that you can do an article for your site or the directories. Something you can draw on when wanting to write some content for your site, it is there sitting waiting for you to start, just add words.

Forums

I get so many article ideas from the forums, join a few forums in your niche and see what real people are saying about your niche what they like, don’t like, what they think of the product you will learn so much from these forums, it is just crazy. For sure, this is one of my go to, for article ideas.

News

There is never a shortage of news in the world today, just about anything that you can think of. There are news releases on any new product hitting the market, how the product is selling, what the public is thinking of it. You can of course go to many news sites on the internet and keep a pen and paper around when watching the news on T.V. you just might get the next big idea.

Friends

It is just crazy at the info you can get just by talking to your friends. Listen to what they are saying about certain things, the newest shoes, the newest I-pod or new game. Take note of what they are saying and I am sure you can get a few good article ideas just form visiting.

Articles | Others

Yes take a read of other peoples articles, see what others in your niche are saying. I am not saying to copy their article just the idea, do your own research and write it up in your own special style. Nothing wrong with this method and you will learn so much more about your niche or product as you go along.

Google Trends

I can’t leave this topic without a quick mention of Google Trends, have you ever noticed when you type your keywords into Google it comes up with 4 or 5 other keyword phrases, below yours. They are keyword phrases that people are typing into goggles search engine, that relate directly to your search.

Great place to get ideas that people are actually searching for, type in a keyword into Google then beside it start off typing in letters start off with a-b-c etc. see what comes up, you will come up with hundreds of ideas this way.

Just a few ways to come up with ideas for writing articles, put your imagination to work, start using awesome titles and the proper anchor text in your articles and wait for the traffic to show up.
