STRUGGLING TO THINK OF SEO-FRIENDLY CONTENT IDEAS?
Here’s a FREE tool I use when I’m in a slump!
AnswerthePublic is a simple-to-use tool that will generate the most common inquiries related to your topic…
ie, it will show you this pretty web of questions users are typing into search engines to find information about your topic
For example, here I have typed in “web design” and it shows a bunch of questions, such as “where to learn web design” and “which web design company is best”.
you will be answering a direct question your audience may have about this topic.
👆 Remember, you still want to write with your audience in mind, so if they are more interested in HIRING a designer than LEARNING it themselves, I would avoid using the first key phrase.
Check out this tool at answerthepublic.com and let me know what you think!
Here Is The Tools That You Need So Lets Get Started
HootSuite is a platform for social media management that makes scheduling and publishing posts a piece of cake. You can use its Instagram options for scheduling your posts in advance, not having to worry about forgetting to publish them.
Once you have prepared your posts, you can move on to dealing with other issues. When the publishing time comes, HootSuite will send you a notification. Instagram, like any other social media, is overflowing with posts and ads. So, it is important to post content on a regular basis, and this tool will help you keep up with the schedule.
For those of you who make extensive use of Twitter as a content promotion channel and have a blog on WordPress, CoSchedule can be of great help.
This plugin turns some of your post passages into tweetable content to be then shared by your followers. It is simple and extremely useful.
Ahrefs is a massive suite of powerful SEO tools you can use to propel your content toward those first few pages displayed by search engines. Perhaps the most intriguing of the bunch is Site Explorer, which helps you keep an eye on your competition, as it can keep track of their SEO strategy.
Tracking competitors (and sometimes partners) allows you to figure out why they’re successful, and to improve upon that to make your content better. Content Explorer, on the other hand, enables you to check out which content is trending within a certain niche based on a total number of social media shares. It even lets you see who shared the content, so you can contact them directly.
In addition to providing awesome content for your readership, you also need to be mindful when it comes to the timing of your posts. Buffer is an app which enables you to not only manage and schedule your posts across all social media accounts.
You can also keep track of various stats which you can use to determine which day of the week or time of day is the most effective for posting new content.
Buffer also has its own image-enhancing tool called Pablo, which helps you add text on top of your images and some effects to make them shine.
One of the most effective ways of getting your content to reach the right audience, and enough of it, is to get in touch with some of the influencers in content marketing, which is easier said than done. Not if you use Buzzstream, though.
It can help you in finding stuff like contact information and social media accounts of the most influential players in the industry, which provides you with the opportunity to establish any collaboration with them and promote your work.
Whenever you curate and place a link to some other website which hosts content your readers may find useful. Sniply will pop up and show a call-to-action and a link that leads back to your website. This tool is an absolute gem which you need to have in your arsenal.
Thus, to understand whether you’ve optimized your content well enough, use an SEO plugin like Yoast. It includes keyword analysis, page content analysis and suggestions on how to tune it up. The features also include sitemap support to help Google and Bing index your blog faster.
To progress, you always need to analyze what’s behind the rise and fall of traffic to your website. Google Search Console provides detailed analytics on the frequency of your blog visits. They allow sorting out data by country and find out what search queries your blog guests usually type in.
You can also choose posts that lack traffic and “beef them up” by adding links to other websites or posts.
Please kindly try these applications at your free time and see how they work.
