My Collection of Keyword and Topic Generation Ideas – Part 1

This is part 1 of my 9 notes for keyword and topic generation ideas. If you missed the first note in this series about casting a wider net in your content creation strategy, you can read it here.

Using Reddit for Keyword Research and Generating Topic Ideas – It seems fitting to start with Reddit since many in the SEO community seem to think that Reddit got a major boost in Google after the last Helpful Content Update.

In this note, I show you how I use subreddits in a niche to identify questions people are asking about a topic. If people are posting about it in Reddit, you can bet people are likely searching for it in Google too.

Alternative to Answer the Public – After NP Digital acquired Answer the Public, I shared this note about an alternative. Surprisingly, Neil hasn’t shat all over this tool like he did with Ubersuggest, but I know many people would not like to put anymore money in that man’s pocket.

Answer the Public was a great tool for finding questions people were asking about a topic, but there is an alternative that many people already have access to, Semrush. Did you know it has this feature?

5 Minutes To a Flood of Topic Ideas – In this note from the summer of 2022, I shared how you can use Google Search Console to find potential content ideas that your site is not serving as well as it could be.

This will work best with a decently established site, but can be an absolute goldmine of topic ideas.

This is one of my favorite and most used tactics. I frequently use this to continue expanding existing topic clusters on sites.
