Bonus Tips to Find Blog Post Ideas
Keyword Generator is a free keyword research tool that we made at WPBeginner. It allows you to perform in-depth keyword research to find dozens of blog post ideas to write about.
If you are using a paid Semrush account, then you will also see Keyword Clusters. These are semantically related keywords, which are different phrases related to a single topic. You can use them to create more authoritative content on any topic.
3. Blog Post Idea Generator (Free)
The three tools we talked about in this article can help you very quickly generate hundreds of blog post ideas. However, there are a few other things you can do to refine these ideas and find more related topics to write about.
Finally, you will find related searches at the bottom of the page. These are relevant keywords and search terms that can be used as separate blog post ideas.
Optimizing Your Blog Post Ideas
Another important thing to consider when choosing blog ideas is your audience interest.
1. Topic Research Tool
Semrush includes two tools that both work great for generating blog post ideas. We will now take a look at both of them.
The results will show you related topics as cards that you can click to expand and view all the content ideas for that topic.
You will also see the subtopic search volume, how easy it is to rank for (the difficulty level), and the topic efficiency. Topic efficiency is calculated by considering both the search volume and the difficulty level.
The plugin will also show you practical recommendations to improve the SEO score.
You may also see the ‘People also ask’ section. This shows related questions people are looking for about a particular topic.
You can include those topics in your blog post or save them to check later.
Then, just go to the All in One SEO panel at the bottom of the WordPress content editor and enter a focus keyword for your blog post.
1. Topical Relevance
2. Search Volume / Audience Interest
Next, you will want to see if there is any search volume for the topic you want to write about. Search volume is the average number of searches for that keyword in top search engines.
On the search results page, you will see your top competitors. Visiting these results will give you an idea of how your competitors have covered this topic.
We hope this article helped you generate blog post ideas to fill up your editorial calendar for weeks. You may also want to see our complete WordPress SEO guide or take a look at the best blog examples to follow for inspiration.
Note: Semrush also offers a limited free account, which is suitable for beginners on a budget.
The Keyword Magic tool is a powerful keyword research tool built into the Semrush toolkit. It allows you to simply enter a keyword or topic to find related keywords with a ton of useful data.
Whether you are just starting a blog or have been blogging for some time, you will learn that not all blog post ideas are equal. Plus, coming up with new articles requires effort, time, and resources.
The blog post ideas you choose should be relevant to the main topic of your blogging niche or industry. For example, if you run a travel blog, then it wouldn’t make sense to start writing articles about pet care.
These ideas can be sorted by the following:
- Alphabetical – Related keywords that people search for in Google in alphabetical order.
- Prepositions – Related keywords that include prepositions like for, near, is, to, and so on.
- Questions – Related long-tail topics organized as questions.
Note: There is also a free version called All in One SEO Lite that you can use. However, we recommend upgrading to a pro plan to unlock the plugin’s full potential.
