#1 Underscore Technique in Google Search Box

This is a technique very few people know about.

First, type your main keyword or topic in Google, but don’t press enter.

Instead, put an underscore (“_”) and one space before your main keyword in the Google search box.

Google will show you word suggestions that appear before your keyword.

Search Engine Optimization blog topics

These are extremely lesser-known topics your competitions might not know about.

#2 Google Suggested Keywords as Topics

When Google is there, you don’t need to fear 🙂

Start with Google to find awesome blogging topic ideas.

Here is how:

First, search for your main keyword in Google and hit the space button.

Google Keyword suggestion

Google will start suggesting keywords based on your searched keyword.

This is called the Autosuggest…

If you look closely, you will see various long-tail keywords.

In this case:

These are awesome and different topic ideas for your blog.

#3 Google Question-Based Searches (How, Why, When etc.)

This is a super helpful technique to get untapped blog topic ideas.

Again you have to do Google search…

First, search for your main keyword or topic on Google.

Then, type “Why” “How” “What” “Where” “When” etc. before your keyword.

Here are a few examples:

I’m using “digital marketing” as my keyword in this example.

Google Question Based Searches

Why Digital Marketing a blog topic

This technique will show you question-based topics that your target audience searches for in Google.

I personally love this process to find content ideas for a blog post.

#4 Searches related to feature in Google

If you search a keyword in Google and scroll down to the bottom of Google’s search results there’s a section called, “Searches related to…and your searched keyword”

For example:

Then, scroll down at the bottom of Google search results.

You will see something like this:

This area is a golden place for awesome long-tail keywords.

These long-tail keywords are your potential blog topics.

#5 Analyze People Also Ask Box

You’ve likely seen the People Also Ask box in Google’s search results.

Google shows similar questions in this box, that are closely or directly related to our searched keyword.

why content marketing is important

Another cool feature of this People also ask box is, when you click any of the questions from the box, it will automatically start showing even more questions (In other words topics).

For example:

Then you will see something like this:

Is this not a HUGE opportunity?

In short: A GOLDEN place for your new blog post topic ideas.
