As a blogger, you’re always challenged to post new content frequently. That leads to another challenge: coming up with new topics that will interest your readers and, in turn, be shared. There’s now an amazing freemium tool that can make this task easier than ever before and it’s called BuzzSumo.
What Is BuzzSumo?
At its simplest, BuzzSumo is a way to see what kind of content is shared the most, while learning about the key influencers in the industry you write about. When BuzzSumo pulls this information and aggregates it for you, you’ll then be able to view how many shares a piece of content has received across all the major social media sites. Since the goal of any of your posts might be to go viral, this is a great tool to use to see what people are reading and sharing. Plus, it can serve to inspire you in a variety of ways too. read more

In the crazy rush to get fresh new content out to potential readers, many bloggers often find themselves in a very stressful position. Creating unique, hard hitting content is not easy work and depending on the niche you’re targeting, a “shot-gun blast” kind of approach may be killing both you and your blog’s potential.

It’s difficult to be competitive when there’s just so much information already available for consumption. There’s a good chance that whatever you decide to write, has already been covered really well by a major blogger. So how do you stand out from the crowd? And how do you keep true to yourself as a writer and stay on point in niches that seem to be saturated? read more

No one can refute that there is an overwhelming amount of content online today, with thousands and thousands being added every hour. However, only a few of these are relevant and worthy enough to get noticed and actually accrue traffic, so it is important to make any blog posts you publish extremely pointed and focused.
Publishing content that covers several different topics at once isn’t going to engage and keep your readers’ interest. This is why it is important to have a one-track mind when it comes to blog post topic brainstorming. Single topic posts can go more in-depth and provide more information. They are also better for ranking on more specific longtail keywords from an SEO perspective.
