Blog Comments
If you’ve got a blog look at the comments left and take some direction from them. Usually readers will indicate if a post was of interest to them and why. The more comments you get on a particular post the more popular the topic is to readers. Branch out from popular post with sub-topics and write about them.

No Blog No Problem If you don’t have your own blog visit sites within your niche and review the comments left there for ideas. Remember you’re looking at comments left by ‘real’ people and their indications as to what is of interest to them is a gold mine of ideas for your article writing.


This fast growing social network site is a great source of popular and up to date topics. Just log in and look on the right hand side of the screen for trending topics. This is where members are having smaller discussions on issues and/or events that are of interest to them. Twitter is an invaluable real time search engine and can be used for many different research projects.

Search a Topic Using Google Suggest Tool

When you’re typing a particular topic into the menu bar while doing a search on Google a drop down menu will appear suggesting other popular searches. By taking each suggestion and retyping them into the search bar you’ll come up with a whole new list of ‘popular’ suggestions to research or write about. These are topics people have been searching for. Google wants you to provide solutions for these areas. So it becomes a no brainer to actually provide information for these searches.

Keyword Research
Take keywords relative to your area of interest and search for other keywords you can use. Similar to using the Google Keyword Suggestion tool we spoke of above here you’ll re-enter popular keywords you found to develop a whole new list of words or phrases. Fresh ideas for hot topics to write about. Simply target the most searched upon words since this indicates their popularity.


Listen to what people around you are talking about.

Your friends can become a great source of ideas if you listen carefully to their stories.


In a nutshell you will be writing  articles based upon the popularity of the topic itself and not by choosing your topics on a whim. Anybody that composes content on a regular basis always appreciates any article writing tips that will make things easier.
