How to Write a Hub or Article about an Evergreen Topic
Evergreen refers to getting a steady form of traffic. Evergreen topicsare topics that will always be around and people will always search for it on the Internet. A good example of evergreen topics is the “how to” subjects. For instance, “How to change a light bulb” is a simple topic that will not be overlooked. We will always have light bulbs, whether they are LED or Energy Efficient bulbs. Evergreen topics are subjects that visitors search the web for continuously.
How do I know if my topic is an Evergreen one? First off,do some research. If you produce a subject and you are wondering if it is an evergreen topic, use a keyword tool search (if you Google keyword tool you will find one). Type in your topic and search the keywords. Most of the keyword tools will tell you how many times those keywords are searched over a specific amount of time. If it is a large number, then you might be on the right trail. And at the same time you are finding the right keywords for the theme of your article.
Usually if you are not talking about the latest fad or craze or even a news item you may be on the right track. Another way to figure out if it is an evergreen topic is to Google it directly. Google is a powerful tool that can be used to your advantage. I find a lot out just by asking a question right into the Google search bar and I usually have a response of “Wow, I am not the only one who has wondered that very same thing.”
The hardest part of using Google for looking up “good evergreen topics” is possibly getting the run around and they don’t just come out and say what the topics are, so you are stuck wondering if you are on the right path. Below you will find some generic examples that might assist you of evergreen topics.
- Work (searching for)
- Love and dating
- “How to” stuff
These items above will always be around. Mostly, you should write about what interests you. The more passionate you are about the subjects, the better your articles will sound. Be patient with your hubs. If you write it, the traffic will flow.
If you are still trying to figure out good topics to write about, think about this; what would you like to read? What hobbies do you like to do and learn more about? Do you have any projects coming up that you can outline and write about? Now search it. See what comes up. If others are searching for it too, meaning there are answers and other articles on the same subject, then write about it. Don’t be scared to write about a subject that has already been written. Maybe you have some additional point of views that you can make in the article. No one is perfect and things change daily. There may be a more efficient way to do something. Share it in a hub or blog it.
I may be way off base in this article, but this is my true feelings and thoughts on the subject and what I am writing about I believe 100%. I enjoy writing. I have been on Hubpages now for 13 days and I have 11 articles written and I am shooting for the $1 mark already. I love to write and I started out writing poetry and short stories in the sixth grade and I have been writing ever since. Writing can come easy to you as long as you like to write. I cannot stress that enough. If you don’t like to write and you are on Hubpages only to make money, you may not succeed. Most people want to read articles that are well written and the author knows the subject whether they learned first hand through their own lives or they have done a lot of research on the matter.
So if you are looking for excellent subject matter, look into your own life and see what has always attracted you. Write about it. It may be an evergreen topic. You may surprise yourself on the article you inscribe. I find myself writing more and more everyday and it seems as though I can’t stop. Good luck to you and I wish you a fun, prosperous journey.
