Possible Inspirations for HubTopics

  1. sunforged profile image77
    sunforgedposted 8 years ago

    Seen some forum threads related to topic ideas.

    Possible Inspirations:

    Google Trends

    http://www.google.com/trends


    Yahoo Buzz

    http://buzz.yahoo.com/


    Hubs Idea Bank

    http://hubpages.com/ideabank/


    The Requested Content section of any other writing site you may be part of..you dont have to write it for them!


    ebay Pulse

    http://pulse.ebay.com/

    Amazon Bestsellers by Topic

    amazon.com no specific links just check bestsellers by category

    http://www.amazon.com/bestsellers  (Thanks Jeffrey Neal)



    Brand New Commercials! i jumped on the 299 PS3 wagon the first day i saw an ad, for a couple of hundred dollars profit! (The wagon has left)

    Twitter Trends ( Twitter is probably the fastest trending sources ever)

    http://search.twitter.com/


    Hot forum topics here!

    Heres a good one, with the rise of the 30DC Challenge and Keyword Academy targeting Hubpages, you will see a lot of marketers hitting hubpages for backlinks, if you watch the new hubs thread....there keywords which are PROBABLY well researched will be plain as day in the URL and title...if you can do it better! jump on it.

    http://hubpages.com/hubs/latest/


    News you see repeated in your facebook feeds?

    These are just starting off points, but its pretty easy to find topics that are well searched and hopefully evergreen through some quick research and these sources.

    Got any to add?


    Thanks GirlyGirl

      Great Idea Sunforged. Personally, I cant find many good ideas lately. January is a bad month in my opinion, no holiday traffic im getting lowest views I had in months.

      Dogpile's search spy. See what people are searching for online. Luckily there is an omit adult term feature. There is some seriously disturbing stuff, otherwise.

      Dogpile search spy is awesome big_smile true about some of them disturbing searches too, makes you wonder about that person in real life hmm can be creepy but others inspire ideas smile

      I spent a long time looking at SearchSpy and I have nothing to show for it.

      sunforgedposted 8 years ago

      I just looked at search spy and its exactly the opposite of what I would use...the other sources show hot trends, proven search terms.

      The only difficulty falls in finding something that isnt already saturated

      search spy is toooo real time..tooooo much chaff

      It's all depends on ones perspective big_smile

        I guess anything could serve as "inspiration" which was my unfortunate title..but the intention was find sources of inspiration that would make for well trafficked and profitable hubpages (which is kind of implied)

        With a keyword tool and the sources provided anyone could find a really successful/trafficked topic/keyword.

        Maybe, Im missing an option in search spy? if it has any ranking tools or topic searches...it could be useful...but I just saw a collective collection of the worlds brain farts wink

      If you've written about something you want to write about again but don't want to write about the exact same issue, here's what I do:

      Enter your query into Google. Click on "options" and then click on the "wonder wheel" option. It will show you searches related to your search query.

      In other words, free ideas for stuff you may already be able to write about.

      I cant believe I forgot the wonder wheel! Maybe I jsut didnt want to share such an awesome tool..you know subconsciously and all that


      added to the list. great suggestion!

      1. thranax profile image51
        thranaxposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        If your title was to help "others" find inspiration on what to write about and get a term well trafficked and beneficial to them, why would you withhold any helpful information? That is...if the true meaning of the forum post is for "others". smile

      Also, I nearly forgot about this one as well.

      http://www.amazon.com/bestsellers

      This one can be used to come up with all sorts of ideas by using the category list on the left.

      Another thing I have done is to simply look at the hubpages Topics in the links up top, and drill though the various topics.  Sometimes the headings are enough to get my brain moving on a new set of hub topics.
