5 Tips On How To Research Your Blog Content

1. Google it

What is the first thing we do when searching for anything?

Look for it on the web.

Right – so when conducting your research, type in your blog idea into your search engine.

This is what ‘keywords’ are – the ‘key words’ you type into a web search

See what other people have written or are writing about in this field and use them as inspiration.

Do not copy someone else’s content. Simply use your research as ideas to bulk up your article or blog, or to back up your own content with a link to the original article as reference.

5. What’s in the news?

Current news items are always a great indication on what is trending in your business space at any given time. You can even use these articles in your blog post by creating a link back to them to support your blog content.

If you are using a section of direct content, advice or statistics from another site within your own content, YOU MUST attribute the original article or author.

And don’t forget to let the original author know, and ask if they would like to share your article within their own contacts. This will widen your audience reach.

Don’t have the time to research and write your own content?
