No I'm not talking about taking questions from the public people and then answering them. Although with this content generation idea, you'll be using something that's called "Answer The Public" from answerthepublic.com and here you'll learn about what Answer The Public is, how it works and how it can help you come up with an infinite amount of content generation ideas that are perfect for you!
Okay so Answer The Public is basically a search engine right but with a difference, it's an idea generator and by just searching for some keywords or headlines on something, Answerthepublic will return to you everything it knows about that but categorized by questions and prepositions alphabetically all in a visually pleasing way on on a word map which you can then download and use later on again and again.
Basically, you ask it a question. Like "where to find a writer" and from that, it will look at the hints, the motivations and emotions of the people behind those search queries and then structure the search results into more possible questions that people that ask those questions ask. Such as the where and the how. But in a visually appealing way you can use and interact with.
Answerthepublic truly is an amazing search tool. I suggest you to read their about us page which explains how they come about and how they work in more detail. But for the purpose of Content Generation Idea 29: this is how you can use it for that reason!
As you can see from the screenshot above. The search for "where to find a writer" returned and revealed a ton of similar related questions that could all be used for content ideas. Scroll down even more to the bottom of the page and you'll see all the questions alphabetically which you can base content on.
And that's basically using Answerthepublic search engine for coming up with content ideas, but in a more structured, visually appealing way. It can do a lot more than this and you can have a lot of fun with it just seeing what it returns from the different questions and keywords you search with. As you can see!
Do you use Answerthepublic for this reason or any other?
