Content Generation Idea: Using Local Radio Talk Shows
Earlier on I posted about how you can use your local newspapers for coming up with content ideas for your site or blog. And by doing that and scouting your local newspapers, you can not only use them to come up with content ideas for your site or blog. And very good content ideas that can also help with improving your local rankings too. But the same thing can also be done by listening to those local radio stations to you!
By just tuning in and listening to the local radio broadcasts for your area, city or town (and most local towns have their own local radio station) you can get to hear about those local events and happenings that have or will be taking place. Which you can then touch upon on your site or blog with your covering of that story and your own take upon it. Things to know, what's actually happening, who was or who'll be attending. Things like that. And of course, your own personal thoughts and or opinions on it.
The great thing about listening to your local radio station is that they are often the first to touch upon a story before the local papers have a time to print and press it. So by just listening out, or even listening in to it, depending on your philosophical bent, you can get to hear and learn about local events, stories and happenings in your local area, town or city which you can then get to cover upon your site or blog.
And of course, if you are one of the first websites to cover this story, you'll be the one that Google lists first for it when someone searches for it online. That can help you to receive more traffic to your site as well as help to improve your local rankings too when you use the keywords that are relevant and applicable for your local area!
And that's all there really is to this content generation idea! Just tuning into and listening to your local radio stations. The best times is when they play their news broadcasts as they will often cover stories that are happening locally to you. You can then research into this a little to find out more about it which you can then spin into a news story on your site or blog.
