14 Evergreen Content Ideas To Start With
This is a list of evergreen blog post ideas for beginners to create content for your blog.
1- How-To Tutorials
You can always create a how-to tutorial and turn it into an evergreen topic in your niche.
And readers love tutorial posts. It is because these posts are super informative and you are guiding your readers to do something.
And they just have to follow the exact process that you are teaching and do nothing else.
Do you know the most popular post on my blog is “how to find your target audience?” It is because I share a step by step process to help my readers find their target readers.
You can also create how-to content on your blog.
2- Lists Of Something
Lists are never going to die. And readers love them.
You can create so many variations on lists. For example,
- Top influencers in your industry.
- 14 best ways to do something
- 10 free tools you use
And so many more!
I published a list of beginner friendly affiliate programs for new bloggers and I got more than 40 comments in only 30 days.
It is one of the popular posts on my blog.
3- Beginner’s Guide
Always create 2 to 3 beginner guides on popular topics in your niche.
Beginner guides help you establish authority and get backlinks too. I have plenty of beginner guides on my blog two of these that worked well for me are
Plus, you can make a few tweaks to keep them updated.
4- FAQ Posts
This is a great way to get your blog posts in the #0 or “people also ask” section.
So how do you do it?
All you have to do is answer the questions on a topic. And where do you find those questions?
The “people also ask” section.
You can also use tools like Answer The Public to find out the exact questions that your target audience is asking.
5- Glossary Post
This is another awesome way to get organic traffic.
Check out this awesome wordpress glossary by wpbeginner.
It ranks on the first page of Google for the term “blogging glossary.”
Over time you can rank your massive glossary but make sure that you keep it on one topic only.
6- Strategy Post
Do you have a strategy that works very well for you?
It’s time to convert it into a post and get some backlinks for it.
All you have to do is to articulate your strategy well using the right keywords and then share it with other bloggers in your niche to check if they are willing to link to it.
Most of them might not be but that’s okay. Focus on getting high quality backlinks. You don’t need plenty.
7- Topic Clusters
Do you want to hear a secret?
You can rank for competitive keywords!
All you have to do is to create topic clusters. These are a group of 4 to 6 blog posts on a similar topic.
For example, you want to write a guide on SEO. So there are other topics like link building, guest blogging, site audit, and more that you would want to cover but if you do it in a single post then it would become a long boring guide.
So you can create the main post on SEO and sub posts on those other topics and link them internally.
Over time your posts will start ranking.
8- Common Mistakes In Your Niche
Another great evergreen content idea is to create a massive list of common mistakes.
People do their best to avoid mistakes and that’s why these blog posts are popular.
For example, I updated my blog post about the first year blogging mistakes I made on my blog and it got so many views.
Why? Because new bloggers want to avoid those mistakes and old bloggers find them relatable.
9- Blog Series
Blog series ranks quickly.
Do you know that I wrote a Pinterest series? The third post of the series got indexed within 30 days.
Can you believe it?
My best guess is because I had interlinked the parts immediately after publishing them.
BTW, I’ve linked the Pinterest series below if you want to have a look at them.
- How To Set Up A Business Account On Pinterest?
- All About Pinterest Boards
- How To Create Pinterest Pins?
- The Pinterest Strategy You Should Follow
10- Comparison Post
You can create comparison posts of the products you use.
This way you can add affiliate links and make some money with them.
Or you have two ways of doing something. You can compare both methods to see which one brings better and faster results.
Checklists work well. These are list posts but centered around one topic.
For example, I have written a guest post for Ana and it is a checklist for the best SEO practices for 2021.
12- Resources Post
You might have heard that creating a resource library isn’t that helpful but it is not true.
I have a resource library where I have collected all the tools that I use for running my blog and I get a lot of visitors to it monthly.
I’ve recently optimized it with keywords and I’m sure in some days it will start ranking.
13- Best Blogs In Your Niche
This is a great way to get some backlinks as well as build relationships with other bloggers.
Do you follow some bloggers in your niche? Then reach out to them and make a massive list of your favorite bloggers.
My friend Angie from She Can Blog created a similar list and I’m on the list too. (Honoured!)
So these were some of the best blog post ideas for bloggers. If you want more then download this list of 150+ blog post ideas.
How To Find Evergreen Content Ideas?
Here are some ways I use to find evergreen content ideas.
1- Google Search
The first step is always a quick Google search. You will get amazing blog post ideas by doing a Google search.
The two places I check are
- The “People Also Ask” section and
- Google recommended keywords.
Google shows examples of those questions that people are asking. You can answer these questions and get on the first page.
2- Using Tools
Google trends is a free tool that shows a graphical trend of a keyword in one year. You can also compare two different keywords to find out which one would be better to target.
Buzzsumo is a premium tool that shows the top performing content based on their social shares.
3- Finding The Right Keywords
Many times while doing keyword research I find potential ideas for another topic.
And I end up creating content on those keywords.
You can also use the same trick to find ideas for writing blog posts.
4- Competition Analysis
I kept the best for the last.
Finding the top performing content ideas of your competitors and then creating a better version of them puts you forward in the race.
You can use Ubersuggest to find out the blog posts of your competitors.
5- Using Blog Post Ideas Generator
If you are not sure how to get blog post ideas then you can use the free tools.
