10 Seconds Secret in Getting Fresh Blogging Idea
I am sure that most of us do agree that getting fresh blogging idea and updates are important to maintain the excitement in our WordPress. Unfortunately, the process in getting those can be hard as it is hard to get control on news that being published every second through blogs and Twitter.
Previously, I have share with you on how to get fresh and new blogging idea through Tweetdeck. In case you have missed the post, you can read the post through below link.
However, the drawback of this method is it will only cover news and buzz from Twitter. How’s about those articles from the million of blogs which not being tweeted yet?
Google – Goldmine of Bloggers
For today post, I would like to share with you the method that I am using for most of the time at the moment. This method will not only cover any news from Twitter and blogs, it will only cover everything that has been indexed by Google.
First of all, let’s assume we want to know what is going on with the new Google Nexus One so that we can blog about it and give the latest update to our blog readers. However, there is always news about it being released and a lot of site claim that they have the latest leaked information about it and there is high chance that we will miss it.
So, how can we know every sites that have such information?
The best way that I can suggest you is through Google. However, it is not simply search and click because the results that will come out are not necessarily the latest one as it is depends on the relevance. Do you want to blog and share with your readers the last month news? I guess not…
When you get the search result for the term that you are searching (in this case, Google Nexus One), you will get roughly the same screen like below.
And to get the any latest news that has just been released, you have to click on the ‘Show Options’ link and click the ‘Latest’ link which you can find at the left hand side.
Right after you click the ‘Latest’ link, every blog posts, website pages and even tweets that have published for the last one hour will appear in your screen. The parts that I love most are it covers almost entire major source of information especially Twitter and the search result page will be kept updated with latest news and tweets as long you keep the page opens in your internet browser.
How can you make full use of this secret?
Especially for those blog which main purpose is not giving latest news and updates to your readers, you can make full use of this great feature by simply creating a new category for your blog specifically. The category will be specifically for latest news and developments.
For example, if your blog is about making money online, you can use the category to give your readers update on any latest news and development that will directly and indirectly impact your readers such as the FTC rules. By doing this, instead of only giving tips which almost all the blogs within you niche do, you can add some variations to your blog by providing latest news which will have impact on your readers.
I am sure your readers will love it.
If you plan to give daily updates, you simply have to click on the ‘Latest’ or ‘Past 24 hours’ links and if you plan to give weekly updates, you can simply use the ‘Past Week’ link. How convenient right?
And to make it easier, simply bookmark the search results page. So, each time you want to get the latest updates, you can simply the button and do not have to keep doing the same process all over again.
