120px-lupanaencyklopedii.jpgLooking for fresh ideas for your AC content? Don’t limit yourself to the AC library, or the Google and Yahoo! homepages.

There are many tools and resources available to capture what people are actually searching for, and this can help you brainstorm unique and creative content for your writing. No matter what field or subject you tend to ‘specialize’ in, simply exploring different categories and topics can spark your creativity that lead you towards a fresh idea.

One of the best ways to keep up with the latest trends and searches is by using free tracking tools on the web.

Google Trends, AOL Hot Searches, and DogPile Search Spy are just a few tools that can help you find out what people are searching for, and what types of articles may bring you some extra page views this season. Some of these can be very helpful in narrowing down a niche, while others won’t offer much value.

2. Give you a sense of the topics and ideas that people will actually read

3. Allow you to research new niche topics and ideas in depth

4. Keep you current with the latest trends and news so you can develop a story around it

5. Help you prioritize the order that you publish your work; hot trends today can disappear in a few weeks, so you can focus on those first to get ahead
