written by


Wondering what to blog about in 2018? Google Trends is a helpful, free tool that will tell you exactly what your audience is searching for and which topics are trending right now.

How to Find Trending Keywords

Google Trends is a free resource that will help you find out whether a keyword is growing or shrinking in popularity as well as find related keywords that are up-and-coming which you might not have considered.
Here’s how to do your own research:

  1. Visit Google Trends.
  2. In this Explore Topics search field type in a general keyword that relates to a topic you’re considering writing about.

First, check out the trend graph to see if the number of monthly searches are going up or down, which indicates popularity – it’s best to use at least 1-2 years as a timeframe since wedding topics tend to be seasonal.

  1. Then, scroll down to the Related Queries section to discover related topics that people are searching for, which can inspire you to select an SEO-friendly topic.
