How to Find Blogging Ideas Using Google

Many bloggers, and yes for me too occasionally experience "bloggers block" that limits the flow of ideas when blogging. No matter if you're a housewife, student or jobless, blogging can turn you into a successful entrepreneur if applied correctly. Several strategies such as backlink tags are easy to implement, but churning out new, original post day after day is often a challenge.

Finding new ideas is one of the difficult aspect in blogging. Blog ideas can be obtained from many sources, including current news, own experience, customer interaction. However, another great way to search for ideas is simply using Google instant search.

To use this feature, first enable real-time updating for your web browser (chrome). Click on the wrench icon and select Options for Windows, preferences for Mac and Settings on chrome OS. Now click the basic tab,  and check the box next to "Enable Instant for faster searching".

The way to use this it is to type keywords that are related to your industry, and see what Google fills in for you. For example, say you run a holiday blog and you're looking for ideas. Below are some examples of searches you could do:

By simply typing 'wedding' on the search box, you are presented with some long tail keyword options that could turn into blog posts or topics. Here is another example:

Simply by typing a long tail keyword 'wedding venues' as show-cased from your first search. You get some instant ideas that can be used to write articles of great titles. For example:

  • "Wedding venues in Nairobi: an interview with two local wedding planners" 
  • "Wedding venues in Karen: still at the heart of Nairobi City  

By starting your article or blog title with these search terms, you are aligning your site with phrases that people are actually searching on. This increases your chances of being listed on the first page of Google. Thus, making your content to be easily found leading to an increase in traffic.

Next time, before you create a site or a topic for your next blog post, head over to Google to discover keywords which would be relevant to your site; eventually improving your search engine optimization (SEO)

How farmers can double their bean yield production

"As Jack slept, the beans germinated in the soil, and by morning a big beanstalk grew in their place. When Jack saw the great beanstalk, he immediately decided to climb..." This is a classic scenario of 'Jack and the Beanstalk' fairy tale. The same is true for Kenya's bean variety that climbs and spreads on sticks producing double the yield of local varieties.

Due to subdivision of land in Kenya, farmers are not able to produce enough beans to feed the 38.6 million people living in Kenya.This is mainly due to shrinking land sizes. This is the reason why high yielding varieties of beans that only need a small area to grow has been developed. These new varieties of beans require support with stakes (sticks) to climb on when they are growing.

The beans can grow up to a height of 3.5 meters. The long stems of this variety of beans enable it to produce more pods as compared to the normal bean varieties (bush bean).   With good management climbing beans can produce u…

Herbal Plants used for Alternative Medicine with no side effect

In a sad note, most indigenous informants keep herbal knowledge, especially the actual preparation methods, strictly secret. Luckily, an aged medicine man from Gatundu in Central Kenya, whose great knowledge of medicinal plants facilitated the write-up of this article.

According to the aged medicine man, simply boil the leaves, roots or the bark; add honey or milk or soup to sweeten the concoction. He recommends taking a glass in the morning and in the evening for preventive measures. 
He cautions on their medicinal uses which should be considered as neither preparation methods nor dosage prescription are provided. This is a topic that would require much more time and I have decided to leave it for part two of this article.
