Blogging Topic Generator Tools

5 resources for when you are looking for a new topic to write about

Blogging isn’t easy.

Constantly coming up with that many creative articles on a daily basis can be draining. However, it is essential if you want to have a thoroughly successful blog. Depending on your content marketing goals, you’ll want to start off posting a couple times a week and slowly increase to one post per day (or more).

According to Neil Patel, top blogs such as Forbes and TechCrunch post 1000–1500 posts per month. While your average business doesn’t need to post that often, it is important to establish and stick to a consistent posting schedule for your blog.

While it’s helpful to have more than one person contributing to your blog content, we know that’s not always feasible. And even if you have a team of content writers, creating quality, creative topics on a daily basis can be draining for anyone. Luckily, the internet is full of inspiration right at your fingertips. To help make the process even easier, I’ve collected a list of the top blog topic generators available on the web for you. Hopefully these tools will help you generate new article ideas.


1. HubSpot’s Blog Topic Generator

One of the most widely-used free tools, HubSpot’s blog topic generator is definitely worth bookmarking. You get a handful of blog topic ideas in just one click — which definitely helps get those creative juices flowing.

How it works:

You insert the top three nouns you want your blog post to be about and HubSpot generates a list of relevant topics.

For example, I typed in “blogging,” “writing,” and “medium,” as you can see below and HubSpot created a week’s worth of blog topics for us.


2. Portent’s Content Idea Generator

This topic generator may be a contender to HubSpot’s. Not only does it suggest a blog title, it offers little tips and reasons on why and how said title can be successful.

And if you continue to scroll down the page after you search for a title, they offer even more resources to help you take your newly generated topic and create a content strategy around it.

How it works:

Simply type in a keyword or topic of your choice, then click the arrow (or hit the Enter key) to generate!

Portent’s generator will then list a title based on your subject, and explain why each word of the title is useful.

If you’re not happy with the first choice it gives you, click the refresh symbol and it will continuously generate blog titles based on your subject. And remember to scroll down for extra help tips on curating your content.

3. Buzzsumo

Buzzsumo is similar to HubSpot’s tool, but it does so much more. Rather than just list blog title ideas, Buzzsumo will list the most popular articles on the topic you’re searching. It analyzes what content performs best, so you can see what your target audience is most interested in reading about.

How it works:

On the homepage, you can enter a topic or domain to search, and Buzzsumo will list the top articles relevant to that topic or domain.

For example, we typed in “medium writing,” and Buzzsumo came up with this list of articles about marketing with the most engagement on social media.

This is one of the top tools for generating blog ideas because not only does it give you inspiration, it shows the number of shares and social engagements the content receives, identifies key sharers, displays backlinks, and shows you top trending content.

So, not only do you get inspiration for your blog, you’ll be able to see what type of content performs best and resonates with your audience.

It’s important to note that the free version limits the number of features you can access, but is still a great tool to utilize.


4. The Blog Post Ideas Generator

The Blog Post Idea Generator from Build Your Own Blog is a bit different in that you don’t put in any keyword related to your industry – you just tap the “generate blog post idea” button and off you go.

How it works:

You’ll need to customize these suggestions to fit your target audience, but you may find something useful. This tool generates random title ideas:

Some titles this random blog topic generator gave when I had my hand at it:

  • X Truths About…

  • X Reasons Why ___________ Always Works

  • Top X Must Have’s For _________

Simply click the generate blog post idea button to see a new idea.


5. Content Row Headline Generator

Content Row’s Link Bait generator is designed to come up with titles that are as close to clickbait as possible.

How it works:

They’re not necessarily perfect titles, but that’s true of any generator. Some of the titles generated using “blogger” as a keyword:

  • What the Government Doesn't Want You to Know About Bloggers

  • 8 Unbelievable Things You Never Knew About Bloggers

  • 10 Reasons Bloggers Is Going to Be Big in [Year]

  • 7 Things Leaders in the Bloggers Industry Want You to Know

  • The Death of Bloggers

On the plus side, it generates quite a few titles, instantly, and you can click to refresh the list. You’ll get a lot of duplicates, but a few originals pop up.


I hope you found these blogging topic generator tools useful! Sometimes they can offer just the creative spark that a writer needs when they are having trouble coming up with ideas.


Until next time!
