    Hi guys,

    We're starting up a new online magazine in a specific niche. However, we're finding a bit difficult to source topics (or better, proper articles) to write about. We know our niche pretty well but having to write 2 articles a day is a challenge.

    Is there any tool out there that we can use to identify topics people are interested into?

    I'm using a combination of Google Keyword Tool and BuzzSumo so far but, still, looking for something better.

    Many thanks for your help!

    There isn't any specific tool, specific for this task. As people mentioned, you can only look through the info available online and maybe stumble onto something useful. If you're just one person, working on content management, trying to come up with this much stuff on daily basis, you're going to have a bad time.

    The best thing is to organize a common list, where people could post their ideas and you could then refine them. Like a Trello board or something.

    A weekly brainstorming session could also work. That's how the top tier guys do it. They don't just feed on trends, they create them.

    Hey buddy the best thing I would say is stick to your keywords and try to have the relevant topics and similar keywords in ur H2 or in your content so that It can help u better,,,And there are many tolls like hubspot blog topic generator and many but the best thing will be use google addwords keyword planner and write contents following the search volume and relevency of keywords,,,

    have a great day,,,
