Writing Content for Trending Topics without Being Spammy

Grab a cup of coffee for this blog post.

Quote:
Businesses will frantically look around for new consumer behavior trends. Will the mobile be the future of the web? How will mobile consumption patterns evolve? What products and services are making it to the top of the consumer mind share? How do you explain eco-trends, more-ism, emerging markets, and new technologies? Or as Trend Watching nudges us to think: what's the full-frontal mega-trend of transparency? What are App-scriptions?

Trends are a sure way to latch your content development work on. This kind of content is sure to grab attention, cover new stories, give an interesting twist to your content marketing strategy, and help provide a platform for your customers to base their thinking on. Developing content based on trends also makes you a thought leader and a trend watcher a sure sign of "moving with the times".

So, how do you develop content on such trending topics without coming across as irrelevant? How do you create relevant, engaging content that doesn't add more to the mucky spam flooding the Internet?

The best rule of thumb is to write for humans and not search engines. Most people write content that they call "optimized" but to them that just means it's super readable by Google, but if read aloud by a human would sound like a terribly spun article written by someone who didn't know the language.

I agree with promotions, best thing is to just keep your finger on the pulse, write content for your users and focus on keyword density along the way.

Nice post, its a great opportunity for content writers keeping up with what is trending. The challenging part is to get the latest sources about a certain topic. Thus, it will be a big help of your article will be one of the reliable source for other writers. Make sure that you'll write because you want your target readers to be informed and not only for SEO purposes. It is better to read new information and write about it for the benefit of others and not only for your personal gain. Thanks for sharing though.
