QuestionDB is not your typical keyword tool. It can be be incredibly powerful and valuable for writers and marketers, but you need to use it correctly.
To get started, pick a broad keyword. For example, if you're a marketer, you might want to start with "seo" or "backlinks". If you're a nutrition writer, start with something like "keto" or "vegan".
If you choose the right keyword, that will return you a large list of questions.
From there, whether you're using the free or paid version of QuestionDB, you can dive deeper.
Come up with a list of seed keywords either from your experience or from that initial search. For example, if you're a nutrition blogger writing about the keto diet, your keyword list might look like:
And so on...
Then search these individually on QuestionDB, and you will get a list of specific questions about these topics that you can use for content ideas.
And to help you write those topics, toggle the "source" button on so that you can click through to where the question was originally asked (and see what others answered).
Millions of questions have been asked on various websites over time. These questions reveal:
In other words, many great content ideas.
We're compiling these questions into a large, searchable database.
As a freelance writer for many years, who typically has to suggest content ideas on a regular basis, it's usually easy to come up with the first few batches of ideas. And then...it's the most frustrating thing. You pull out your hair for 30-60 minutes at a time, straining just to come up with a short list of ideas.
If you just use most other research tools, you get the same ideas over and over...not so useful.
But because questions are continually added to QuestionDB, it will help you generate content ideas easily on a continuous basis - that's the beauty of it.
