Researching PLR Article Topics?

6 replies
Every so often, someone starts a thread trying to figure out what people want in PLR, and it usually dies quickly, for whatever reason. Still, I'd like to expand my PLR efforts, so it would be handy to know what people are buying or looking for.

Can anybody think of a good way to research this? I've got a few ideas, but I'm interested in what you folks think.

    Personally, I find that the best way is to keep track of what people are buying at my PLR site. Of course, this is flawed because I can only make a judgement based on the topics I am currently offering so the only way (for me) to tell if people want PLR on a certain topic is to make a set and see how it sells.

    I tried going through the WSO section to see what was "hot" but you can't really tell from there if people are buying the WSO or not - I know that some of my own WSO's with no comments have sold more than some that have comments/testimonials so trying to figure it out that way is quite inaccurate.

    I also tried several keyword tools but there are so few searches for PLR that I got no results from that.

      Thanks, Lee! I was tinkering with this method. The number of views a product was getting seemed like it might be useful, but I'd need to experiment.

      I've done PLR before, and sometimes I've gotten great sales and sometimes not a darn thing. I'm trying to minimize the latter.

    When I'm writing PLR, I look for at evergreen topics and try to find a unique niche within. The thing is, almost any topic of writing will be sought after by someone on the internet, but in the Warrior forum I find that evergreen topics are definitely the most popular. Sometimes I'll choose an evergreen topic (for example weight loss), and then research through Google Trends and news sites to see what is being most discussed recently.

      Ah, now that's an excellent idea. Thanks, Karen!

    Have you thought about checking ezine articles to see which are the most read articles. If someone was doing research for a new website thats what they might look and then the next thing they would look for was matching plr?

    Another thought - off the cuff so it really is just a wild idea, what about ebay pulse or the ebay collectables that should tell you where the fanatics are and what they are interested in. Maybe you could then use what you find in a keyword tool

    That way when you create the plr you could also offer up the figures to say that it was a popular niche etc. etc...

      One of the things I'm considering is including my keyword research. I'm good at it, so including the words that I used to decide on what PLR to produce might be an additional selling point.

      Right now I'm using a combination of keyword research, evergreen topics and wild guesses to come up with topics. I am open to other approaches.
