The One Secret Google Tip To Getting Quality Content Ideas For Free!

Last Update: November 22, 2013

The one thing every affiliate marketer has in common besides wanting to make money is their never-ending quest for great content ideas - quality content that is. Google loves quality content and it is the best way to build traffic organically through the search engines and the various social media channels.

This means becoming an expert in your niche, which means constantly researching on the internet ourselves, looking for quality content to learn from. We look through article directories and niche sites looking for inspiration for our own sites.

But let's face it - a lot of the content is just crap, especially from article directories (Street Articles being the exception of course!). How many times have you went to a site and found a 500+ word article post that was mostly 'filler and fluff' but no real substance? And if you do find great content, you more than likely have to pay for a book or course, which can drain those of us on tight budgets (my nice way of saying those of us who are broke!)

So I want to share with you from my "archive of knowledge" one secret Google tip that you can use right now that will filter out all the crap and give you great content - all for free!

Excited? Well let's get to it then!

All you have to do is go to Google and in the search bar type in this formula:

site:.edu+your keyword pdf

So let's say you are in the personal development niche, this is what it would look like:

What this does is return papers, articles, notes and outlines from some of the greatest minds and scholars in that niche, from most colleges and universities around the world. Using the above example, here is what the first page of Google's return looks like:

While I can't guarantee this method will work for every niche, I can tell you that this is a very powerful method for ensuring that you will get quality content ideas that will keep your readers engaged and coming back for more. And all it will cost you is a little of your time.

To your success!
