With a little help from our friends at Google Trends, we’re sharing January’s top searches on Google to inspire you to start off the new year with some fresh content. So let’s find out what topics everyone’s searching for this month.
Resolve to create about New Year’s Resolutions
When January comes around, resolutions are top of mind. Sure, lots of us break our resolutions a week (a day?) later, but hey, at least we’re trying…
The top 5 questions searched in the U.S. about resolutions are:
- What is a New Year’s resolution?
- How to keep New Year’s resolutions?
- What are some good New Year’s resolutions?
- How many New Year’s resolutions fail?
- Why do New Year’s resolutions fail?
If you’re thinking about crafting content around this topic, a good angle could be offering simple, actionable tips for your audience to stay motivated and on track to maintain their resolutions, whether it be eating healthier, getting their homes organized, or staying on budget.
Bank on interest in financial matters
Speaking of finances, some of us may be looking at our bank accounts, wondering how to make up for all we spent on gifts and/or holiday travel last month. Every January, search terms like “save money,” “savings,” “paycheck” and “wage” peak in the U.S. And nationwide, top resolutions-focused searches include “financial new year’s resolutions,” “professional new year’s resolutions,” “work new year’s resolutions,” and “teambuilding new year’s resolutions.” Think about creating content on money matters that speak to your niche — e.g., best shopping deals, how to ask for a raise, redecorating on the cheap, how to monetize your blog, and so on.
