What Is Answer the Public?
Answer the Public is a website that sources users asked questions and provides them back to your search by type of question. This allows you to find a type of phrasing that interests you and that you believe would be the valuable question a searcher would have. There are many questions that are mechanical or too short in some cases or mixed, so you still need to copy them and look at the competition.
At the bottom you will see the Google’esque very straight forward search bar, without paying for a Pro Account you will only have 3 searches a day and you can’t change the search area. In most cases, this will work out fine for attempts to find valid search criteria.
When you perform a search you will get a minute or so while the search is complete and you will get a return of the questions. These are initially on a circular “visualization” layout, I prefer to switch it to the list display instead. If you want you also have an option to export to a CSV that you could then look through at your leisure.
While interesting and unique the visualization mode I find to be ineffective to search through and find what I am looking for. It is definitely a different take on showing a “visualization” of a search return.
This takes the data in the visualization mode and breaks them into each type of data and type of question. These are then further broken down into questions, prepositions, comparisons, alphabetical, and related. Each of these breakdowns can give you some amazing insights into further search terms or into articles you should write immediately.
Along the top, you will see the return amount by category along with the button to download the CSV. Since you only have 3 searches don’t get search happy and really read what you were given to find your jewels in the rough that you can expand on and build a few posts from.
While there are many tools like Ubersuggest, SEMrush, and AHREFS you can use tools like Answer the Public to organize some thoughts and see what additional questions exist out there that you haven’t thought to ask, hopefully this will help you get some more search analysis done and get you posting and building content.
