Pheeds Content Silo - The Ugly but Extremely Useful Page for Writing Content

Content Silo - The Ugly and Exremely Useful Page for Writing Content
https://pheeds.com/misc/ContentSilo.html

You can also access it directly from the top navigation menu on each forum page:
| Content Silo |

Problem: Writing content often means switching from one program window with your notes and research to another window to create your original content.

Solution: Content Silo is a simple web page with 3 boxes so you can paste in notes, research and type in the work area and see all three at the same time.

Suggested use:

Left/Yellow Box
Notes, headlines, keywords, etc.

Center/Gray Box
Research, PLR, stats, etc.

Right/Blue Box
Your original work and has character and word count.

You can resize each box by clicking and dragging the bottom right corner of each.

Also on Content Silo are a potent assortment of resources for creating content. You can mouse-over each link on Content Silo to get a short description.

There's some handy links at the top for easy access to:

Pheeds Swipes - Over 900 suggestions great for headlines, article topics, sub headers, email subject lines and more.

Linez Tuel - Extreme Text manipulation tool For Tuelz and KnQ members.

Resoomer - Tool that takes a bunch of text and reduces it to the number of sentences you select. Be sure to also click on the "Optimized" and "Anylize" buttons too.

Hemmingway - Grammar and writing checker

Otter AI - Converts audio and video (with audio) files to text

OneLook Thesaurus - The best thesarus I've found. Click on the Filters link and then enter something in the "Also related to" button. Instead of listing synonems this will list related things which is very useful for SEO. Type in something like "red fruit" for an example.

Textalyser - Keyword density checker. Helps get the "theme" of content and not just numbers.

Wolfram - An excellent research search engine especially when wanting "just the facts".

Wikipedia - You know what it is.

Google Scholar - Searches high quality research papers that are cited by respected resources.

AllTop -  AllTop aggregates all of the top news and information in real time. Find a topic and learn what's happening from trusted sources.

ShareIt - Content Curation Influencer Discovery Tool. A good collection of high quality content in a number of popular niches.

Buzzsumo  - Find popular and trending topics and content.

Quora - Content research and ideas.

Reddit - Content research and ideas.

ListVerse - A variety of Top Ten lists. Great for brain storming and content.

UberSuggest - Generates big lists of keywords.

AnswerThePublic - Finds questions real people are asking on the Net based on the keywords you enter.

LSIGraph - A good keyword tool with some handy features.

DuckDuckGo  -  Search engine with a focus on privacy and doesn't track you or advertise to you.

Often it's best to just browse instead of entering a specific keyword to brainstorm ideas:
  • AmazonNodes - Amazon's product categories listed in directory form.
  • AmazonMagazines - A goldmine of content and product ideas.
  • AmazonBestSellers - What's actually selling in your niches?
  • eBayCategories - A directory of eBay product categories.

Textalyzer Trick:

Do a google for your keywords.

Visit each of the top 10 pages listed and copy/paste each them into Content Silo to create one big chunk of text. Just do a "select all" on each page and copy/paste it.

Copy all the text and paste into Textalyzer and mess around with the functions.

Find the most commonly used words and phrases, especially those that don't contain your main keywords.

Paste the most commonly used phrases into the left box in Content Silos and use these topics as the basis for content. Try mixing in some trending keywords/topics you found at BuzzSumo or Google Trends to give your content a potential "freshness boost".

I added these resources for building content:

WikiQuotes - Quotes are useful for increasing authority, interest and breaking up long blocks of text.

SlideShare - Embedding SlideShare presentations is a fast and interesting way to embed interactive media in your content"

YouTube - YouTube videos add useful element to your content.

Pinterest - Use Pinterest for research and ideas, plus you can embed Pins in your own content.

EzineArticles - Still an excellent resource for research.

HubPages - Another site that seems dated but still offers a lot of quality content for research and ideas.

Facts - Facts and statistics are great for creating content. A simple stat can give you 2-3 paragraphs of solid content talking about the stat, as well as back up your opinions and strengthen selling points. This links to a page with 14 resources for facts and stats.

I'm sure you're aware you can embed Youtube videos, but in case you don't know you can also embed Pins from Pinterest and SlideShare presentations.

Here's a few "ingredients" you can add to your content:

YT video
A quote
A fact
A Slideshare presentation
A pin

These add interest for your viewers but they also give you something to talk about. What's in a video, presentation or pin? What did it miss and do well? How can you use a stat to convince, inform and entertain?

Mix a couple these with a little original content from your research from multiple sources and you have the foundation of a pretty good article/post.

A small typo:
Tell us what's missing from the Silo and disover and discuss Content Silo tips and strategies here.

I love this tool and use it almost daily as it is very versatile and has tons of resources "all on one page."

Fixed it and also fixed the typo Exremely I had in the title of this thread.

Note: Add link to Grammar Police to Silo. Wink

Added a link to Idioms. I use Idioms a lot especially when creating promo videos and letters. They help express ideas visually. The problem with them is other cutlures may not get the references.

This site also has some other good reference tools like specialty dictionaries and a couple of excyclopedias.
https://idioms.thefreedictionary.com/ (It's "Idioms" in the links on Content silo)

I added a link to SayIt:
https://anvaka.github.io/sayit/?query=

SayIt is a really cool "map maker" the connects subreddits based on contributors they have in common. It's a good way to find related topics for niches.

After you enter a subreddit name you can click on the other subs shown and the posts will open in the right panel. They you can sort by things like Hot, New, Rising, etc.

Hi Kurt,
https://pheeds.com/misc/ContentSilo.html
This is missing from the present page? Above the 3 columns.
The left column is for notes, including swipe files.The center column is for research or PLR. Just paste in content here.The right column is your writing space. It also has a character/word count function.

Yeah...I removed those notes because I've added links and wanted the screen space above the fold. I could add it below...did you forget? Wink

Yes sir, I forgot. What are columns 1 and 2 for? See what I mean?
Personally, one additional line above the fold that clarifys what the columns are for goes a long way for people that have never seen it before.

I have the directions in my OP on this thread. I figured adding the text/html design tool pretty much shows what the work area is and the other two columns can be resized and really used for anything.

I compromised and added these directions just below the columns: Wink
Quote:You can resize each work area above by clicking and dragging the lower right corner of each.

Use the left two columns for notes, keywords, ideas, research etc.

Use the column on the right with the text/html tools as your work area to quickly rewrite your content.

Added Text Mechanic (TxtMech) to Content Silo:
https://textmechanic.com

Text Mechanic has a variety of text manipulation tools. It's similar to my Linez Tuel but not as powerful IMHO. For one, Linez does everything on one page. Wink

Also added Text Fixer (TXT Fixer)
https://www.textfixer.com/

It has a lot of cool text features including: Title Capitalization Tool, Word Counter, Convert URLs to HTML Links, Convert CSV Text to HTML Table, Capitalize the First letter of Sentences, Word Counter, Convert URLs to HTML Links and more...
