8 Blog Topic Ideas for Bookkeeping Companies to Help Rank in Search Engines


#1 Write bookkeeping & accounting blog posts to other audiences like peers, students and more

It might be hard to rank a blog for a broad topic to a potential business owner, so our goal is to target long tail keywords & niche keywords.

"blog post ideas" is much harder than "Blog post ideas for bookkeeping businesses".

See what I did there? 

Remember that there are a couple different types of audiences you can target with your blog that will be easier to target than the overarching broad topics of tax, accounting and bookkeeping.

We need the sub niche because otherwise we'll be competing with Intuit, ADP and other mega corporations.

Audience Ideas for your bookkeeping business blogs:

  • Business owners
  • New business startups
  • People in accounting school
  • Accountants looking for training & insight
  • People dreaming of starting a business
  • Other bookkeeping businesses
  • Accountants in general
  • People needing help with accounting questions
  • People using accounting programs and software

Obviously our top hope is that your blog post will get in front of qualified buyers, but we also consider it a win if google sees that you handle all accounting traffic well.

Your overall site will rank higher, and your google my business will dominate locally, if you handle all accounting traffic well.

Google seems to stereotype you, and it’s just important to stay on the bookkeeping, business, accounting and tax topics, whether that’s to a potential client or some other curious reader.

This works so well that Feedbackwrench’s websites for accountants website has begun to rank in the accounting serps here locally.

It’s often easier to rank for the smaller niche of accountants looking for answers, than it is for the broad accounting topics, so remember you can write for your peers.

Tips and Advice for Other Bookkeeping Businesses & People Starting a Bookkeeping, Accounting, Tax or CPA Business

When you first start blogging, It’s hard to rank for broad bookkeeping tips for business owners.

It’s much easier to rank content that helps other bookkeepers.

It’s also a topic you could easily speak on, as you’re learning many lessons as you build your own bookkeeping business.

Choose blogs that provide tips to other people trying to start their own bookkeeping business.

Blogging ideas that other bookkeeping businesses might read:

#2 Blogs for Startups in a Niche

The second type of blog post is to write guides for people starting businesses in other niches.

The niche could be an industry or it could be a region.

Writing to a niche means that your content has a much higher chance of ranking.

I’m telling you, if you write content and then make a video in your it be covering the exact same information, you’ll get people calling you.

#3 Write Blogs Explaining Bookkeeping, Tax & Accounting Software

The more specific a question, the more targeted the audience is and the higher the likelihood you’ll rank.

One great way to get articles ranking for accounting, tax and bookkeeping things is to teach and solve questions concerning specific pieces of software.

Write articles very specific to the problem and the software.

Blog Topics About Bookkeeping Software:
