You can view both evergreen and trending ideas in the Content Ideas Generator, meaning you can analyze data from a single week, all the way up to five years!
When you first land in the Content Ideas Generator, you'll be shown the "Trending Now" view, which will give you content ideas that have been popular over the last week.
To change this, simply hit the date range dropdown, and select a longer timeframe.
Evergreen date range
Your evergreen timeframe will depend on the plan you are on. For example, if you are currently using a free trial you will get data for a year, whereas if you are on an a Suite or Enterprise plan, you will be able to see up to five years’ worth of data.
Free trial → 1 year of evergreen data
Basic plan → 2 years of evergreen data
Content Creation plan → 3 years of evergreen dat
PR & Comms plan → 3 years of evergreen data
Suite plan → 5 years of evergreen data
Enterprise plan → 5 years of evergreen data
Trending date range
The Content Ideas Generator helps you find recently trending content, with the trending score.
Usually our score measures the speed of social shares within a 24 hour period, but in the Content Ideas Generator, you can see what’s been trending over an entire week.
The only two sections that will not present data for the week in the Content Ideas Generator, are:
Popular keywords this month
Explore top ranking content for "SEO" in Google
This is because search data is only ever collected on a monthly basis.
