Where to find gold buzz.

In order to find buzz that is valuable online, you need to know where to look first. But looking for buzz can be the hardest part of staying on top of the latest internet news. Luckily for you, here are some of the absolute best resources of internet buzz for you to bookmark and use in your search for gold news and information.

Quickly browse around each website first - if you haven't already - and get a feel for where to spot the hottest buzz. And don't rely on simply one of the resources here to find quality buzz; instead, use two or three (or all) of the resources to find the biggest, and best buzz on the internet.

Upcoming blog posts on Technorati provides some interesting blog topics that are rising up in the rankings on Technorati - a major blog search engine. The topics you find popular here are typically small topics, little nuggets of gold, that you can use to easily, and quickly expand upon, it's a great place to start when looking for gold buzz..

The latest tech buzz from BuzzFeed is a great place to find some specific buzz from around the internet on the topic of technology. BuzzFeed is clean of spam and clutter, which makes it a great resource to find interesting buzz instantly and painlessly.

Popular URLs to the latest buzz at Popurls is fairly self explanatory. Popurls provides some of the most popular links from all around the internet. You are guaranteed to not only find interesting buzz at Popurls, but you can also, almost always, find the biggest buzz from all over the internet.

Top news of the day by Tailrank is just that: some of the top news for the day on blogs around the internet. Not only does Tailrank provide useful, valuable buzz, but they also link to thousands of blogs who are writing about the topic as well - so you can determine what has already been covered, what hasn't, and how popular a specific topic is on any set day.

Google Trends is most useful for search engine optimizers and marketers, but can also be a great resource for everyone else as well. Using statistics directly from their search engine, Google shows some of the hottest trends - or search terms - for the day.

Digging through the dirt.

Now that you have some of the best resources for online buzz you can begin to dig through the dirt and useless buzz to find the real gold news and information.

The easiest way to do this is to first take a look at how heavily a topic is being covered. If you read about something on BuzzFeed and then see it again on Tailrank and Popurls, you'll know that the topic is extremely popular.

While buzz and information that is already extremely popular is tough to transform into gold, it's definitely possible. Just browse through the coverage of the buzz and keep track of what is being said. The last thing you want to do with internet buzz is repeat what has already been said. Instead, find a unique approach to the topic, or try to find a piece of the buzz that has yet to be covered elsewhere.

The buzz is already popular, so unless you can create a unique approach, or unless you can add some useful insight into the topic, chances are the popular buzz won't turn into gold for you.

Yet, the popular buzz isn't all you can find using internet buzz resources.

You can find out about upcoming topics - buzz that has yet to be completely popular - and be one of the first to write or market that topic.

Simply monitor topics that flow across the resource sites listed above over a few days, after a while you'll begin to see trends. Maybe internet marketing is being featured on each of the websites, start focusing on internet marketing. Or perhaps a certain celebrity is being mentioned over and over again, jump on the train and focus on that celebrity to create a strong buzz yourself.

Don't give up.

The biggest thing you need to remember when monitoring and tracking internet buzz is this: it changes almost everyday. You have the resources now to easily manage the best buzz online, all you need to do now is take the time to sort through it everyday and track it however you can, and you'll be well on your way to writing the next big blog post, or solving a business problem, or marketing the next big thing.
