So, let’s get down to business! Below, we’ll take you on a tour of Taboola Trends, highlighting its features and showing you exactly how to leverage its power for maximum impact.

Headline Trends: Connect Your Brand to the Hottest Trends

Want to craft headlines that tap into the zeitgeist and resonate with your audience? Look no further than Headline Trends.

This feature taps into ChatGPT’s analytical prowess to analyze real-time data and surface the most buzz-worthy headline trends.

You can filter your search by Country, Language, Industry, and Marketing Goal. This laser-focused approach ensures you uncover trends directly aligned with your campaign objectives.

Seeing is believing, so let’s look at an example. Imagine you’re working on a campaign for a fashion brand targeting US consumers, and your goal is to drive online purchases. Set those filters, and you’ll see three insightful slides, each focused on a different trending headline theme, but of course, we don’t leave you there.

Each theme includes an example title to spark inspiration, a valuable tip about key points to highlight, and the most relevant trending keywords, adjectives, and action verbs – the building blocks of high-performing headlines.

Headline Analyzer: Choose Headlines with Confidence

Headlines are the gateway to our audience’s hearts (and wallets), but how do you select the perfect one?

The Headline Analyzer takes the guesswork out of the process. It analyzes past performance data from Taboola’s massive network, considering factors like keyword relevance and emotional triggers, and predicts which will generate the highest CTR. Just add 3-5 potential headlines and let the AI-powered tool do its job.

Now that you’ve created a list of titles that incorporate insights from Headline Trends, you enter your top five. In seconds, the Headline Analyzer shows you how well each will perform.

You can now confidently kick off a campaign with the top-ranked title, knowing it’s the most likely to grab attention and drive clicks or run an A/B test with the second-place title.

Image Trends: Your Visual Strategist

In our visually-soaked world, the right image can be the difference between a scroll-past and a conversion.

Image Trends is an AI-powered feature that dives deep into the Taboola data pool, revealing the current image components that contribute to success and those that might hinder it.

Here, you can set all the same filters you used earlier, plus select the Device you are targeting: choose from All, Desktop, Mobile, or Tablet. After clicking Analyze, your results appear. Scroll through the different image trends and discover which image details will boost CTR or CVR.

Your intuition and experience tell you that including a person in the image will improve your CVR. You confirm that with the data in Image Trends. But what other image details should you consider?

You might assume that including food in the image would be a distraction (after all, it’s a fashion campaign), but Image Trends actually reveals that currently, a picture with food increases CVR by 16.7%.

The lesson: Don’t let assumptions lead to costly mistakes; always make the most of your campaigns by relying on real-time data.

Trending Topics: Ride the Wave of Reader Interests

What’s piquing your audience’s curiosity this week? Finding the answer is a breeze with Trending Topics – a window into the subjects captivating readers across the open web.

This intuitive feature presents trending topics as bubbles; the larger the bubble, the more pageviews it’s generating, giving you a clear picture of reader engagement.

Each bubble is color-coded to denote its category, and helpful gray lines connect related topics for easy exploration. Need more info about a specific topic? Click any keyword to see relevant Google News results.

Use this real-world, real-time data to find clever ways to connect your brand to the stories holding readers’ attention. Hone in on specific trends by selecting a Country and any of the 20+ Categories, including family, sports, fashion, technology, travel, and more.
