Updated over a week ago

ContextMinds is a versatile platform that offers a range of options such as creating maps, conducting keyword analysis, structuring websites, and generating unique content based on your map.

Your first map

  • Upon registration, name your map and kickstart your content creation journey.

Clik NEW MAP button, fill in any name and pres ENTER (or CREATE).

  • The initial concept is automatically generated with the same name as the map, which you can modify as needed.

  • Add concepts manually or let AI suggest related concepts for you to explore further topics and connections.

While concepts added through the plus buttons next to the concept and through the input line are inserted as text boxes independently, concepts dragged from search results are automatically linked to the offered concepts and affect further suggested content. You can change this setting at any time during your work using the "suggestion" toggle button below the input line.

To begin with, it's good to start with a broader topic and gradually divide it into smaller units and more detailed topics.

From broad topics to smaller segments

  • Begin with broader topics and gradually break them down into smaller units and more detailed topics.

  • Interconnect concepts, establish relationships, and create a structure by grouping concepts and subconcepts.

If you have already inserted several concepts in the map, you can interconnect them and determine their relationships. At the same time, you can create a structure of concepts and subconcepts by dragging individual "bubbles" under one main bubble.

Filtering options and metrics

  • Utilize filtering options for data sources and consider keyword metrics, especially when working with keywords.

Use filtering options for data sources when searching. For each concept category, you can filter and sort according to appropriate parameters.

Consider the listed keyword metrics. These are particularly important when working with keywords and analyzing them - you can choose two sources of metrics - Keywords Everywhere and SpyFu.

Taking notes and attaching files

  • Use notes to save interesting content or attachments for specific concepts.

If you come across something intriguing but don't want to add it to the map right away, or if you want to save a document or image attachment related to a specific concept, utilize the Pinned notes / Concept notes tab. This is where you can access all your pinned notes.

ChatGPT Integration

  • Access AI-generated content related to your map under the Chat tab.

Integrated ChatGPT allows generating articles or customized content. Engage in conversation, ask questions, or delegate tasks directly and get a real time feedback.

To generate requested content, click on any concept in the map and choose one of the prepared prompts or create your own.

Drag generated note and move it into the map.

Now you can see the article as a new concept in your map.


  • Share your completed map with colleagues or clients by providing a link or printing it in various formats.

Once you have finished working with the map, you can share it with colleagues or clients via a link or print it in various formats.

No login is needed; they will see a read-only view with an option to create a copy, edit and send you back โ€“ if they log in. You can also export the map as an image or a PDF file โ€“ hit the cogged wheel button and go to โ€œMap actions.โ€
