    After seeing several goog trends posts here, I tried doing something with g trends.

    I set up a current events themed blog on a subdomain with the word news in the url.

    I pulled an RSS feed from goog trends and set it to update every six hours.

    For the first few weeks, I would pick a keyword from google trends and drop it in sitejunk (dot com), then use the resulting mess as a blog post. Try to use a word that people will still be searching for months later- in other words, don't use a person's name. That's the tough part, as g trends tends to be about people.

    I did this a few times a week for the first month or so, then I let it do it's own thing.

    Before I shut it down, the site generated about 100 hits a day with the occasional click. Yes, people actually clicked the ads on occasion. The only promotion I did was I dugg one article when the site was new, to help it get indexed faster.

    The problem is finding advertisers who will accept a crap blog like this (I've been banned from adsense).

    Hello,

    how you pull a RSS Google trends feed?

    G. Trends RSS feed only gives the keywords.

    What i just did (see sig)...i am parsing the keywords, and i am returning RSS feeds matching the Trends Keywords. (I can pull youtube, Google News or Yahoo News). Then i use this on WP in conjunction with Feedwordpress.

    Maybe i find some cool full-text RSS feeds also to use with my tool. But its working great already.

    That's right, blackhaze, it just pulls the keywords, yet I still had 100 visits a day.

    Edit:

    just visited your sales page, it looks like a nice tool.

    Thanks!

    i am still working on getting rid of foodprints, maybe even scraping the content and make it part of the blog itself in a way like CC plugin does.

    Or find some cool "full text rss" feed to pull from.
