    ok so I had this idea the other night about how to get the top searched keywords on google for my niche listed on my blog pages even though i don't necessarily have any content for all the keywords.

    Basically i use wordpress on mostly all of my sites and i love the search-meter plugin because google sees these search links and indexes them like crazy. Best of all the links are on every page in the sidebar. So i thought to myself how can i get these top keywords on my site so that it appears they have been searched and provides a link to the fake searched content.

    So here is what i did. I went to the google.com/sktool and put in a broad keyword for my niche.. that comes back with tons of keywords in that niche. Then i exported it out and basically deleted all the columns like search volume,etc and just left the keyword. I then wrote a quick php script to one by one search the keyword on my blog. The search-meter plugin picks these searches up and of course logs them as unsuccesful searches for those keywords which match nothing on your blog. No problem there and you will see why in a second.

    So now after i have like 200 plus keywords in my niche added to my search-meter database I do a little tweak to the search meter code and make it show the last 50 searches whether they were sucessful or not. So the big dilemna is what if i dont have any content that matches that keyword. Not a problem. Once they click on that search link I can make wordpress show them anything I want whether its on my blog or not.

    For example lets take credit. I get all the credit keywords and add em to my blog. Suppose I dont have anything for GE credit cards on my blog. But now i have a link like blog.com/search/GE+credit+card and they click through from a google link. You expect them to see the default Sorry no post match your search right? Well the sweet thing about wordpress is you can make it return whatever you want even posts that might not match exactly what they were looking for. So they click through and dont necessarily see GE credit cards but they do see other offers which appeal to them. Now they are browsing your blog based on a search of a keyword that is no where to be found on your blog other than in your recent searches.

    Well, this sounds promising. Maybe you can also link to your blog from a article using this link to your blog. =====>ex. blog.com/search/GE+credit+card

    If you can make that work out then you can gain a backlink for this as well.
    Just a thought that might help you out.

    that sounds sweet... give us a share. Sounds like you have some good PHP knowledge, as for me, I'm just a hack.. usually outsource tough code.

    I have thought of something relatively similar.

    As we know, Googlebot uses a certain user-agent. We can pull that user-agent with PHP/ASP/JS, you name it. By parsing the UA string, we can determine whether the visitor is a normal person or a bot, and show them different content. So as far as googlebot knows, our site is about, say, "articles about acai berry", but for the visiting people it shows up as a CPA offer.

    I don't know if this would actually be useful. Just a thought.

    That is cloaking, and if used carefully can help somewhat. Keep in mind that if you go shooting up the SERPs there will be real live human visitors coming from Google IPs around the world with real browsers to manually verify your content. If you are caught cloaking then you will be banned, period.

    The OP's idea is pretty good, and I do a similar tactic which also involves scraping Google Hot Trends and munging the results together.
