I posted this tactic in another thread, but since it was in a 'download request' thread I think it got passed over. Using Google Trends... I use this tactic on my news/gossip blogs everyday and it gets me steady daily traffic. On top of that, at least 4-5 times a week I get a butt load of traffic. (I'm talking about getting 2,000 hits directing to 1 blog post) This is how I do it. This is what people are searching for, updated often. If you have a wordpress blog, this can really help you get the traffic you need to keep up a steady flow without doing much work. Goto the trends link and find the top ten most searched terms. Follow the popular search word/words to the source (CNN, BBC, FoxNews, Etc) Copy the article, rewrite it. (Someone posted a great idea by using a english to spanish translator here --> http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...292-100-free-unique-content-all-websites.html ) You will notice on the trends page, the popular search word(s) have similar search terms listed under it. Use these in your post if you can, and definitely use them for your tags. They are already separated by commas, so a simple copy and paste will do the trick. Now watch the traffic roll in, it takes a matter of minutes to see it happen. (Be sure to have a decent ping list in your WP) Hot searches sometimes come back within a day or two. Having published your post already, your blog will usually be in the top three searches on google. I'm not just talking about the google trends results either, regular google searches! I use my PPC & PPA campaigns and get the steady hits I need to make decent $$ everyday. I'd suggest anyone looking for an easy way to get some hits, try this tactic out and you won't be disappointed. Cheers!
