    just thought of this

    rank #1 for a weird keyword. a keyword that nobody would ever search for.
    for example
    walmart ice cream aids patients

    this should be easy.

    then go to forums and say "hey guys, i just heard walmart is giving free ice creams to aids patients, is this true?"

    then people will go to google to check, and boom, your site is number 1.

    is this brilliant or stupid?

    No idea is stupid, just implement it and test it is your best bet. There are limitless possibilities to driving traffic.

    It's stupid as hell. I'm a little drunk, but from what I see you're trying to rank for a shit keyword with no search volume or marketability. The whole point of ranking in the SERPS is to have people searching for your relevant keyword.

    well this is another dimension to seo - you create demand for a keyword that has no demand.

    You will create demand for the keyword, but it will be short lived, much like facebook/twitter traffic. The interest will fade quickly with your approach.

    It's actually a perfectly good plan. Many forums don't like your arbitrary links popping up all over the place, so what better way to get conversions. Just because you're number one doesn't mean anything though if it's not searched for, but a good way to stay under the radar.

    Make a squeeze page and fuel the crap out of that thread (on a very large forum of course). Use whatever you can to keep it going- kerosene, insults, oil, wood, babies

    You might actually get some traffic this way but they would all be looking for walmart ice cream aids patients and be not even slightly interested in what your trying to sell..... unless its walmart ice cream.
