    Im fairly new to SEO with the intention of hopefully working from home over the next few years.....anyway;

    Todays UK news has been saturated with a story of someone called Derrick Bird who is going around cumbria shooting people. (11 so far).

    Anyway, I thought....there must be loads of people googling this guy. So...I added "derrick bird" as a keyword to an adwords compaign. Within 30 minutes I had around 1500 impressions.

    Totally useless for my website, and I doubt I'll get any clicks let alone conversions.....but just wondered if anyone uses this kind of situation to make money, and how?

    Just to add...this is a terrible news story for all involved, and my heart goes out to the families. Im not looking to make money from it, Im just using it as an example of a red hot google search term which is totally off the radar and came out of the blue.

    I'm always checking out G's hot trends, topics, insights etc for hot topics, but a lot of them are searches like this, where i can't think of a way to monetize it, and the traffic will disappear in the matter of a month anyway.
