    To be honest I never even looked into this but amongst every teenager the trend right now is SWAG HIP HOP and stuff like that I really want to get into that niche somehow since I am still 19

    swag hip hop got phased out.

    Everything gets phased out, and then comes back into play. If you want to know the trends, maybe talk to your friends, family, random cashier at the store... listen to the way people talk, and what they reference, in general.

    Drugs, sex, and music is always trending with the 16+ groups.

    I just ran TrendMiner Pro for you, scraped the last 90 days of rising trends and drilled deep, have a nice big list of keywords/topics that have been trending the past 3 months. Ran out of time before class but I'll upload the results tonight for you so that you can go through them and see if any of the topics look like something you'd want to tackle.

    Unfortunately hameem is right, gungam style is listed several times on the list lol

    here you go:

    HTML:
    http://pastebin.com/r948TV0f
    I'd download it as a .txt file and import it to excel, google docs, openoffice, etc as a tab seperated file, so it looks cleaner.

    Also, note that the % increase in popularity (some say 5,000%, some say 40%, and everything in between) is relative to how often the phrases were searched before the 90 days. So highest percentage gains dont necessarily equal the most searched keywords, just the biggest increase. So if "gungam style" only had 100 searches before, then started getting 500,000+ searches a month (i know it's more than that), it would be in the 5,000% gains group. But if a keyword had 1,000,000 searches a month, and doubled to 2,000,000 searches a month, it would only be a 200% gain.

    Hope that makes sense. If not just ignore the % and run the keywords through some KW tools to see some stats. Should be a decent starting place. Ignore the phrases with gibberish letters, it just means the search phrase didn't use english characters.

    Hope it helps!

    Motor Club of America is trending hardcore right now as a money-making opportunity, but it's always going to be a viable product to sell as a motor club to USA/Canada motorists.

    I have a team that gets personal guidance and training from yours truly if anyone wants to join. Commission is $80/sale.

    Live Drive is going to be the new trend, the word is spreading faster than ever with $200 commission per sale on $8 signups, but there are steps you may have to follow through, to avoid unnecessary mistakes upon signing up. Yes, there are tricks involved or you will regret it. INBOX me if interested since I can't post URLs as a newbie =)

    I love it, great tool in my opinion. Some might not think so as its pretty simple but gives nice starting points to plug into other software

    Why wouldn't they just google it if interested?

    http://www.livedrive.com/affiliates

    Easy enough to find. Dunno how good it is, kind of interesting

    I doubt there's many mistakes you can make signing up, sounds like you just want to get people to sign up underneath you lol

    Actually you can mess up, lol, and there's a possible chance that you won't get paid commissions too even if you think you've done it correctly. But yes, feel free to sign up, I won't stop you.

    Weird, didn't seem to be very tricky to register, guess time will tell if I get paid. But when the only fields are "name," "address," and email/password, it is hard to imagine screwing it up lol. Just my .02

    Enjoy it, it's pretty cool :) I like to run the results thru several other tools, see what comes out, mash up all the data and find some solid niches.
