    I just saw this method on ***:
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    How to get at least 2k hits per day in a matter of minutes.

    "Can't be done", i hear you say.. well, check this out!

    * create a twitter account
    * set up a wordpress (2.5.1 works best) blog on a generic domain.
    * install "wp autoblog" or "wp-o-matic".
    * install twitter poster ( WordPress ? Twitter Poster WordPress Plugins )

    Now, (do this each day, takes about 10 minutes) have a look at Twitter Search and note down the hot trends..

    Head over to Google's hot trends and note down their hot trends.

    Nnoooow, go to the google blogsearch, perform a search for those trending topics and get the RSS feed of the search results.. copy the rss feed's url and insert it into your blogs wp-autoblog feature.

    WHAT THIS WILL DO:

    * your blog will aggregate the hottest trends
    * your blog will auto twitter the aggregated headlines with a link to your blog
    * people search on the twitter realtime search, find your tweet and click through to your blog
    * you get mad traffic

    I started this as an experiment three weeks ago and i get a constant 5k unique hits per day, according to awstats.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I think I may have it working. Twitter poster no longer works so I used wordpress->twitter instead. The only thing is there is no link on the tweets back to my wordpress blog. Does anyone know if there should be or not? The only link I can see is where it says 'posted via' when u click on the actual tweet. If anyone think they can help me out I will help them set it up if they are interested in return.
    Thanks a lot.

    If you've no links in the tweets, how is the traffic finding you?? Most people don't look to see what app you used to tweet they just read the content.

    Does the traffic convert? I find an awful lot of traffic from twitter is bots, unless you build a niche following which you may not do using this method because of the chagine trends.

    I got it working. I just needed to set it to use the link shortner I entered the API key for. I know it might not be good quality traffic, I just wanted to try it out and experiment a bit.
    I'm not sure how it could be monetized because it just posts stuff thats trending automatically on your blog.

    All the plugins are doing what they are supposed to do. But I am not sure if it would be worth monetizing or how yet.

    The plugins work but I don't know if it will get you traffic or how you can monetize it. I might do more testing on a separate blog.

    I am about to try this on a generic domain I just got. Does anyone think I could get banned from adsense from doing this?
