Gaming Google Trends
October 17, 2008
1. Pick a phrase (e.g. “coupons for online savings”)
2. Set up a machine to continually search Google for it over and over again (99% – Conroe, TX)
3. Start writing blog posts on that subject
4. Google shows it as a hot trend and people search for it to work out why.
Personally I think it would be better to do what the Daily Telegraph and Mahalo do and just sit and watch Google trends and create content to match the current hot items – in that respect it’s a shame Google Trends shows what was hot as opposed to what is becoming hot.
