Google Trends, as many of you will know, is a simple tool for gauging, hour by hour, what is hotly being searched for on the internet. It’s an incredibly versatile and innovative tool, and possesses proved extremely handy for news agencies, Internet surfers, and Website owners alike. It tends to pay attention to news blogs, which is excellent for the smaller Webmaster who is trying to increase traffic to his blog.
I assume you could class me as one of those smaller Website owners, and to be sure, Which i keep one eye fixed on Google trends. I have learned from studying thisBlack Cube inexplicably excellent service that most Internet surfers are merely interested in the three things:
- Crime and serial killers
- Celebrities, celebrities, and more celebrities
I am sure that we am not the only Webmaster to have picked up the surprising preoccupation with celebrity culture which grips the average Internet user. The traffic flows in Google alone for this niche topic are beyond belief, with many millions perhaps searching for one hot celebrity name every hour, traffic which far outstrips relatively more significant and important topics in the news. In short, the mass selling point of celebrity and celebrity news scandals is quite breathtaking and regularly shows itself on a massive scale.
There’s been a current trend for Website owners and blog writers to follow Google trends with their blogs, and I need to admit that we am among these Website owners. Let me give you an example of how effective it can be. At 1: 00 PM HOURS, it was announced on Google trends that Rachel Ray, the popular TV cook, had done a risque photo shoot for FHM. I was lucky to discover more regarding this at 1: 05 PM HOURS. I wrote a quick five-minute writing about this topic, not thinking it would come to much. Boy was I wrong. I checked back on my websites stat counter later that day and found that 60, 000 unique visitors had been delivered to my blog by Google.
How is such a massive jump in traffic possible, without plenty of effort regarding seo? It just looks as if it’s a simple question of competition. When the latest celebrity scandal breaks and is reported on trends, for the next little bit, there is extremely scant competition on Google for the fairly unique set of keywords which represent said scandal. It’s a formula which continuously works for me and other Website owners, some of whom even admit on their blog that they are just following Google trends. Of course to limit yourself to Google trends on a blog would be a hard to follow move that we would not recommend.
Google trends has allowed me to write about interesting celebrity news stories, knowing that they will not be immediately overlooked and forgotten. There is now an opportunity for any Webmaster to get significant traffic, fast and free, from this innovative and clever Google tool.
