Google Trends, as numerous of you’ll know, is a simple tool for gauging, hour by hour, what’s hotly being searched for on the Internet. It’s an incredibly versatile and innovative tool, and it has proved extremely handy for news agencies, Internet users, and Webmasters alike. It tends to target on news blogs, which can be excellent for the smaller Webmaster who is trying to increase traffic to his blog.
Perhaps you could class me as some of those smaller Webmasters, and to be sure, I keep one eye fixed on Google trends. I discovered from studying this mysteriously excellent service that most Internet users are only interested in the three things:
2. Crime and serial killers
3. Celebrities, celebrities, and more celebrities
I am sure that I am not the only Webmaster to possess acquired the surprising obsession with celebrity culture which grips the average Internet user. Uganda 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 seemingly more weighty and important topics in the news. Simply speaking, the mass appeal of celebrity and celebrity news scandals is fairly breathtaking and regularly shows itself on a huge scale.
There has been a recent trend for Webmasters and blog writers to check out Google trends making use of their blog posts, and I must admit that I am among these Webmasters. I’d like to offer you a good example of how effective it can be. At 1:00 PM, it absolutely was announced on Google trends that Rachel Ray, the popular TV cook, had done a risque photo shoot for FHM. I was fortunate to find out about any of it at 1:05 PM. I wrote a quick five-minute article about any of it topic, not thinking it would arrived at much. Boy was I wrong. I checked back on my websites stat counter later that day and found that 60,000 unique visitors have been provided for my blog by Google.
How is this kind of massive jump in traffic possible, without a huge amount of effort in regard to search engine optimisation? It just looks like it’s a simple question of competition. When the most recent celebrity scandal breaks and is reported on trends, for the next few minutes, there’s extremely scant competition on Google for the comparatively unique pair of keywords which represent said scandal. It is a formula which continuously works for me personally and other Webmasters, some of whom even admit on the blog that they’re just following Google trends. Of course to limit oneself to Google trends on a weblog will be a restrictive move that I would not recommend.
Google trends has allowed me to create about interesting celebrity news stories, knowing that they won’t be immediately overlooked and forgotten. There is now a chance for any Webmaster to get significant traffic, fast and free, using this innovative and ingenious Google tool.
