Google Trends, as much of you’ll know, is a simple tool for gauging, hour by hour, what is hotly being sought out on the Internet. It’s an incredibly versatile and innovative tool, and it’s proved extremely handy for news agencies, Internet users, and Webmasters alike. It tends to concentrate on news blogs, which will be excellent for the smaller Webmaster who is wanting to boost traffic to his blog.
I guess you can class me as some of those smaller Webmasters, and to be certain, I continue to keep one eye fixed on Google trends. I have discovered from studying this mysteriously excellent service that most Internet users are just thinking about 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 own acquired the surprising obsession with celebrity culture which grips the average Internet user. The traffic flows in Google alone because of 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. Uganda news today In short, 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 follow along with Google trends making use of their blog posts, and I must admit that I am among these Webmasters. I’d like to give you a good example of how effective it can be. At 1:00 PM, it was announced on Google trends that Rachel Ray, the favorite TV cook, had done a risque photo shoot for FHM. I was fortunate enough to discover about any of it at 1:05 PM. I wrote an instant five-minute article about any of it topic, not thinking it’d come to much. Boy was I wrong. I checked back on my websites stat counter later that day and discovered that 60,000 unique visitors had been delivered to my blog by Google.
How is this type of massive jump in traffic possible, without a huge amount of effort in regard to search engine optimisation? It just looks as though it’s a simple question of competition. When the latest celebrity scandal breaks and is reported on trends, for another short while, there is 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 and other Webmasters, some of whom even admit on their blog that they are just following Google trends. Of course to limit oneself to Google trends on a blog would be a restrictive move that I wouldn’t recommend.
Google trends has allowed me to publish about interesting celebrity news stories, knowing which they won’t be immediately overlooked and forgotten. There’s now a chance for any Webmaster to have significant traffic, fast and free, out of this innovative and ingenious Google tool.
