    Hi,

    "In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes" Andy Warhol

    Now lets take a look at the Pizza delivery man. Looks like he sure got his 15 min

    When I started my blog I had dream to put up great info on celebrities. Only one downfall I live in the midwest not in Hollywood so not much happens out my front window. What was I expecting, news to happen? Well it didn't, so the best I could do was to hunt other sites and and then tell my own story.

    Great, but sometimes I wasted a lot of time on research of stuff just finding the article I wanted to post. I had No time leftover for promoting the site building links and so on...Then I discovered Google Trends after that I got on Twitter and watched what was trending.

    Look at what is trending and write on that subject. A few times I got lucky. One time I was listed 2nd on page one of Google with in minutes of a trending tropic and for a few days the site was seeing 10,000's upon 10,000 of UV That lasted just a few days and you must start the process all over again. With good site layout people will click on other pages of your site and hopefully come back again and again.

    People having a site/blog and earning a living with that is not a part time on weekends hobby. It is a full time commitment. I wish it would be like Field of Dreams "Build it and they will come." Lots of sites out there think this way. All I need is a site. Build it and then see mass numbers of people. Let me say this, it takes work.

    Rant Over: Now back on topic.

    Following Trends - I just found a site that can help you with things that are trending and this site covers a huge amount of trending topics.

    If you are just starting. Use the Free area

    Now Trending on TrendSpottr

    or you can sign up for a free trail or a paid area when the big bucks start rolling in for you.

    Now how I got lucky is write on something that is trending upwards but hunt for your own angle on the subject. Believe me people it will work.

    "So strike while the iron is hot." and "Make hay when the sun shines." Boy I really love quotes don't I

    Wishing you all #1 on page 1 of Google.

    Cool! Thanks for the heads up!
    Anyway, I wonder how long the site is around the web?

    You may get ideas for the latest trends, but chances are you will not be knowledgeable or an existing enthusiast in that area. So if you jump on the HOT topic, you will be a scammer, shyster or whatever phrase best fits.

    Better stick to what you know 10% better than most people and post about what you love and what you are competent at IMO.

    In addition to what Andy said, hot topics do not necessarily drive traffic, especially if 10,000 other people are writing about the same topic. It is always better to try to write the most informative article on the web related to a specific niche topic.

    True what has been said.
    Stay away from hot trends.
    Because what is hot today, is colder than ice tomorrow.

    But if you happen to benefit of a trend, make sure that those who visit you will be able to follow you, like you or whatever else can get them easily alerted whenever you have a follow-up post.
