So a few days ago I decided to try seeing if there were topics on Google Trends worth writing about. For me to write an article some criteria needed to be met:
1. Is it a topic that is evergreen OR seasonal and will be relevant next year?
2. If no, is it a topic that could make decent money in a short burst of time?
I found two topics and wrote about them - I describe this in my Google Trends post.
The Honey Baked Ham article took OFF. Over 400 PV now in under 3 days. The NYS Unemployment article is puttering along in the 20s.
My revenue, though, has skyrocketed. Now, to be fair, ALL my articles are up for page views, so it's also possible that the Honey Baked Ham article has nothing to do with rev. I was going for ads about coupons and hoping people would click on those, but there are no Honey Baked Ham coupon ads on the article!
SO off to check out Google Trends for ideas...
