I was hit with a flood of traffic to a brand new article I had just written on my blog.
This is what I did:
1. Visited Google Trends and found a hot topic of the day.
2. Did some research and wrote an article about the topic.
3. Posted the article on my blog.
4. Added a link to my article to a few social bookmarking sites.
The traffic started flooding in within minutes from the social bookmark sites. After about 30 minutes I was getting 90% of my traffic from Google searches. When the visitors came to my site they would also browse the other articles aswell.
