Having a domain thats 10+ years old.
I have just tried Google Wonderwheel for Bill Clinton, it does not have a direct connection from "Bill Clinton" to "Monica Levinsky"...
PS: I would be very careful to avoid overusing terms suggested by the Wonder Wheel or related searches.
I know of one website that decided it would be clever to optimize a page for every phrase that shows up in "Related Searches" around a keyword where they already were ranking top five.
However, I would think that smashing a large number of co-occurring phrases into one page could also trigger a penalty. The change would be a clear attempt at manipulating Google.
One of the keys here, possibly THE key, was that the site had pages indexed that already covered that material. What my down-and-dirty co-occurrence study really did was spotlight something for me - the fact that I wasn't letting visitors know about those related areas.
