Using SEO and Google Trends got me over 12,000 visitors in 24 hours

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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.

You're probably experiencing QDF (Query Deserves Freshness)

Usually this will not last unless your site is authoritative enough to stay in top positions after other sites jump in to write about the same topic.

Nonetheless, well done!

Curious as to how many successes and failures have you've had since you originally posted?
