Cashing In On Google Trends

For those of you who aren't aware of this, Google Trends is one of the most popular sites online, especially for Internet marketers. If used correctly, it can bring you a quick income on a daily basis with very little work involved. This article is going to briefly go over what Google Trends is and a simple process for monetizing it with little or even no expense.

Google Trends is a site that list the top 100 most searched terms for a specific time period, usually updated every hour, though I have seen it go several hours before being updated. When news about a celebrity death breaks out, these phrases usually jump to the top of the chart quickly. Some, like in the case of Michael Jackson, stay there for a long time. The trend is usually designated as volcanic, on fire, medium or mild. But how do we actually take advantage of these trends?

You will find that the key to taking advantage of these trends is finding one that has a product tied to it. For example, whenever a new Xbox game is released. You can easily sell the game itself or even an Xbox system. Most of these physical items can be sold through the Amazon affiliate program. Some trends tie to items that have some pretty hefty price tags.

You can also monetize these trends by using Adsense. If you can find a trend that is interesting enough that people will want to read about it, even if there is no product to sell, related Adsense ads places strategically on your site can bring enough clicks in a day to actually earn the Adsense minimum for payout in just a few hours depending on how hot the trend really is.

Probably the best way to take advantage of these trends is to put up a related blog, making sure that the keywords are included and then bookmarking that blog at sites like Digg. This will bring a good number of visitors especially if there are not a lot of competing sites for that trend. Some trends have under 1,000 sites competing for that phrase.

It's a great way to make a quick buck and, if you use Blogger blogs, won't cost you a cent.

That's one money making system that's hard to beat. Give it a try sometime. You might be surprised at the results.

To YOUR Success!
