I have read (and actually made money from) several reports last year about how to use google trends to make some good money. I think S. Wags had a WSO I picked up about it.
I was thinking about this today and it suddenly struck me. Why not integrate what is hot on Google Trends with Twitter!!
Now here me out while I try to get what I am thinking down here.
First thing is to find out what is popular on Google Trends.
I would suggest setting up a self hosted WP blog. The reason for that is because of plugins you can use that will help the article go viral.
Now you can find out what is hot right now and make a post about it. If it is something controversial than go to youtube and grab a video related to the subject. People go crazy for video.
Now you have a controversial post about a subject that is hot right now. It it is hot in google then I would be willing to be that it is hot on Twitter.
I also suggest using this plug in: Tweet This, a WordPress Plugin for Twitter
It adds a really cool Tweet This button to the bottom of each post.
Now slap some adsense up on the page and you should be set.
Now the more twitter followers you have the better but it shouldn't take much to get the ball rolling. Since you have the retweet button on your posts then as long as a few people click on your link and retweet the post than it stands a good chance to go viral.
Now check in on Google trends several times a day and see what is hot. Then go make a post about it.
I am sure there is much more that can be added to this topic but that is what I have off the top of my head.
A few posts a week that go crazy viral on Twitter should equal a good size chunk of change even using adsense.
If you want to step it up a notch then add some CPA banners on the post.
Just thinking out loud here..............
