On Sunday, I did a different kind of news article on Planet Chiropractic. It was the result of a bunch of friends asking me questions over the weekend about search traffic, keywords, and delivering timely content. I thought it would be a good idea to answer their questions by way of an article, so I posted the news article Sunday afternoon, not really expecting to hear any feedback.
It’s funny how things sometimes happen when you are helping others and not expecting anything in return. Later Sunday afternoon I noticed the news post appearing in Google News (screenshot above) and it was amusing, because it was laid out so well, photograph and all. I didn’t plan it that way, but that’s how it worked out, resulting in even more traffic.
Here is a 7 keyword phrase summary so you can see how this worked. View the news article to see the post as I wrote it.
Candace Michelle – Two articles were receiving traffic, both related to the WWE Women’s Wrestler.
BeyoncÃ© – One article that was in the news two weeks ago, related to a fall she had taken at a concert in Florida.
X Games – Article for X Games 13 on the main page received the most traffic.
Van Halen – An article from February has been getting increased hits since July (it went red hot today on news of the 2007 Van Halen tour).
PGA Championship – Thanks to popularity in Google News, PGA and Summer Sports News was the hottest topic of the weekend.
Tour de France – There are articles spanning over six years covering the Tour de France. All received more traffic in the month of July.
Democratic Debate – Article related to YouTube videos received the most traffic for searches related to July’s televised Democratic debate.
Those are seven keywords or phrases that don’t appear to have anything in common with each other, yet they were all popular topics searched for in the past two weeks.
