Here are some examples of current events (they are already considered history since they already happened). If you blog about these events, I’m sure you will gain traffic although temporarily.
Remember the blogger meetups that was held a months a go? There was Taste Asia 1, Digital Filipino’s Influential blogger contest, Taste Asia 2 and the Ms. Fields event. Not only will you meet the faces behind the blogs, you will also meet new bloggers and gain potential regular readers and lots of backlinks (provided you wrote the blog entry to the event one day after and linked it to the main blog of the event).
Cris Mendez’s death because of hazing
If you wish to blog about him to share your thoughts on this issue, I’m sure you will be receiving responses from people who sympathize with him and his family. However, please do not blog about this person if your only reason for doing so is to gain traffic. -_-
Movie reviews that critics a movie with a huge fan base
I just learned that this was a good idea when I read from Ms. Doplon’s blog about her review on the movie “I’ve Fallen for you” starring Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson. The review criticized the movie and a hoard of Kimerald fans started reacting negatively to her post even asking for the deletion of the post and personal insults against the author herself.
UAAP Basketball especially on ADMU-DLSU
Need I say more on this? This was the topic I picked for my experiment and I got a few traffic increases a few days after I posted about UAAP.
Pacquiao and Barrera Boxing Match
If you are in the Philippines, you would have noticed a sudden decrease of vehicles running along the country on the day of the match. That’s proof enough on how Filipino’s would drop everything just to watch this match. This has a very high traffic upsurge especially if you can post the results earlier than the rest.
Desperate Housewives talks about Philippine Med schools
This caused quite a big stir lately due to what a character said about the medical diplomas in the Philippines. You can choose your side, pro or anti and whatever side you choose, you will gain traffic and clashes of ideas. It’s a big discussion nowadays.
I’m out of ideas!!!
I have a head ache right now and I need to rest for a while… if you have more events which you think can be used for gaining traffic, please suggest. Thanks.
