SEO Inspiration for 2011 from 2010

I’ve just had a thought (a dangerous thing i know) but is there any inspiration to be taken from searches in 2010 using the date 2010? SO i did a little bit of keyword research and heres the results – and some of it is massive traffic!

Reason stands that if you create similar content in 2011 and integrate this into your link campaign you could have a healthy boost in traffic (niche depending). For obvious reason, most of this is holiday or event related…but still its nice to know.

    Great idea! Bringing some nice creativity to SEO!

    The search volumes are a bot on the optimistic side though, are they just taken as broad match from the AdWords Keyword Tool? I think the exact matches are much lower, but still some large search volumes!

    Interesting thought, and also interesting results. The only time I ever use a year is if I’m thinking of something very specific. I’m surprised that a lot of people would include it in their search. Good to know!

      yeah if you are active in the music, travel or entertainment community dates seem to be the way to go. ive also noticed people looking for reviews in the current year for products which is pretty handy if your seoing for new products

    Hi Mark,

    I admire you for taking the time to make the research thereby saving us from going through all the trouble ourselves. And since you included Michael Buble ticket there, I think we as might well consider Justin Bieber’s for this year. lol

    Good call Mark.

    As someone who writes in the travel sector this research is really useful and i’ll certainly put it to good use in my SEO activities this year.

    Thanks for the tip!

    Tom

    I agree. This is a pretty amazing list of possibilities for this year. Wish I have read this earlier. Some items on the list are already playing around the seo world. Good to know still.

    Eric
