This is just a quick followup to the post I just made about “maria belen shapur photo” being the most searched keyword on Google Trends. Here is the link to the Google Trends graph so you can see the explosive volume in the past 6 hours – http://www.google.com/trends/hottrends?q=maria+belen+shapur+photo&date=2009-6-25&sa=X
I was looking at the hottest keywords on Google Trends and it looks like “Maria Belen Shapur Photo” has skyrocketed in searches today. Apparently, Maria Belen Shapur is South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford’s mistress from Argentina. I didn’t realize that so many people are dying to know what Maria Belen Shapur looks like, and from what I’ve found, there are no pictures available anywhere on the ‘Net! Which is a little strange considering she’s supposedly a professional and yet she has no presence on the web whatsoever. So either they do not have the Internet in Argentina OR this is a completely made up name to cover up the truth – that Mark Sanford did, in fact, escape to the Appalachian Trail for National Naked Hiking Day, after all.
One of my clients’ accounts in Google AdWords is reporting an incredible 92,233,720,368,547,776.00% conversion rate this morning. There were 63 impressions, 0 clicks and 1 conversion. Some people might say it’s a bug on Google’s part but I say it’s one of my all-time greatest accomplishments and a story to tell the grandkids.
I’m not sure how I stumbled upon this gem of a keyword research tool, but I just had to add it to this site to share with the world as well as so I didn’t forget it. It’s a nifty little tool which utilizes Google’s API for searching multiple keywords that appear in the TITLE tags of websites in Google’s Index. Why is it valuable? Because you can use it to decide between different keywords depending on how much competition each one has. Check it out!
UPDATE : Apparently, the tool that I linked to previously no longer works, so try out Brad Callen’s Search Engine Marketing program which has all of the SEO and keyword research tools you need.
