Take any of today's world/country/local breaking news headlines - [depending on your geo target audience], - and write about that news today and post it on ANY blog niche today!
Because people are searching for info on that topic more than yesterday?
Headline: Plane crash disaster! = Subjects/Possible words:

1. Scan the first page of the newspaper - what hit YOU?
2. Think laterally about the story - can I write about it as the story?
- - How can I break it into segments / subjects / etc
3. Write about the story as the story and lead the way into your "twist" subject that leads
them as to why they are now here.
4. Use the keywords for the original article and add others related to your "twist"
If nothing else - you can help your overall search engine rankings at a minimum.
If your "twist" is closer to the subject - more visitors may look deeper into your site.
It is all about getting creative with your marketing, finding more free ways to generate traffic.
You are not a creative writer? Connect with somone on Fiverr.com - creat a deal with someone in your time zone or earlier zone - they get the headline and story from you - they write the article with the twist - you re-write/edit/check it - they get the $5 - you get free traffic and or better ranking. Rinse and repeat.
So that is it for toady - get creative with your marketing - think of your niche outside the box - build a "swipe file" with ideas - words - sentences that relate to a "twist" in your niche.
[Swipe file: Simple notebook file you add ideas, words, thoughts too related to the site/blog/subject - per project/site/blog etc - for later use to help the creatine juices].
More on that in the next blog.
Thank you for reading and I hope that gives you a little more towards your free traffic building methods.
