How to make money online by counting cards

Jun 6, 2008
Previously, I wrote that one of the best sources of bigger traffic is by optimizing the right keywords. To achieve this we make use of high trend, low density keywords or what I coined as HITLOD.

Just like how great artists and inventors suddenly come up with a brilliant idea, HITLOD keywords often come to you even if you do not search for them.

Going about my day to day experiences, I have discovered some great keywords. To cite an example, I searched the internet for the real story behind the movie 21 after I watched it. (This is what I usually do when I watch a great movie. I normally want to know the real story behind the movie since Hollywood often loosely base their script on the real story)

21 the movie is based on the book by Ben Mezrich."Bringing Down the House: The Inside Story of Six MIT Students Who Took Vegas for Millions." For the most part, the book is fictional however the life of the main character in the book is loosely based on the life of Jeffrey Ma one of the member of the MIT Blackjack Team who was a brilliant MIT student.

The MIT blackjack team was group of students and ex-students from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Harvard University, and colleges who used counting cards techniques to win in the game of blackjack.

Their operation was impressive, very organized and run like a real business. It said that they raked in an estimated $3 million to $5 million U.S dollars by simply counting cards in the game of black jack while playing in casinos worldwide.

The "business strategy" of the group was that "Blackjack is a beatable game" and you only have to use simple math in order to beat the game of black jack. This can be achieved by simply counting cards.

After I read several articles on the MIT black jack team and listened to the interviews of Jeffrey Ma. I realized that people would start to emulate them by gooogling "black jack", "counting cards in blackjack", "counting cards", "how to count cards" or other similar keywords. I tried several keyword combinations and the best one I could find was "counting cards." I became hooked on the "counting cards" fever myself, read some articles and watched some videos on how "counting cards" was done.

The keyword "counting cards" has been referred to by only 443,000 sites. The Google trends graph shows a spike. This could have occurred somewhere after the movie was released in theaters in late March 2008.

Since the search for the term "counting cards" only began in 2008 it can be surmised that interest in the keyword "counting cards" was brought about by the release of the movie 21.

"Counting cards" may be a good HITLOD keyword and it's being high trend could only be temporary. After several years, months or even weeks I believe people will stop searching for the "counting cards" keyword after interest in the movie has waned.

Nevertheless, "Counting cards" is still a HITLOD keyword for the time being, so strike when the iron is hot ! For as long as the movie is still hot, people will still search for the "counting cards" keyword and if you have properly optimized it, it will perhaps drive hundreds or even thousands of visitors to your site. So blog about "counting cards" today and count the traffic to your site ! (Perhaps later you could also count the money that comes with it)
