Stealing traffic with SiteMeter
I was visiting another site that blogs around the same general topic of Japan, and clicked on their SiteMeter icon, and saw they were getting about 350 hits per day, with the vast majority coming through search engines. I thought it would be possible to monitor a site like that, look at the hot keywords from Google, Technorati et al, and use that as hints on what sort of articles to write and with a bit of luck, steal some of their traffic.
It's awfully unethical, and I wouldn't do it myself, but would you?
