A new way to game Google

A recently Google launched Trends. Trends are the searches that are showing big spikes. It is different than Zeitgeist which just shows the most popular searches. They are retiring Zeitgeist for Trends and Hot Trends.

Today I checked my referral logs and I noticed that my recent post about the Stanford Impostor, Azia Kim got a lot of hits from Hot Trends. I did not expect to get 50 extra hits just because of this post.

Since there is a list of Hot Trends every day, could I boost my hits by just going to this list and writing something? How would that effect the Hot Trends. This would be more important if I was selling ads.
