# Upload a blog post with a title very similar to the trending term – ideally you want your title to be an exact match of the trending term or at least at the beginning of your title tag.
# Make sure it’s pinged to Google blog search, you’ll probably have this set up by default but it’s important to be indexed early.
# Point a few links in its direction, they don’t have to be particularly high quality, perhaps from your twitter account or from a couple of popular blogs you know get spider-ed often and ideally have their links followed
# Make sure you have plenty of internal links pointing at the page – if you have a really complex page rank sculpting system in place the pages getting cached that day might not encourage the bots to spider the page you’re hoping to slingshot into the rankings.
# All the usual SEO best practice tips apply, key phrase in url, h1 etc. But you’re blogs already set up like that right?
