I expanded these terms using Overture's keyword tool and then gathered related RSS feeds and place them on my site.

You know,repparttar 127856 pageant winner that lost her crown by appearing in Playboy. Now this is something that I didn't expect from a website that was just an experiment.

I couldn't have expected it. I just picked up news feeds that contained her name. She created a buzz. A buzz that my RSS feed based site caught a week before anyone else did.
