I'm a pro-tem mod at the beta gardening.SE site and while I was going through the analytics data, especially the "Search keywords" (which I interpret to mean "what people typed in their search engine to get to this site"), I found quite a few interesting and on-topic searches for which there are no questions on the site. Presumably these people were directed here from a random search, and most likely left unsatisfied, because they couldn't find what they were looking for.
Now, questions (and answers) on some of those search terms would be a great addition to the site, and I'd like to take some of those and frame questions. Unfortunately, I (or the other mods) can't possibly ask all those questions and besides, I don't know enough about some of them to even ask a question. Also, it would amount to giving the mods an unfair advantage as only we have access to the data. This brings me to my question (rather, a suggestion):
Can we filter down the searches terms and share some of the really interesting ones with the community and solicit questions/answers from people who are knowledgable in those areas? Perhaps a fortnightly/monthly meta post?
I believe this is a good way to build the site, especially in the beta stage, as you're using data to actively fix areas where you're deficient. So the next person to google a similar phrase and reach us will (hopefully) have a positive experience from the site. This probably might not be a feasible idea for well established sites, whereas for budding sites, it can go a long way.
