With Halloween this weekend, hopefully you already took our advice and recirculated your Halloween content from the past! Plus you’re currently publishing new Halloween posts? As a reminder, Halloween posts should be published this week at the latest, but honestly it was a good idea to have them circulating all throughout October. Don’t wait until after Halloween to publish posts about your parties and costumes. By then, it’s too late for readers. Use those only for personal posts, NOT SEO.
If you’re a bit late and still working on your Halloween content, don’t stress! Today’s post is for you! We’re here to get those creative juices flowing and remind you what SEO friendly content really looks like. So get excited because below we’re sharing a list of the absolute best Halloween blog posts we’ve honestly ever seen. These posts are spooky, informative, unique, and add value in some way that most typical Halloween content doesn’t. They are formatted in a way that search engines can understand. And the content is packed with information to make sure the reader really gets the value they’re searching for. Plus we just genuinely find these posts uniquely over the top and one of a kind.

A SEO’s, we love a good itinerary. Travel guides can really be great for SEO overall. And even better if you’re doing a guide in the CREEPIEST city in America.

In this post, Jessica explains that Salem is one of the spookiest cities in the USA, then guides you through all of the best places to eat, drink, explore, and of course take in all the spookiness! Definitely a fun trip to plan on Halloween if you want to immerse yourself in the scary.
Another fun way to do an Itinerary is to take all of the best truly Halloween themed events and round them up in your city! It’s super SEO friendly and can help build up your local authority.

So we love these kinds of posts! You can do this in any city, and recirculate this type of post year after year!
When it comes to Halloween cocktail content, there is A LOT out there. However for as much as you’ll see out there, it does tend to fall within the same general guidelines. Dark drink. dry ice, etc. When it comes to SEO, finding a UNIQUE angle is actually really important. Which is why we’re adding this Purple Witch’s Brew Recipe to our list of favorite Halloween blog posts! It’s a unique twist on Witch’s brew and adds a little something extra to the spooky cocktail. Lori still keeps the spooky vibes going with glitzy spiders and some dry ice of course. But its not your typical Witch’s brew that’s for sure!
