HALLOWEEN POST: Haunted tags for you

Halloween via tags

Happy Halloween! Recently, more than ever before, an increased number of people participates in content generation. Blogs, Facebook, Twitter, and the many other content publishing tools enable endless sharing about the coming holiday. I decided to gather some of the celebrating Halloween voices, from all around the web, in the form of tags.

Twitter Search

Observation/tip about hashtags: For the most part, I got better results on Twitter Search not using hashtags. I got a lot of spam tweets using hashtags. For instance, the search for haunted yields better results than #haunted. There is no need to ignore Hashtags, those are very useful in some scenarios like conferences, meet up, and integration with other media channels that broadcast simultaneously (this is for another blog post, I guess), but apparently, hashtags are too easy to take advantage of.

Google Insights for Search

Looking at few Halloween search patterns in the last 30 days, using Halloween related keywords, revealed that the people in Idaho seems to care the most about Halloween, the people in Utah search the most for Haunted house and Pumpkin, and the people of Connecticut are looking for Halloween costumes more than others, at least based on Google’s data.

Happy Halloween!

    Man that is a lovely house. It looks like the house that was used on Pushing Daisies. I really wish that show hadn’t been canceled back when the most recent writers strike happened. It was such an amazing show and they had really witty and smart writing.
