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.
- Trivial: Halloween #Costume #candy #pumpkin #Decorations
- The scary stuff: #vampire #witch #ghost #Frightened #spiders #webs haunted #cemeteries #horror #bats #zombie
- Search combinations: haunted house, Halloween + recipes, Halloween+Costume, Halloween + Decorations, #Halloween + #movies, #Halloween + #parties

- Spooky all year round: #Paranormal #Wicca #wiccan #Pagan #Magic #Spell #occult #tarot
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.
