Wondering what content to post for Halloween this year? Get inspired with this list of 161 best Halloween blog post ideas for a variety of niches.

Seasonal content is a really important type of content to create for your blog. That is because seasonal blog posts get high search volumes on Google and Pinterest during that specific season. 

161 Best Halloween Blog Post Ideas

If you can get your post to rank in Google or to appear in the Pinterest algorithm, you are bound to see high traffic, lots of pageviews and shares on that post.

On top of that, creating these types of blog posts and keeping them updated throughout the years is a very smart strategy, because posts like this can bring you an influx of views every single year during that season.

The best time to post seasonal content is actually a few weeks or even months before. 

Why?

Because blog posts take time to start ranking in Google search and even on Pinterest. Which means, ideally, you will publish your Halloween content, for example, 1-2 months beforehand.

This way, your blog post has a chance of ranking by the time people actually start searching for that topic online.

Also, if your seasonal content does not perform the best that year that you first publish it, don’t get discouraged. 

Make sure to update it every year a few months before the season hits, and there is a high chance that your blog post will pick up in traffic around that time every year. Especially if your blog post is well optimised for SEO. 

If you’re unsure how to optimise your blog post for SEO, you need 2 to know 2 things. The first thing is to follow this SEO Checklist for every post that you write. 

And the second thing is to learn how to do keyword research before you start writing your post, which we cover in Blogging Secrets.

So if you haven’t already created any blog posts for the season, whether that’s for fall or for Halloween, then I hope this post gives you some inspiration to get writing.

161 Best Halloween Blog Post Ideas

How do I find blog post ideas?

Whether you are looking for blog post ideas for evergreen, all year-round content, or just for seasonal content, there are a few methods to follow that will help you get great ideas easily.

The first way you could do this content research is by looking on Pinterest.

If you go into the Pinterest search bar and you type in a word related to your niche, you will see a list of suggestions for that topic. And if you click on any of those suggestions, you will be able to see exactly what type of content is already created on that topic.

See if you can put your own spin on any of those topics in a blog post form.

The second way you could get more blog post ideas is by repeating this process very similarly in Google search. The search bar in Google can be an amazing place for you to get ideas for content. And not just any content, but ideas and questions that people are actually searching for.

We dive into more details about this in the blog post about How to stay organised as a blogger.

The third way is for you to sit down with pen and paper (or a digital form of that), and brainstorm your content. Think about the main pillars of your content and what type of posts you could create that would be helpful for your audience.

If you have no idea what your audience needs help with or what their struggles are, have a look at the market research part of this blog post about How to Create an Ebook

Yes, the post is about creating ebooks, but you will see in the beginning the exact process I go through to find my audience’s pain points and struggles. So that I know to create content that is actually helpful for them.

How to come up with creative content ideas

If you’re stuck in a creative rut and have no idea what content to create next, there are a few things you could do to spark that creativity again.

For example, you could read a book related to your niche, listen to a podcast, watch a YouTube video, scroll through Instagram (in the purpose of doing research). 

This does not mean you should go around and copy other people’s content. It is simply for inspiration and for you to put your own spin on a certain topic you might find interesting.

Sometimes you will watch a YouTube video completely unrelated to your topic, but it will spark some ideas that you could try for your own blog. 

Most of the time, the more you learn and consume, the more inspired you will feel.
