Gay Halloween Costumes for 2013!

Welcome to the second year of Gay Halloween Costumes! Halloween is getting closer and closer, and many of you are looking for sexy and fun Halloween costume ideas.

We’ve been scouring the web for the hottest new trends for this year. As usual, superheroes are always a hit. There are many great ways gay couples can match up, like Batman and Robin. And then the “sexy” version of men in uniform is another popular choice. Example: sexy policeman, sexy sailor, sexy fireman. You get the point. Actually sexy soldier seemed to be the biggest seller for us last year, and it’s already trending again this year. Maybe camo is the way to go.

Monsters don’t seem to be of much interest to gay guys for Halloween, so we probably won’t be featuring as many of those as we did last year. Vampires and zombies seem to have run their course too. I think last year was the last hurrah for the walking dead.

So what’s next? Mermen? That would be fun! We’ll see.

Stay tuned for fun new Halloween costumes ideas! We’ll be adding them in the next few weeks.

For a small window of time, we were coming up in the #3 spot for gay halloween costumes on Google. Ah, it was a good time in early to mid-October 2012. People were buying costumes, happy with the options we’d recommended, and life was good. Then we disappeared again.

This has certainly been a confusing and interesting experience. This site launched at the end of July and skyrocketed to the top of Google. Then it disappeared in August, re-appeared in September, disappeared in October. We know that search results can fluctuate, but never this drastically. It was feast or famine. If we showed up, we were nearly on top. Otherwise, we didn’t come up at all.

Hopefully now that we’ve established a small base of costumers and fans, we’ll be able to earn a positive reputation and climb our way up the Google ladder. Maybe by 2013, everyone who searches for gay halloween costumes will find us in the top spot. That’s where we want to be, because we LOVE Halloween and we’re as passionate about it as our customers are.

Happy Halloween 2012, everyone! Have fun and be safe.

It’s a great day for a monster movie marathon on TV! Frankenstein, Halloween, Friday the 13th, to name a few. What are you watching this weekend?

This is also a great opportunity to buy a last minute Halloween costume. Check out our selection of villains and monsters.

I was recently reminded of one of my favorite Halloween movies from my childhood, “Mr. Boogedy.” It was first shown on The Disney Channel in 1986 and was rerun several times throughout the years.

The Gay Halloween Costumes site was started in July, 2012 with the simple goal of letting people know about fun and sexy Halloween costumes, geared towards a gay audience. Sometimes there will be other news too, like classic horror films or other Halloween themed stuff that’s coming out. Basically I just wanted to create a fun place for people who love Halloween as much as my husband and I do.

Things got off to a surprising start. Within a few weeks of setting up the blog, the site skyrocketed to page 1 of Google’s search results! I was so happy and pleased. I was also a little pressured, as you might imagine, because I was getting daily visitors and the site wasn’t ready yet. But nonetheless, I wanted to reach out to anyone who stopped by and offer them some cool ideas for Halloween.

That’s where I messed up apparently. I joined a program that offered an easy link generator so I could feature Halloween costumes that I liked and felt other gay men would like too. I worked very hard on setting them up too. But a few days after I started posting them, this site disappeared from Google’s results.

How did the site rise so high and then fall so low in only a month? I was stunned and didn’t where to find the answers.

Today I think I finally found the answer. I was doing some reading on Google and found out that they don’t like it when sites are heavy with advertised links because they think they are junk. My mistake, and now that I think about it, I do understand. It makes perfect sense.

I’m sorry, Google. I know this is kind of cheesy to say, and I really hope your search engine spiders will crawl back on over to my site and give it a second chance. (Part of this is intended to be humor, of course, as I realize a real human at Google won’t read this. But spiders will crawl the page, and I hope they re-list the site).

I have removed the Halloween costume posts that had advertiser links and I hope that will help. My intention was never to junk up the site. I just thought I was offering some good ideas for Halloween costumes.

Thankfully it’s still August, and I have some time to regroup and think about what I want to do to expand on the site.

In the mean time, crawl away, Google spiders. The site is fixed! 🙂

According to our web stats, we’re receiving a surprising number of new visitors and our site isn’t even officially launched yet! How exciting!

Well we’re hard at work building it so please bookmark us and keep coming back. We have a Facebook page too. In the mean time, you may be wondering what this site is all about.

I’m a gay man who loves Halloween. It’s still July, but I’m already talking with my husband about costume ideas and making plans with friends for Halloween parties. If you love Halloween as much as I know, you certainly understand.

So I built this site for other gay men and gay couples who are looking for fun Halloween costume ideas for 2012. When I find a costume I think you’ll like, I’ll post a photo with a link to where you can buy it online. I’ll also try to find the lowest price, because who doesn’t like a deal, right? Sometimes the price of a costume can vary by $10 or $20, and it’s the same exact costume by the same maker. So why pay more, right?

In a nutshell, that’s what this site will be all about. So welcome to all the new visitors, and I apologize that the site isn’t ready yet. I just registered it a few weeks ago and had no idea people would already be finding it. But I’m very happy that you have. So again, please be sure to bookmark it. And I hope to see you again soon!
