  • 'Where to go on holiday in...' SEO content
    'Where to go on holiday in...' SEO contentSEO content series for the Skyscanner UK travel blog. 'Where to go on holiday in [X month]' promoted Skyscanner's tool allowing people to search for the best month to travel, and when to book. As the copywriter, I targeted Google micro moments (FAQs) about destinations by embedding relevant headers and including key tips on accommodation, events and food & drink, as well as using data provided by Skyscanner on cheapest times of year to buy flights.
