It’s that time of year. Black Friday (and Cyber Monday) offers great opportunities for saving money on travel deals, digital nomad services, blogging tools, and software services to help get the most out of your travels or document your trips.
There are lots of deals out there. But you don’t have to buy everything. Don’t let the scarcity factor blur your judgment. The best deals are not always obvious. I’ve put together a list of the most useful deals for travel bloggers, and for travelers in general for Black Friday 2022. I hope you find something that saves you money, helps you travel better, become a digital nomad, or build your travel blog. Now is the perfect time to bag some bargains.
Bloggers can benefit from huge discounts on website themes, SEO tools, email marketing software, photography hosting platforms, writing software, social media schedulers, and much more. If you know where the deals are, you could buy every piece of software you need for the rest of the year with massive savings. And let’s not forget the Black Friday lifetime deals. Yeah, we love those 😀
The official date is Friday, November 25 but deals often last a week or two. At least until after Cyber Monday deals are finished. Some deals even start at the beginning of November 2022. (Every day is Friday in November!!). Cyber Monday is Monday, November 28.

Get 45% off on all Lonely Planet Books.
While travel blogs and travel websites have taken a lot of the traveling public’s attention away from Lonely Planet, this once-all-powerful brand is still producing good guidebooks. But these days, I prefer LP’s guides on hiking, gastronomy, and travel writing.
Every book is meticulously researched, written, and edited. And I find myself spending more time on the historical introductions and detailed background information than the actual tips and advice. Every travel fan should take a look.
Here’s your chance to get every book at almost half price.

A simple equation in SEO that determines whether you get organic traffic from Google and search engines. It’s this: (high volume) keyword + high rank = High traffic levels.
Essentially, if you want more free traffic to your blog, you need to have good rankings for popular keywords. But how do you know if your keywords are in position 1 on Google or even page one? How do you know the number of people searching for a particular keyphrase? Well, you could use Google Search Console. But you’d also be shooting in the dark. A much better option is to use a rank tracker. SE Ranking is the best in class for tracking your lucrative keywords. Want to know where you rank for “Top 10 cafes in Paris”? Use SE Ranking to track the movements of your keyword. Monitor how search engines rank your website with ease. It’s one of those digital marketing tools you can’t live without.

November 25, 2022 to December 1, 2022 (11:59pm Pacific)
In case you didn’t know, website speed is a big ranking factor for Google. If your website is super slow, your 5000-word article on the best cafes in Rome won’t appear in the top 10 on Google or the other search engines. Why? Because Google wants to give users a great experience. Websites that take 60 seconds to load do not provide a good experience. Do yourself a favour and speed up your WordPress site with a caching plugin. WP Rocket should be one of your must-have WordPress plugins if you care about website speed.
But don’t pay full price. The Black Friday price is sure to please travel blogging bargain shoppers.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do you recommend the Bluehost Black Friday deal?
I don’t recommend Bluehost at any time of year. The service is sub-par, the admin panel is booby-trapped with up-sells, and the only reason every blogger on the planet recommends it is because of the high affiliate commissions offered.
I have an online business. Are these deals only for bloggers, travel bloggers, and content website owners?
Most of the black friday deals listed on this page can be used in multiple industries and niches. If you have a website and you want to increase traffic or convert more customers, there is something for you here.
Which hosting service do you recommend?
I recommend two different WordPress hosting services. Both are excellent and both companies have an excellent Black Friday hosting offer. Try Siteground or Fastcomet. Both hosting services will help you grow your blog to the next level and they come at an affordable price (especially every November)
