Spooky Search Engines On Halloween

Google, Yahoo, Live, Ask, DogPile and many more are celebrating Halloween with special spooky logos or themes. Below you will find the logos and themes I spotted throughout the search industry.

Google seems to have totally ‘geeked out’ the fear in Halloween by adding spooky thoughts to their robots.txt file:

User-agent: zombies
Disallow: /brains

Without further ado, here are the logos and themes I found throughout the industry:
