A great title can guarantee if people will read or not your post.
That’s why you should give a little time to write an awesome one. Don’t try to rush through it just to get your post out there. Because it may not matter…
What You Earn From An AWESOME Title
Increasing Your Clickthrough Rate
More people click on your article and that helps you rank higher on search engines.
People Read It
A good title gets more people on your site to read the article and not only. If they like your article, they’ll check your site for useful content.
More Chances for Sharing
A funny yet accurate title will urge people to share your content with friends because they love it!
Tips to Write An Awesome Headline
Let’s see a few tips on how to create awesome titles:
1. Brainstorm for a While
Don’t use the first title that comes to mind. Give yourself some time to find not a decent title, but a great one. I’d recommend you to write 10 titles and choose the best one from them.
2. Always Include the Keyword
Never forget to have the keyword in your title. And the closer to the beginning of the title, the better.
3. Capitalise the First Letters
Capitalise the first letter of each word to make people notice them easier!
4. Appeal to Emotions
Focus on people’s problems. On the ones your article gives the solution to.
5. Use Trigger Words
Use words that influence people. I have a list with some of them below.
6. Use Numbers
I have no idea why, but titles with numbers seem to get clicked more. Maybe because they break the pattern from all-letter titles?
7. Don’t use Clickbait
People hate clickbait, so don’t oversell your article. Make sure your title represents your article accurately.
8. Boring Topics don’t need Boring Headlines
There are a few topics that aren’t appropriate for making fun of it. Serious crimes, some social phenomena, etc.
But for the rest of them, a funny headline can add a lot to a topic. So if possible, go for fun.
9. Limit the Length
Most search engines use the first 60 characters of your title maximum. So make sure your titles are less than that, so they get cut.
