How to Write a Good Title?

I've been doing some research for a while about this and I decided to create a training to share with you my findings about what words/titles attract Internet users the most.

I also read various sources which shared their investigations on hundreds of article/blog post titles and how popular they were in social networks, whatsoever.

Assessing the top 20% of blog posts, marketers came to the following 7 conclusions...

OK, Conclusion #1: ==>

Great blog. You most have ESP-N, lol I have been wondering about this very topic. Haven't had the time to do the research. Thanks for your timely blog.

Hi Keith,
Thanks for your kind words!
Just one thing... What's ESP-N and what did you mean exactly? :)
KeithHughes Premium
Just a bad joke of mine. ESP-extra sensory perception.
ESPN-entertainment and sports programming network.
There so close(their initials) I make a joke of it.
Zarina Premium
Well, now I get the joke ;)
By context, I thought along the extra-sensory perception but then when I googled ESPN it was the entertainment and sports programming network - so it got me confused :))
Thanks for clarifying!

Thanks for the info. I really struggle to write good headlines. My keywords are usually 3-4 word phrases (sometimes longer) and I find it really hard to include them in a catchy headline without making the headline way to long.

Many of the blog posts that I see being shared on social media have very catchy headlines, but I think that they are often not using keywords. They are going for attention grabbing and hoping that their blogs get noticed via social media shares and not through google searches (there is no way some of these blogs would come up if I searched for that particular topic in google).

Hi Tanja,

I am glad to hear you found this training useful. I didn't find a super lot of information at WA on this stuff, so decided to share my research.

I know what you are talking about - social media is a powerful thing but it is better to combine it with the google search. I recently signed up for Jaaxy, so it makes life easier with the alphabet search.

Also, what I think is that the catchy titles that you see do have the keyword in them, and the rest of the words is just for attention. And then in the link section of a blog post, they only would include the keyword itself (without the catchy part of the title).

So that's my guess.

Let me know if the tips from this training helped you in the future with grabbing readers' attention :)

Thanks for stopping by and I will see you around!
