Since the advent of YouTube and video content, even fewer people are reading blogs. It means as bloggers we have to be very creative from the top bottom. That is right from the title.
Me, i tired the way upwothy does; i write 25 titles/headlines for one blog. Analyze them and settle on one. I use the runners up in social media and forum posts.
How do you come up with your catchy blog headlines/titles?
I try to summarize the point of the article, throw in a few buzzwords and SOMETIMES a little click bait if it suits, although I try to avoid it.
Though I am not much into blogging, I can still suggest how to be creative with blog titles. You just need to think from visitor's perspective. Think, if you were a web surfer, what title would have made you click on it or made you curious. Obviously, we want to avoid click bait here but try to make the title as interesting as possible. Keyword research is another factor that you need to look at and include the best keyword(s) in the title.
