Writing Effective Blog Post Titles

Author : Charlie Bond

Creating and running your own blog is easier than ever, thanks to free blogging platforms like Wordpress. However, bloggers do often face dilemmas, and one of them is not coming up with good enough titles to grab the attention of their readers. This problem affects both new and experienced bloggers. There are many factors that cause your title to not work. This is why it's important to make your titles stand out. Use the following tips to start writing great blog post titles.

Headlines need to offer up usable solutions for readers. This means that your readers should believe that your goal for the post is to be useful--why else would they want to click on the post title? Time is precious, and it becomes even more precious when you're deal with Internet users. This is why you need to work on your title so that it conveys a lot--enough to get people to click on your post. Titles need to communicate a legitimate purpose in addition to being good looking and easy to read. Your battle is almost completely won when your title is good and right.

Keep your title direct and to the point. If you really want your headline to work, make sure your readers understand what you're offering. Be direct and very clear in your writing and tone for your title. Your headline can be a question or a statement, but as long as it gives out the intended message, you won't have a problem. For the most part, cutesy titles that make attempts at mystery or suspense do little more than turn the audience off. Remember, the golden rule is to be simple in your approach towards writing post titles, and at the same time make them attractive.

Use a commanding voice when you write titles for your blog posts. Oddly enough it's this "voice" of authority that leads people to follow what you have to say. Readers will see you as having an air of authority when you do this. Secondly, your title will probably win your readers on the pretext of this very same authority. When you're giving readers instructions, road maps, how-to guides, etc. it is also much easier for your title to live up to expectations. The other thing you need to keep in mind is that a commanding voice isn't one that is rude and/or arrogant. Creating effective blog post titles is the only way you can get your readers to start reading your posts. You could have the best content on your blog but if your titles are bad it won't matter because nobody will read it.
