How to Write a GREAT Blog Post Title

This is a subject that many people are interested in but few understand.

There are two goals that you want to accomplish with your title.

First, you want it to be search engine friendly and be something that will be displayed in a lot of searches.
Second, and perhaps most important, you want the title to encourage people to click and read YOUR post as opposed to the other links that are presented in the search.

Check out this handful of articles to get some great ideas for blog titles from some of the best blogs.

  1. Hi Carl, Many successful bloggers have told me they spend almost as much time on their titles and subtitles as on the post itself, which tells us how important that aspect of content really is. Thanks for including me in your list of articles - appreciate it, and glad you found my post helpful!
