As you know, the posts are conformed by 3 parts: Title, Content and Comments. Specially, the title and the content are which makes a post more or less popular. When you are trying to get new readers, no matter if you are doing it through social media networks or through search engines, you have one chance to attract the reader’s attention. What is that thing which makes you click on a post when you are surfing by the web, The Title!
The title is the first impression of the post, and because of that, you need to learn how to write a title correctly. I have read several blogs with good content, but they are not read by many people due to the way the blogger writes the titles of his posts. This is really sad because they are working so hard to being read, but the people don’t come! May be they are looking the way to improve this, but they can’t notice that it’s all about the titles.
So to attract people to your posts, you need to write catchy titles. In the title, you need to give the people a hint, about what they will find once they click the link to your post. But it is not enough, because you can tell them a hint by writing anything there… For example, in this post I could write The Post’s Title, but If I did, probably you won’t be here reading this. You need to do it interesting or controversial, this way you will catch more readers just by reading the title of your post.
In addition to writing catchy titles, also you can write a question. Writing a question as the title of a post, you will make the readers feel that you are talking directly with them. So, it’s possible to get even more readers with interrogative titles, because it means that automatically they will comment in the post to share their opinion, making the post a little interactive and creating a discussion, which will give you several comments to moderate .
