Writing the ultimate blog post titles is an art. It’s true that great blog posts have incredible blog post titles, which is why I planned to walk you through the process of creating the best blog post titles — and interestingly—I’ve tricked myself to do that in 500 words.
Everyone wants to write the best content for obvious reasons — no matter what your blog post topic is — the blog post titles are the real attention-seeker.
You have to admit this.
You often find top bloggers and content marketers making great blog post titles, and their articles rank well in the search…
It is not that simple…
They rank well in the search engines not because they make perfect blog post titles, instead, ranking higher in the search engines requires a number of things. The post topic, content quality, content size, backlinks, internal linking, social media sharing, and blog’s authority are the aspects that work simultaneously…
4 Factors of Writing Ultimate Blog Post Titles
These factors might look a no-big-deal. In fact, these factors can take your blog to the next level. Once the readers start finding these fundamental elements, your blog will start getting traction which will take your blog off the ground.
Take a look at the factors that influence the blog post titles:
It’s what you have got. What’s in the bag?
Be ready to give your best shot. The utility is the value readers are getting out of your blog post. Every time you complete your blog post, ask yourself some questions such as:
Have you given some useful information in this blog post?
Will it change someone’s life?
Will it really help the audience?
Once you start asking yourself such questions, you’ll feel the heat of responsibility… That heat will force you to GIVE more to the audience.
Analyze it. Is it helpful?
If your intention is to fill up the page, you won’t be focusing on the HELP factor.
The size of a blog post will not matter, even the team at YouMoz believes the same.
When you start pursuing the number of words, you miss out the HELP factor.
Remember, your blog post is successful if it is understandable and helping others.
Clarity is how well you have decorated your ideas and views.
Is your message clear enough to be understood?
Have you transferred your thoughts the right way?
Content Marketing Institute published a useful article on Content Quality. They described ‘Clarity’ as one of the qualities of the content.
One of the key elements of making a great blog post title is the fulfillment.
When you DELIVER value in your content, you feel satisfied…
And, it also shows with the feedback of your readers that you’ve done a good job.
Keep it short, simple, and clear.
The responsibility is bigger than you think.
Create to Engage. Write to Deliver.
This should be your goal of blogging and writing.
Be precise with your titles.
