How to Write Better Headlines [Infographic]

18 Aug

The hardest part of blogging is coming up with a great headline. Headlines are a special breed of difficulty because they have to accomplish so many things in such a small amount of space. In just a few characters, you’ve got to instill intrigue, yet answer questions. You’ve got to make it work for Twitter and Facebook and LinkedIn and Pinterest and Google and Bing and any other network you hope to be found on.

It’s easy to let all of that overwhelm you and just settle for a “good enough” headline — but that’s not how you’re going to be able to grow your blog.

If you want to get your headlines past “good enough,” keep on reading. The infographic below by Neil Patel from Quick Sprout will give you a simple formula for enticing headlines. Though there’s no one-size-fits-all headline trope that guarantees a crazy influx of traffic, the tactics below should help you tweak your headlines to get your posts the attention they deserve.

    Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with SEO?
    I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good results.
    If you know of any please share. Cheers!
