How to Create the Best Headlines for Your Post

  • Think of headlines in the simplest of words, especially when you are writing it for the search engines. Think like a common person and think what a person would type when searching for a piece of content over the internet. Heavy words might seem interesting, but simple words are far more effective.
  • People always look for posts that tend to deliver some benefits. So in your headlines, try to denote the benefits which a product or service, or incident could deliver to their body. Also, headlines that tend to denote some danger do also get a lot of attention from the viewers.
  • Keep the headlines short and sweet. Max of 10 words in the headlines is considered ideal and that too, not something with too heavy or elongated words. The longer is your headline, the more attention it needs from the viewers and this would decrease the chances of viewers viewing it.
  • There are some kinds of posts where headlines are offered in a digital format rather than text. For instance, headlines in images and videos play a major role in whether or not you would get the attention of the people. Make sure these headlines are highlighted appropriately and show the essence of what you are about to deliver next.
