create the perfect blog title

Have you ever written the perfect article only to find you are stumped when it comes to creating your catchy keyword friendly blog title?  You’re not alone.  We all have those days when writing a pithy, emotionally responsive blog title feels just outside our reach.

In my article, How to Write a Catchy Blog Post Title that POPS I talked about the fine line we walk as bloggers trying to generate an eye popping, finger clicking, Google juice lovin’ blog title all while maintaining a human aspect.  Finding the balance between sexy and direct can throw any blogger into convulsions.

But what if there were a way to create a perfect blog title without agonizing over it?

Why You Need a Swipe File

On those days when you need a little motivation, keeping a swipe file will go a long way towards creating that perfect blog post title

Not familiar with a swipe file?  Here's how it works:

As you visit and read through other blogs look for popular posts that generated buzz.  Write down the title in your swipe file to play around with at a later date.   

The key is to create a list of blog titles that you can refer back to on those days you suffer from "blog title" writers block. 

Focus on titles that contain a few of these features:

  • They maintain the KISS method of writing titles.  They're not too wordy but get the point across.
  • They inject emotion and cause the reader to relate to the post immediately.
  • They add the all important keyword "FREE."
  • They are controversial and not afraid to stir the pot.
  • They ask an open ended question like "What Would You Do with a Million Dollars??"
  • They communicate a benefit your reader can't live without.
