Creating Article Titles to Suit SEO

Many times businesses look to SEO purposes for creating article titles and this is fine, however the title can quite dry and boring. A boring title will drive readers away, like a rainy day at a barbecue. The whole title does not have to be optimized for Google or even Mr. Yahoo. Inserting a keyword in the title is an acceptable practice as long as it does not subtract from the purpose of the title. Many times, people will bypass a good blog if the title is over optimized or it does not make sense. I know it can be hard to develop a strong skill to craft a great title, this is why I recommend reading a few blogs and getting a sense of how they do it.

My Strategy


    1. Keep it simple or face heartache


    1. Insert keyword between 2nd and before last word


    1. Make it natural as possible


    1. Try again if the title stinks


    1. See rule one

Creating article titlesshould be kept as simple as possible. Avoid making it complicated, too technical, too beautiful and boring. Are you up for a challenge? A great title comprises a bit of information, is a teaser and invokes the reader to buy into reading the material. These three little requirements can push us to either break or make us hand the job over to someone else. This choice may help free up time for you to focus on other issues that are important to function of your business. The next part is for your dedicated writer or read on to learn about capturingyour audience's attention.

Ha Ha! Email promotion does indeed work... the proof is the fact I am mentioning Sell Buy Fly who just sent me a fantastic intro e-mail. Anyone looking for a real estate agent? My apologies, tangent I am aware... I'm going to try and focus.

Creating Article Titles for the Audience

Now is the time to discuss the audience element. This one factor determines the success or failure of a given post, article, eBook, song, video, etc. Creating article titles for the audience falls back into the three requirements in the last section. Don't throw up the hands in frustration, yes writing happens to be more difficult than how we writers make it look. If you can grasp these three fundamentals to title creation, then you can master anything else involved with web writing. I have used these three tiny elements in all of my works and for those who have hired me. My strategy happens to be a little longer and slightly screwy for most tastes, but it works.

    • Information Rich


    • Teaser


    • Invoking Action

These three rudimentary steps will help you connect with your audience. Creating article titles from scratch or from the content body itself can help you establish a clear and precise level of communication. The title provides an entryway for your readers to discover the gem within the post or article. Sometimes a formal title must be used for technical content, but it does not mean that creativity cannot help you create a title. As you practice your title creation techniques, remember to keep hold on toall the titles that you write. You may not want to use a particular title for a post at the moment, you may want to save it and adjust it for a follow-up.

Creating Article Titles with Online Tools

There are online tools used for creating article titles and the like. These tools are simple and easy and can help in a pinch. Hubspot and Portent have such tools to help you create a list of possible titles to use in the future or for now. The downside to this is that they may have been used by other like-minded individuals. They take up to a minute to generate titles and topics for you to write about. These tools can help inspire you to develop your own titles down the road and should not be relied upon as the sole source for inspiration.

I'm going to point out that I got the idea for this article chatting with Phil from Traditions Holiday Lighting and Seasonal Decor. Many thanks for that. I guess you get inspiration in unexpected ways.
