People may think that writer’s block doesn’t exist, but let’s be honest… at one point or another, there will be no other way to describe this feeling other than writer’s block. It’s the feeling of running out of ideas and not knowing how to express your ideas in a way that’s different and new.
You might be googling blogging tips to try to get you out of your rut, but still, be stuck at nowhere. Every writer will eventually reach this point, and it’s a point that really sucks. In theory, new ideas for your blog and blog titles may seem unlimited, after writing about the same content it may feel like you’ve covered everything.
Your blog titles need to be:
Without having a blog title that’s attractive, your current readers and potential new readers might not discover the value that your blog has to offer. There are other important factors that make up an effective and great blog post besides the title, but the title is like a book cover – it’s a reader’s first impression.
- Actionable – Your blog titles shouldn’t be passive, great titles convey action. Your readers have come to learn about something on your blog, so the title should tell your readers what the content will deliver.
- Brief – Don’t make your readers get bored, simple is better. A shorter title will get the point across to your readers, and your title will less likely be cut off by search engine results.
- Definitive – Be confident enough to make proclamations in your blog titles, after all, readers appreciate trusted and valuable resources- so this way they’ll know what you’re talking about from your expertise.
- Clear – Don’t use vague language in your blog titles as it may confuse your reader, so prefer clear over clever. Especially when it comes to aiming to rank higher in search engines and organic traffic.
- Keyword-Optimized – There should be a focus keyword in your title for SEO purposes. Your blog’s title doubles as the page title for your blog post’s web page on most platforms, including HubSpot.
- Intriguing – In the world of online marketing, readers judge a blog post by its title- much like people judging a book by its cover before considering looking at it or buying it. So make sure that your blog titles are informative and interesting at the same time.
