How to Double Your Traffic By Writing Catchy Headlines

Sharing is caring!

Let me make one thing clear from the start, crafting a good headline is a science. But it's not a rocket science. It’s not even close to it.

You, I and even newbie’s can write good headlines by just putting some efforts and reading this post.

Writing good headline is a science.

That we all know and we also know that science always has some formulas and syntax to help us to learn the abc of science in the easiest manner.

So, in the same manner, you able to find lots excellent formulas on the internet for creating good headlines and today I'm increasing the count of those headline writing formulas by sharing some of mine formulas of writing better headlines to get more attention of your readers.

Brainstorming:

Are you a thinkaholic?

If yes! Then you have a big advantage that others don't have.

Because good thinkers can easily brainstorm their mind to come up with some cool headlines while others who have difficulties with thinking too much will still strike there head to the desk to think a good headline for their post or content.

Convey your message:

Your headlines must convey your main message that you have explained in your rest of content.

Because if your headline is promising something else and you giving something else in your rest of content then you are going to lose your credibility as well as your readers.

So make sure that you deliver the same thing that your headline promises to deliver.

EXAMPLE: 5 Content Writing Rules That You Must Follow.

This headline will work like wonder if you give the same info that this headline is promising to give. And if you deliver something else or any off-topic content then this headline is not worthy.

Keep it short and simple:

Headlines are short by their nature.

So it doesn't make sense why some blogger or writer writes lengthy headline and thinks that this headline is going to work like magic.

And not only have they written big headline they also showcase that they know some good English words that you and I don't know.

And use those words to write their headline that are not easy to read or understand.

So if you really want to write catchy headlines then you must write it short and in simple language. Because short and simple is always better.

State the benefit:

Tell your reader about the benefits that they Are going to get after reading your full content. Benefits are things that everybody loves to get and they do anything to get the benefit.

So it’s good idea to create a headlines that tells the benefits if reading whole content

like: Earn more in Adsense by simple implementing these tips.

People will gladly read the rest of content to know how they can make more profits in Adsense.

Amaze them:

People want to read more secret tips rather than normal blog articles.

You can amaze people by using words like “will this work” “little known” “lies” “instant results” etc.

Such headlines always hit your subconscious mind and you would like to read about that amazing thing even when you are not interested to read.

In his title “37 Amazingly Effective List Building Tips You Can Use Today” Adam shocked his readers by sharing Amazingly effective tips.

So more people have shown the interest to read this article.

How to's still works:

“How to” articles are stills best choice of users to read. They always googles anything by appending how to in front of any search term like “how to earn more” etc..

So it makes sense that writing how to headline cans still works for all of us.

Blogging is all about helping people, so if you are teaching any specific thing with your “how to” blog post then people are definitely going to read this.

Reveal the secret:

In one of his recent articles, Matthew Woodward revealed that the secret of his success was his case studies.

Go to his blog and you are going to read in-depth case studies. His case studies are going to push you to use those tools which he reviews on his blog.

So revealing the secret is one of the effective techniques to get more people on your blog.
