So If you are writing a Viral headline blog post, you want to make sure that is so appealing that people not only will click through, but they are going to read the rest of your post.

The title should be 6 to 7 words, because tends to do better than blog posts that have 3 words or 20 words. how to create catchy blog post titles

Why? how to create catchy blog post titles

Because it's either too little, so it does not explain to their visitor or reader what they are going to get when they read the rest of your post.​

Or if its too long its just overwhelming and it's a sentence, so none is going to read it.

If they are too long people will feel overwhelmed. If they are too short, they won’t be descriptive enough which means people won’t know what your blog post is about.

Also when its about 6 to 7 words tend to do really well and when you do a Google search you will notice that title in most cases won’t be cut off because it's not too long.

​If its cut off then its a bad thing because you will get less search traffic.


The second thing you need to do is using adjectives.

​When using adjectives in your headline more people will click on it.


The third thing you need to do is considering using the year.

You don’t always want to do this. It won’t work for every type of blog posts.
