Title of blog post is an attention grabber. Anyone who visit your post, first look at the title of post. Title is not only important for reader perspective, but it also important for SEO perspective, so be specific while choosing a correct title for your post. Don’t do mistakes by writing title for search engines only. There are lot lot more other things than emphasizing on search engines. Don’t ignore Social media which is a good source of visitors or traffic on your blog. Social media visitors generally come from killer titles.

1. Don’t use long Title
People generally use very long title for the post. They want to give every information in the title. This is a wrong way to write a title. The correct way is to make your title as simple as possible. Don’t try to make it so long. Title of up to 50 letters is considered as a good title.
2. Don’t make it too short
Short title is also not considered good. Try to tell about your article in sufficient words. But don’t try to minimize the title. Short title sometimes lose visitors attention. So try to make it good to read and attractive. Instead of using “Blogging tools” you can use “25 killer blogging tools for bloggers”.
3. Insert numbers
It is my personal experience that titles having number perform well in social media. If you are writing list post then try to give a number in a title. For example: 25 killer WordPress tips, 100 great WordPress plugins for Bloggers instead of using Great WordPress plugins for bloggers.
4. Use “How to” and “Guide” in Title
There is a heavy demand of “How to” articles on internet. People generally search information on Google. Their search starts from “How to”. So if you are writing any tutorial then start your title from “How to”. Ex. How to install WordPress Manually.
5. Use Keywords In Title
Titles play a crucial role in SEO. So using keywords in a title of any post is a good practice for SEO. Try to use keyword in the starting of a title. It is probable that any visitors who search with the keyword will land out at your page through search engines.
These are some basic ideas of selecting a topic for blog post. Do you use these techniques to select a good title.
