We often put hours in penning an article but when it comes to writing the title, in most cases we simply write something relevant to the blog topic without thinking that whether it will create any impact on the readers at all. We found that short, meaningful title in a question form often triggers the interest of readers to click a blog. Looking for some more ideas to write titles of blogs or articles that will compel readers to click.

Have interesting content for one and take time to build the audience. People are already sick of linkbait headlines as they have been overused.

Depends on the niche. Build a Twitter list for your niche, collect 50-100 influencer accounts and watch who gets the most retweets. Then look at their titles and see what you can learn.

Titles are call to action memes.

You can be "funny", "provocative", "serious", "rabid", "evil", "sexy", "prudish", "cute", "fuzzy", "freaky", "friendly", "poor me", "money bags"...

Your topic will determine your titles. Your PASSION will determine exactly how you go about that. Your ability to string words together will be the mortar that holds it all together. If you are any of the above (and about a zillion other "passions" that are out there) you will know how to title your content. A title is the gateway to the article. It details in short what the article is about and at the same time is a call to action for the potential reader to jump on it like white on rice.

For example, the topic and sub on the OP should have read:

A How To...

And every Tom, Dick and Harry would be here to see what the heck that was. :)
