- Make it descriptive
A “must have” for the blog title is to be more descriptive than the title of a magazine or newspaper article.
Because, when someone reads a magazine or newspaper title, they have in front of them, the images, captions, everything to help them make a decision to read on.
When we speak about a blog, on the web, a blog post title is usually seen in the search results without this additional information. Therefore, it has to be more descriptive what the article is about.
- Keep it short and below the limit
Generally speaking, it’s a good idea to keep blog title below Google’s display limit of 70 characters, because the post title will be used as the title tag that appears in the search results. That’s why some bloggers talk about the ideal title that has eight words or less.
- Use Your Keyword Research
If you already have a blog, you’re probably doing keyword research to help you figure out what your readers are thinking about, looking for, and the words they use when doing so.
So, include all this when you next time creates your blog title, and you’ll get great blog title, that’s going to be worth readers attention.
