Five Breakthrough Headline Words To Gain Traffic To Your Site

You know that you must have an effective headline to drive traffic to your blog.

Creating content worth keeping the readers attention is challenging. 

Wade Harman    writes about blogging with great insight to the bloggers community and offers awesome tips to improve one’s traffic flow.

Headlines using these five words can increase traffic to your blog site immediately. 

#1 Curious

Remember the saying “curiosity killed the cat”?   People are curious by nature.  There’s something about the need to know how, what and when things are happening. Sparking the readers attention is challenging;  however when the writer throws in certain words readers need to know more.

#2 How To 

Many topics are covered with these two words.  How to increase traffic,  build an email list, write an article, write an ebook.  Offer tips with content creating value and they will keep coming back for more.

One of my colleges and PAC Expert Author Joan Harrignton writes about How To Be More Focused.
#3 Free 

Free suggests you are giving them something.   A free Ebook, download to a topic your writing about.  

When given the choice weather to pay $.50 for an ebook or download then same thing for free which one would they choose?  Why free of course.  

#4 Breakthrough

For example science and technology headliners constantly show breakthrough.

Breakthrough in Nrf2 Science or Nrf2 Still Wondering Why You Need It which one stands out more?  

As a science geek I can tell you the first one.  I’m always looking for newest studies and research with a proven breakthrough.

And lastly #5 Numbers

The most popular numbers in headlines are 3, 5, 7, 9 and 13.

Numbers grab the readers attention!

Numbers spark interest, sending attention to key points you want the reader to know.

Traffic and engagement keep your blog exciting and fresh.  Comment on other blog sites and engage with the authors.

    Hi Alicia,
    Great point you have here, it is about how we communicate and what language we use. Before anything, you have to speak the language that is in the head of your perfect prospect.

    Great suggestions, thanks, Alicia. I recently spent some time adding titles to the Coschedule Headline Analyzer. It gives you a score and lets you know if you’ve used important power or emotional words. I learned a lot from it.

    These are excellent tips. In many ways, this process is like a big puzzle and we’re working to fit all the pieces together. It is certainly worth it when everything comes together – this morning I checked Google for the keyword in the article I published yesterday and the piece was the first article on the first page. Yee ha!
