You might write about Top take-aways from whatever , myth &facts or even advise from experts but the bottom line is to get your audience to read it , acknowledged your thoughts or even made a few sales ,

Not every post is going to get your motor running. Some posts will feel like a chore, but if you have editorial control over what you write about, then choose topics you'd want to read.

So to get over all of this i have compile together ways to get you write your blog post in more less-boring way (sometimes writing can be boring even with the topic you love) so let's get started....

1. Pick a topic you want to write about.

Blog-post-pick-your-topic
There are many reasons you would like or not like to write about a topic but some are indescribable , for me there are topics that i personally don't want to write about not because i don't have the knowledge to write about them but because i just don’t feel like writing them ( maybe there is a little passion in there ) but the important thing is to pick a topic you're passionate about.

2. Research more.....

The No.1 key i consider when writing a blog post is that i am not perfect , so though i might have an in-depth knowledge of what i want to write about but i make it a point when writing a blog post that i don't know anything so i start researching for that particular topic just like a normal person trying to know something until i feel comfortable with the knowledge i had consume on top of the one i had then i start writing.

3. Outline your work.

Your credibility and authority will take a major hit if you publish inaccurate information, and even if you have a blog with millions of loyal readers, your regulars will be all too eager to jump all over your mistake – just take a look in the comment sections of publications such as TechCrunch to see how quickly this can happen.

5. Use images

Before we jump to types of blog post to run a successful Blog lets first look at the Blog post title formulars

Why You Need A Powerful Blog post Title ?

Blog post titles are important when it comes to Search engine optimization (Seo) , i know you might have come across this alot especially if you are being curious about the whole SEO thing , but there is a reason this is being talked-about most of the time Because of the constant policy amendments from google and the spikes in number of bloggers , recently there has been alot of newbies in the field of blogging and i have seen quite a lot of people using the wrong keywords in their post , like what's in the body is not even related to what in the post titles.

So i've compile a fomular to make this works

What you should put in mind when writing a blog post titles and what works

This might be something that you might experience yourself but have you ever notice that when you did a search on google although the first result have the highest probability of getting clicked but you tend to choose the result that is most intriguing and captures your eyes the most.

That is why if 10 visitors see your blog post title 8/10 people will first read the title and only 2/10 people will read the article. Hence writing a blog post title that grabs eyeballs is very necessary if you want to get more traffic.

So for that reason You should definitely have a targeted keyword phrase, preferably a long tail keyword.

Keep in mind that when you write a blog post title for SEO, there is another half to the traffic equation. The way a title grabs a visitor.

What you should include in your Blog post Title.

It really depends on what your blog post is all about and what information you want to share with the world But you should narrow down your keywords and it usually comes down to this 4 steps to consider in deciding your blog post title

1. Informational

people use this alot when they want to find information about something and they use words like :
How
Who
where
tips
examples
guide
tutorials

2. Navigational

usually used when people want to find a name of product or a particular brand like google , facebook , wordpress and a handful of other's

3. Commercial

Words like pricing , review ,top , best, comparison are very handy in commercial .

4. Transactional

In Transactional as you might have guess words like buy , coupon , order , purchase , cheap , price will save alot of time .

But still Using only this keywords is not enough the title has to offer them some form of benefit, and it has to draw them in.

Which would you rather read ?

Best Status updater's
OR
15 Amazingly status updater's in 2020

Of course the last one not because of the power of the adjective (amazing) in there but it also promises the reader that the status updaters are amazing .

Getting traffic is tough , keeping them engaged via good blog post title on your blog shouldn't be that tough. (But it is) Luckily there are few tips and tricks to write a blog post title that works. Rather than doing your own trial and error method, I have collected tips from all across the internet and presented in an easy to understand manner.

There are many other ways in which you can optimize your post title which include:

1. Using numbers and negative words in blog post title.

2. Having a specific headline not a generic one.

3. Headline should match the content of your blog post

4. Odd numbers perform better than the even numbers

5. The blog post title should be under 65 characters

6. Avoid words with multiple meanings

7. Include power verbs and interesting adjectives

8. The title should be interesting enough for to make the user to share it with friends.

LET ALSO USE THIS FORMULAR:

“Number / Trigger Word Adjective Keyword Promise” strategy

Let's take an example

23 Unbelievable Ways To Stop Eating At Night

This is a perfect example of a blog post title that includes:

1. Number – 23
2. Adjective – Unbelievable
3. Keyword – Stop Eating At Night
4. Promise – It promises the reader to stop eating at night So do try out the formula and come with viral blog post titles!

NOTE : People are always online looking to find a solution , If you can produce content that answers there question then that would definitely drive traffic to your blog.

Always start by doing keyword research finding out what people are looking for.
Perform solution based research Next, once you have narrowed down the keywords you'll be using , be sure to add them within your blog post title.

When people do a quick Google search they are more likely to click on search results that include the keyword they typed into the search bar .
