So you have a blog post written with amazing content that you just know everyone should read.    You put the time in researching and writing an amazing blog post.

But many forget an important aspect. Taking out time to write catchy titles!

Your content is so important that I compiled a list of over 200+ catchy title examples to help you write better headlines.  


First, why are Blog Titles and Headlines so Important?

If you are reading this article, just give a thought about this – “What interested you to click and read this article?”

The title of the article, isn’t it?

Blog titles are the gateway that drives traffic to your website. If the reader finds the title of a blog interesting, then he might click on the link. Otherwise, he would just scroll past, just like several other blog posts on the internet.

When you meet a person for the first time, in under three seconds you form an impression about the person in your mind. The same is true for blog titles as well.

You just have five seconds to captivate the mind of the readers. After reading your blog title, in five seconds the reader decides whether he wants to read that piece or not!

Your title specifies to the readers what they can expect or get from reading the blog post. It should be interesting and make the reader compelled to click on the post link.

According to research only 2 out of 10 people who read your blog title, end up reading the whole blog post! That means 8 out of 10 people just read your title and run away! 

Catchy titles must capture both the attention of the reader and the search engine. It is also important to use your intended keyword in the title, without disrupting the cadence of the blog title.

Ideally, you should include the keyword within the first 60 characters of the blog title. This will help the blog post rank higher in SERPs.

Let’s dig in and get you started writing catchy headlines for your next blog post.
