Writing a compelling blog headlines is crucial to getting people onto your blog post to read your content. Your blog article may rank on page one of Google, but people glance over the blog titles to decide which one to read.

Why Attention Grabbing Blog Post Titles Matter
Your blog headlines make a first impression on anyone who comes across your content in search engines or social media. So make it interesting and irresistible to a reader. Your blog title should appeal to both people and search engines for SEO purposes. If you write boring blog headlines they won’t be interesting enough for anyone to want to explore further.
Words make all the difference in your blog headline. People tend to share blog content that include emotional headlines. These type of headlines appeal to a number of senses and encourage people to share in social media.
Do your blog post headlines cause a person to be curious about your content or not care at all? That’s what you need to think about when writing attention grabbing blog post titles. It can make the difference between getting traffic and social shares or not.

Love your tips and tools that you have shared here, thanks so much!
I agree on the importance of a strong headline. In the past I have used a headline checker tool called EMV (emotional marketing value) but from now on I will be using CoSchedule. Great info with a beautiful interface.
The blog generator headline tool is pretty awesome too! It is easy to get stuck when it comes to creating a great headline. Thanks again for sharing!
