    Default Learn how to write an SEO-friendly headline

    One of the biggest complaints from journalists seems to be that SEO is killing their headlines. Instead of being poetic in titles, journalists now have to use “SEO-powered words”. While I love a good pun as much as anyone, the

    SEO-powered words” get your content found. Not using them loses you traffic.

    When U.S. Airways Flight 1549 crashed into the Hudson River, The New York Times was the first outlet to break the story. For some reason, they didn’t use the term “plane crash” in the title and created something clever instead. The result was that no one saw their story. All of their readers and their potential readers were searching for “plane crash”. They missed out the thousands (millions?) of people who were frantically searching for information about what had happened.

    You can’t do that. And yet it happens with papers every day.

    Yes, that is good alert. Title of a website too give a part in ranking a website for a keyword search. As well as attractive title attracts more visitors to a website. Title is the very first impressive thing of a website. SEO guys have to give priority to it.

    Hello friends.....

    Here is a brief synopsis of how this article explains how you can write user friendly and search (SEO) friendly headlines:

    • Make it simple for users by forming clear and descriptive headlines.
    • Don’t try to be too tricky or clever (unless your goal is to entertain).
    • Break up the page with subheads for easy ingestion and scannability.
    • Make it brief and to-the-point.
    • Include keywords in a natural way.

    Page titles and headlines are a very important part of your page both for your visitors and for search engine spiders.

    Thanks.....

    Very informative thread. Eventhough we have quality contents, without attractive title we should not grab visitors. BTW Thanks for sharing.
