Are You Breaking The Law, But Don’t Know It?
A headline has less than a second of a site visitor’s attention.  So, your title better be good.

If you're using images under Google for pasting into your blog posts, you may be infringing on copyrights.

Here's how to find images from Flickr. You can use these pictures for your website without infringing any copyrights. http://www.flickr.com/search/advanced/

Go to Flickr Advanced Search AND CHECK OFF ALL 3 BOXES AT THE BOTTOM FOR THE ADVANCED SEARCH.

Another site I came across (unknown destination) is:

What did you think of my title for my post today? Did it catch your eye?

So, your title better be good.

Write for Readers First and Search Engines Second - some bloggers try to write titles that are so optimized for search engine optimization that they forget their actual readers. It's possible to have a post that ranks really well in Google but that is so poorly worded that even though it ranks #1 nobody will click on it - keep readers as your #1 priority. >Problogger Darren Rowse 05/23/09<

When I think of a topic for my blog post, I usually sleep on the title. Not literally-it's like after completing a manuscript. The idea or writing needs time to cool. In posting an attention grabbing article, the idea and especially the title needs time to simmer. And I happen to do my best thinking in REM.

When or how do you come up with your compelling blog post titles?

Just one more idea if your muse is sleeping... Blank page, I shall thwart thee!

Flip open the paper or a magazine article and check out the title.

A compelling title will *Conquer All Obstacles* by catching the attention and drawing the reader into the post. After all, is it not the title that gives the reader a reason to read what you have to say?

Spend the time to be creative. The words you choose in the title may be the ‘do or die' to your next blog post.

Thanks

Yes, I agree. You want people to read your work, so if you introduce yourself badly in your title, then people won't bother to read further. Thanks for your advice.

A Great Title

 

 

 

 Kinda common sense. But it's amazing how many author's titles just aren't 'grabbers' and yet after reading the column, many cool ideas come to me. Perhaps it's not so simple for some.

 Thanks for your comment.
