Blog Title and why it is important to be optimized.
Do you know it is important to have the first impression for your blog? Yes, it is important besides the design of your blog. Maybe it is the best way of creating that good first impression is through your blog post’s title.
Great written titles are important on many fronts and they are including the followings:
Grabbing attention in major search engines: You must have a great title on your blog because this is most highlighted that the readers would decide which result to click on when they go to Google and search for information most of the time. They would have a very little information to go by. There is a title, very short excerpt, and URL. You have to have your title stand out among millions of search results that the readers got after a research.
Getting RSS reader’s attention: Similarly, you need to have your title grab attention of those following your blog via RSS feeds in new aggregators. Those readers tend to scan the titles of posts for things of interest rather than reading full
text. They stop and visiting the posts that pique their interest.
Getting attention in social bookmarking sites: Apply the same principle to the social bookmarking sites such as Digg.com and Onlywire.com. They have the potential to send your site thousands of visitors based almost solely on the title of your blog post.
Loyal readers: Your good blog post title has a great impact on your loyal readers. It will make them pause as they roll their eyes down to your site because your blog title intrigues them enough to slow down their frantic web surfing and actually read some of the content that you have poured time and energy into.
Search engine optimization: Your good blog title can contribute to how search engines rank a page of your blog besides other factors they use. And one of the most powerful onsite factors is the words that you use in the title of the post. Most blogging platforms will include your title in the title tags of your post and the URL structure.
These two factors contribute to that page’s search engine ranking. On top of that, other bloggers often use your title to link to your blog and then your titles become a very important factor in ranking and generating traffic in search engines. Your blog post title is like an advertisement for itself and it can mean whether the readers would read your content or not. Creating a great blog title is a skill. Learn how to do it and you will appreciate it later.
