Don’t Make BlogRush Headline Mistakes

September 22nd, 2007 posted by · 3 Comments

BlogRushA lot of your BlogRush traffic depends on how appealing your headline title is on your blog posts.  If it sounds boring, no one is going to want to read it.  John Reese recently highlighted several mistakes to avoid and what to do to make your titles appealing to visitors.  Of course with BlogRush, the more visitors you receive, the more exposure your site gets on other sites.

Here’s a sample of what John mentions in his post: 

  1. Keep it simple. Don’t use “slash” multi word variations of the same thing like “authority/expert”. This is not only confusing to read, but it also takes up valuable character space.
  2. Appeal to everyone’s ADD. People are clicking on Blog Rush story links because they are goofing off and want to be distracted. So play to that and write things that sound juicy and entertaining.
  3. Never forget that everyone cares about themselves. Try and make all your headlines relevant to the readers self interest. People who want to be distracted can then rationalize that they are REALLY learning something if they click on a link which is supposedly work related *wink* *wink*
  4. Don’t lie in your Blog Rush headline. People will not only hit the “back” button faster then greased lightning if your story doesn’t deliver on what the headline promised, but they will be FAR LESS LIKELY to click on your future headlines.
