4 Easy Ways to Make it (Nearly) Impossible Not to Click on Your Headlines

If you want people to come to your website and read your content, you’re going to have to create amazing headlines that will grab your visitors attention. Notice, the websites out there that have consistent viral content, like cracked.com for example, they use amazing headlines that you can’t help but click on to find out what the story is behind the headline. These are the types of headlines that you should be creating for your own content. Here are some rules to help you craft the perfect headline:

First, use some sort of number in your headline. Top 10 lists are always popular. Five ways to do something is also a great way to get clicks. It doesn’t really matter what number you choose, although 10 does seem to get more results than anything else. You should always use some sort of number in your headline when writing a post that gives a certain number of tasks to complete.

Second, use great adjectives. Come up with some great adjectives that will make people want to click on your headline. Words like unbeatable, amazing, astounding and many others can all be used to craft a headline that is nearly impossible not to click on. Again, look at
buzzfeed.com and cracked.com to see what sort of headlines they are creating.

Third, make your headline unique from everyone else’s. Use words that other people aren’t using in your headline. In fact, make your article and your headline as unique as possible. You need to stand out from the crowd. Add your own personal flavor by not being part of all the other headlines out there. If you are competing against viral websites and using the same headlines, you are going to lose. They have more writers, more money and more experience to get traffic to their site. So, that means you need to stand out as much as possible.

Fourth, a great trick to use is to make an irresistible promise. Of course, you have to follow through with that promise in some way. You can be creative and still make a promise that will lead your readers to want to click on your post. For example, suppose you created this headline: “How to Lose Weight by Eating More”. This is the type of headline that people would definitely click on, because people that want to lose weight also want to eat. You could write an article about eating “negative” calorie foods, like celery or any other foods that burn more calories eating them than they actually provide.
