“10 tips for writing catchy blog titles” or “10 tips for writing a good blog”
You must be thinking why numerals? Because they are eye-catching and you can guess the length of the article. You can create catchy and creative title like above example.
First important thing is the idea of your blogpost and then try to write a title based on that idea. Consider that idea of your blog is “Cybersecurity related blogs to read” then you can form a title like=

Let’s see I have created a catchy title =
“7 things no one will tell you about their first day in the college”

“How to start your day?”
Titles like these are engaging for the readers that’s why they are more popular than other titles for the blog posts. These titles are clicked by thousands of readers because whenever we want to search something, we type our query in the search engine and it displays a list of articles but the “how to” articles are get clicked first since they provide solutions to our queries.
Let’s look at the popular title like these:
“How to get rid of malware”
We learn from our own mistakes and if you want to explain this to your readers through your blog then you can include phrase like -“mistakes to avoid” in your blog title because this title informs the reader about what can affect them and where should they pay more attention.

“Mistakes to avoid while writing a blog”
It is also a way to ask question to your readers through a catchy title! Increase the excitement of your readers and let them think about the content of your blog. This will increase your readers involvement and they will try to answer the question.
Let’s take a look at how to include a question in your title, for example –
“Malware? Here is why”
Like this try to create your own provocative questions!!
“Here’s why more readers are not reading your article”
Such a titles work great because through them you are pointing out a problem and also informing your reader about the reasons behind the problem at the same time you trying to provide solutions to them!
“Penetration testing methods”
Now titles containing keywords sparks interest and at the same time they are eye catching. You can include a question in such titles or make it look more informative or educative to your readers like above example.
“Become a successful entrepreneur with following tips”
This type of titles is flexible and you can combine them with phrases like boost or increase or get more and many more. Thus, you can have a number of possibilities, so start thinking!
“Cloud hosting Vs. Dedicated hosting”
This is a simple example of a title which is short and it informs the readers that they are going to read about the comparison between two types of web hosting services. You can write this title in other way, like as follows:
“Difference between cloud hosting and dedicated hosting”
People find comparisons helpful. Also, before downloading or purchasing a new equipment people always compare them with other product because they want a better product than other products available in the market.
