Remember the time when blogging was considered a niche career choice? Well, we certainly can’t because those days are long gone. Today blogging is an integral part of mainstream marketing practices. Blogging can be leveraged to drive massive traffic to your website.

Now blogging may seem all fun and games, but it can get a little tiring to maintain the steady base of followers and visitors. Some statistics suggest that nearly 36% of B2B marketers are struggling to produce engaging blog content, while 9% of these marketers are struggling to create different types of content that will get clicks and drive huge web traffic.

In such cases, the trick is to constantly reinvent the kind of titles presented. This is why you need to be well-versed with different types of blog titles, some of which are mentioned below.

1. List format

This is possibly the most oft-repeated type of blog post titles. List posts are used to simplify information. It comes in a well-defined numbered list that’s easy for your readers to go through, share and eventually put into practice.

Some, however, are averse to the idea of list post titles as they feel it’s been done to death, but still, nobody can deny its effectiveness.

Still, think it’s overrated? Then you can check out the articles and cover stories of popular magazines, which comes with a title such as, 101 Ways to Save for College or 10 Exercises for Tighter Abs, Top 10 thesis help website list etc.

2. The Ultimate Guide Title

The purpose of creating such blog post titles is to guide readers along the way about a particular process. These post titles are supposed to be an ultimate resource because a guidepost has every information that you’ll possibly require to help you learn.

Generally, guidepost titles take up a lot of time to put together, as you have to elaborate on every step of the process, for the better understanding of your readers. So it’s needless to say that such posts would be lengthy.

Now you can’t prepare such elaborate write-ups in a matter of 4 hours, as you’ll have to conduct thorough research to come up with the best content for your readers. But the good news is that these posts can generate tons of website traffic and help your content to rank high on search engine results page.

3. Titles for interviews

It’s no secret that such formats are widely appreciated. The reason, interviews provide an outlet to know the secrets of influential people in a particular industry, which can be further applied while developing business strategies and achieve similar success.

Also, the influencers or experts also share the post with their audience across social media sites. This can be leveraged to generate traffic to the site.

When those you interviewed share your content, their audience will also share it among themselves, and the circle goes on. So, in this case, you need to make sure your questions are precise and legible to draw out the most value from those you’re interviewing.

4. The ‘Backed By Science’ Title

Humans are constantly caught in the rut of learning bias. Irrespective of how alarming a statement is, we are only likely to accept it as the truth when it comes from a trustworthy source.

Even then, we are most fascinated by the ultimate truths that spur us into action.

So, you can apply the same logic while creating blog content or your product or service. Focus on how it’s going to make someone’s life better. So make sure you create your content by including extensive research and statistics and let your titles reflect that as well.

5.   The “Best” Title

These headlines are extremely potent for SEO. These variants of titles speak right to the web searches of your consumers. For instance, if you try to find ways to save your monetary resources, wouldn’t you rather do it the best way? Or would you be happy with the less effective way? Such titles call out to these needs.

These headlines are ideally exact-match searches; beginning with the words, “the best way to…”.

6.  The ‘Click Bait’ Title

When it comes to curiosity, humans are often as good as cats. Hence, titles that spark that curiosity are bound to be effective.

Some content creators have honed the art of catching the reader’s fancy with the clickbait titles. They create titles that come across so alluring that we cannot help but click.

Now here’s the pro tip, if you’re going to use this tactic, you must deliver content that excites as much as the title. If not, you’ll only end up irritating your audience.


Would you like it if someone serves you the same type of porridge every day for breakfast, lunch and dinner? The answer is obviously, no. The same applies to your readers and consumers. So if you want a steady flow of traffic to your website, you need to consider these blog title alternatives.

    Something very provocative and emotional always for my other websites, but it can be dangerous to play with those titles.What many people use on YT this days is: [adjective]+”keyword”+[emotional part]

    For example Crazy success stories which will make you cry.

    Here i used this constriction and it seem to be working well on YouTube 🙂

    Good article! Do you think your main keyword should be at the beginning of your title for SEO purposes?

    I’m also going to use the “backed by science” tip so thanks very much.
