I wanted to give you guys more examples of titles. A good title can make all the difference of someone clicking into your post. Remember, readers like to feel like they are interested right from the start. So here are some examples of how you can word your titles:
The emojis show the readers reaction
😕 =I’m not sure
😄 = That look interesting!

😕=”I already know how to make Chocolate Chip Cookies.”

Do you guys see any difference in the two Titles? The titles with the 😕 Is causing readers to spend too much time in a liminal position. They are confused on if they should click in or not. If they are short of time or impatient, they will most likely save themselves the stress and say, “NEXT.” The titles with the 😄 is going to satisfy your readers appetite for curiosity, entertainment, and need for useful information. Us readers/bloggers in the WordPress community is more understanding on plain titles because we know how it is to not be sure on how to word it. But readers outside of the WordPress community can’t relate to the struggle, so they are fast to move on. So it’s important to give an enticing title that gives a clue about what’s in your post. So give them a hint that it’s worthy of reading by saying “irresistible” , “pungent” or “effective” in your titles.
My points for this post are the following:
- How you word your titles can be what causes a reader to click your post or not.
- Satisfy your readers appetite for entertainment and useful information by making enticing titles.
- If readers feel confused on their desires, they will more likely move on.
- Use words like “pungent”, “effective”, or “irresistible” in your titles.
