    I definitely agree. Coming up with a catchy, SEO friendly title for my articles have been the hardest part of writing my articles. I always try as much to keep them relevant so that the reader knows right away what I am talking about — but making them catchy and “clickable” is the hardest part. Thanks for sharing these tips.

    I’m mainly a writer, not a blogger. I exist in the blog-o-sphere just to showcase my writing. But coming up with a title that captures attention is essential. Will share this post with my true-blue blogger friends. Cheers.
