Ever wondered on how you can write different post titles for Search Engines and Visitors? Read this post for a complete analysis on how to Optimize blog post title.
When a blogger actually starts writing a blog post with an idea in mind, he spends a bit of time on thinking what title should be given. Post title, if it is eye catching and classy, then it attracts more readers directly and if it is keyword rich, then it helps your post to rank better in search engines. Title of a blog or a blog post is the most essential thing and accounts for over 30% credit of the total post. So, wouldn’t it be awesome if you could actually write different title for search engines and your readers? For example,
If I am writing about some of the sources online to make money, then people will be more interested in How I earned 400$ last week from home, but search engines won’t actually be interested in ranking that post because there is no such proper keyword in the post title. Instead, if you give title such as How to make money online from home, you can rank higher in search engines.
