Hey! I’m Diltoshi Nakamoto, and in this article, I will help to write a magnetic headline that drives 10 times more traffic on your blog.

Why you should have to write a magnetic headline.

A headline determines the quality of your content and how much traffic you will gain. And it is the ultimate door to your business growth. And if you have not achieved it yet. Then you will waste your time. It won’t matter how well researched content you write.

1. Use Specific numeral numbers in your headlines:

Research has shown that a headline with a specific number generates more attention rather than a general one.

From the above example, we can see 2nd one is easier to read than the 1st one

But do you know the psychology behind the odd numbers in headline writing?

Often, you find viral blog posts with seemingly random odd numbers in the headlines and you may have stopped to wonder why the authors didn't use even numbers. And finally, you click on those posts and you read.

2. Utilise Rationales

Don’t forget to include rationales in your headline such as Tips, Ideas, Ways, Facts, strategy etc.

No one likes to waste their time on itsy bitsy stuff, they like to invest their time on good things that are simple to understand and entertained them.
So, when you add rationales in your blog title it makes it more entertaining and clickable.

3. Use adjective:

The adjective is the honey of your headline. An adjective indicates how comfortable to grasp your content. People like to read simple content that is suitable to grasp.
