There is a sneaky reason why I used that post title. It has more than one meaning depending upon where you are in your blogging experience.
For the beginning blogger, you’ll likely infer that the headline promises that you will get a good amount of traffic from reading this article.
For the intermediate blogger, the headline promises that you will get good quality traffic.
For the advanced blogger, the headline promises the reader copious amounts of quality traffic.
In this article, I’m going to reveal my best performing headlines for various reasons. Here they are listed in no particular order.
When people search for one product name versus a competing product name, the likelihood is that the searcher has already made a buying decision and is looking to confirm their buying choice.
I have several articles which compare one product against another competing product and am always surprised by both the quantity and quality of traffic.
Here’s another example:
People are obsessed with tools and love playing with them. They believe that investing in a good tool can help them move towards success… and they’re right. I’ve invested in plenty of different tools now that have moved me closer to what I desire to achieve online.
The headline makes sense because people always want the best of things, so a headline such as “Best Internet Marketing Tools” really does pull some great buyer traffic to your site.
We all know that WordPress plugins helps us to gain additional functionality to our site and gives our site a unique difference in a very crowded marketplace, however what could be better than having the words “best” and “free” in the same sentence?
People’s attachment to having the best and for free makes this a headline which pulls a good quantity of traffic, although they’re mainly information hunters rather than buyers.
However, if you set up your page well here, you can interlink to other “buyer pages”
Who wouldn’t want to advertise their services for free? You never know who might be reading the blog post like it’s a directory for services to Internet Marketers, so it only makes sense for people to take advantage of the offer I give for people to promote themselves.
You only need to look at the paparazzi satisfying the insatiable demand of the American/British public.
This post attracts a lot of attention because Will Smith is famous and his words of wisdom carry some common credibility since he is a high earning actor.
The headline here is controversial as people are curious as to why intelligence sucks. After all, we’re all conditioned from childhood to believe that intelligence is the trait that wins the game of life.
The kid that goes on to get the most qualifications gets the best jobs and earns the highest income.
Who doesn’t like a good old fashioned conspiracy theory? Like it or not, the government have more control over you than you think!
This arouses curiosity in the reader’s mind and inspires your reader to click through and read about ‘mass conspiracy’ and how and why the government, a generally trusted authority, is involved in it.
People love tangible results (ie. make $9,643 in 11 days or lose 17lb in 37 days) as they bring something measurable to something abstract and naturally more difficult to conceive.
People also love actionable step-by-step processes.
A good step by step process is often rewarded with lots of comments and lots of sharing, so it is well worth preparing this sort of content for your blog.
There’s no doubt about it… people are attached to their mistakes and want to know how they can save themselves a lot of pain by learning from the mistakes of others.
Who wouldn’t want to know the potential pitfalls that lie ahead should you make a few ill-informed judgements?
People want to know what they’ve been kept in the dark about. Why is “direct traffic” an illusion? Is everything not what it really seems?
A credible author writing a headline like this can pull a lot of traffic due to the curiosity factor, which is one of the top copywriting tricks to get your emails opened and blog posts read.
