How to SEO your headlines

Do you remember in an earlier post when I explained the importance of headlines for grabbing attention?

I wrote that users will decide to stay or leave your website or blog in 8 seconds or less – so it makes sense to draw in readers with a great headline.

Today let’s look at headlines again, but this time from an SEO perspective. 

The title of your blog post is one of the first things Google sees when indexing your site. And let me add another SEO tip here –  Google will take the first words of that title as your most important. So it’s worth your while thinking carefully before you write that headline.

Use my earlier tips on how to maximise your blog’s SEO with keyword questions to find the most sought-after keywords for your subject, then include those words in your title.

Simple when you know how!
