First I title my subject with something I know will be changed but being able to glance at my first title while I’m writing keeps me on track with my subject matter.
I write and try my best to stay on subject, get to the point without too much fluff, but make my post long enough making great points that the bots get a meal and determine that my content is viable and useful enough for others to read. Bots don’t really like a little empty snack they be hungry for great content.
Now that I have written reread and edited my post it is still a grammatical nightmare because I’m a not a writer, good thing there isn’t a grammar bot so it will still work for the purpose it was intended, information.
Alrighty!... I have my text and know what the main subject is. So back to the title I go. My subject is “how to find relevant keywords that represent what I’m trying to convey in my message so they get found in search.” That is a little lengthy so I used “How to get your shit found in search.” I do know that wouldn’t work but it will keep me on track.
Finding your title is a matter of reverse engineering your thoughts. Don’t try and get fancy and cute, be straight forward and to the point to create something that will work. If you have an educational piece “How To” is something to think about including in your title, how to is a highly searched term. Lists are often sot after I believe 10 things gets the most searches. Watch Google's Autocomplete as you type the suggestions are some of the more common searches made for the words you are typing. You want to use words that people are searching for.
- Title your article if you need to before you start writing.
Write your article. Bigger is better the bots love content.
Think about your subject and how, when, what, or where.
Be specific not general when describing what you wrote.
