6 Tools for Creating Titles and Articles That Make Readers Click


The article title: for many, it’s the hardest part of writing an article. At some point in every writer’s life, there’s the struggle to create a quality article title. Creating a click-thru generating title takes even more creativity.

The brutal reality in this world of short attention spans and information overload is that the headline is often more important than the actual article itself.

Discussing the importance of great headlines, Brian Clark of CopyBlogger writes:

“Your headline is the first, and perhaps only, impression you make on a prospective reader. Without a headline or post title that turns a browser into a reader, the rest of your words may as well not even exist.”

Your title is a critical component of getting people to click that link and read your article. If the title of your article isn’t compelling, people won’t click on it or share it via social media, plain and simple.

So what are you to do if you can’t write a great title or need ideas to help jump start the writing process?

Never fear. There are title generator sites that will get your creative juices flowing. With the help of these sites, you’ll never lack for traffic generating headlines for your articles. Below are six tools for creating titles and articles that make readers click.

Content Forest Generator doesn’t generate unique article ideas like the others, but based on the keyword you input, it’ll generate a list of titles that have already been created for that keyword. It’s a great way to see what’s been written around the topic you entered and potentially jump start an idea or two.
