SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., July 3, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Every minute of every day, readers are being bombarded with content from an innumerable amount of sources. With so many titles, links and paid ads, it may seem impossible to grab a reader's attention, but this is simply not true by following these three top tips from the Atlanta Reputation Management Firm of Reputation Maxx.
1. Length is Important
No one is going to click on a link with a title that is 20 words long. In today's fast-paced and instant-gratification society, less is more and this is certainly true when it comes to writing an attention-grabbing title. The ideal length for a title is 8-14 words, and no more than 90 characters. A shorter, wittier and more poignant title is always better than one that drags on forever. There are only so many characters that Google and other search engines will show for a link - make sure that the title fits on this designated line.
2. Make Sure the Content Promised is Delivered
It is never a good idea to write a catchy title just to get a reader to click on it, when in reality; the article has little or nothing to do with that title. The Atlanta Reputation Management Firm of Reputation Maxx shares that writers should never misrepresent the content of their article or blog post, yet so many people do just so that they can get clicks. It is also important to have content be at a relevant length - anything more than 700 words is unlikely to be read all the way through, so keep that in mind.
3. There are Always Exceptions to the Rules
As with anything in life, there are always exceptions to the rules when it comes to a note-worthy and attention-grabbing tile. If the content is about an influential or well-known person/business, for example, it is safe to say that within reason, a long title will still grab the attention of readers. Other times, if an event is newsworthy enough, a long title will still gain widespread readership, shares Atlanta Reputation Management Firm Reputation Maxx.
