200+ Awesome Blog Post Title Templates for Powerful Headlines

One of the most important skills for any blogger is the ability to write headlines that capture attention and interest. With so many different blogs and websites out there, you’ll need to convince and entice readers to give your content a chance.

The job of a the blog post headline is to get browsers on social networks or Google search results pages to click through to your content, and then to begin to read the text of the article. Once that visitor arrives at your site/blog, the title becomes less important than the content itself, especially the introduction and opening paragraphs.

Although the post title or headline is just a few words, it’s not always easy to write. In fact, writing effective headlines in today’s world of short attention spans and massive amounts of content is quite challenging.

If you struggle with writing headlines, like I do, one of the best ways to improve your skills is to study the titles and headlines that other websites and blogs use to capture your attention.

In many cases you can use templates to create highly effective titles and headlines, regardless of the niche that your blog covers.

Recently I’ve been compiling a lot of headline templates so I can put them to use when I’m struggling to create an effective headline on my own. I decided to turn this collection into a post and publish it so other bloggers can benefit from these blog post title templates as well.

Simply fill in the blanks with keywords that are appropriate for your content or niche and you’ll have headlines that are capable of gaining additional exposure for your blog.

This list can also be really helpful for brainstorming and coming up with plenty of blog post ideas on just about any possible topic.
