The Best Headlines are NOT for SEO

googlebot2As most of us know who have been blogging for any time, your title tag and header tags are an integral part of your SEO strategy.

But you may also realize that this is not the whole story.

It’s even more important these days that we maintain interest from our readership, as seen in the recent Panda and Penguin changes released by Google.

In fact, though SEO remains an important part of your blog traffic strategy, it is ever more important that you consider the humans vs bots you might be targeting in your post.

I talk a bit more about this here in a video which also shows you how to use the best tool I know of for helping you to create great Headlines.

Please share and like this post if you get something out of it or think someone else might, and I thank you in advance!


This post was written entirely without SEO in mind, in case it weren’t already obvious to the human reader! :)

  2. Hey Vicki,

    Great video as always! It’s been a long time, I hope all is well. I’ve been using this tool for a couple of years now and Its been a huge help. I have gotten away from using it the last few post so this is a great reminder! Time to go back and check out a few of my last headlines.

    Take good care,

      Hi Richard – great to see you again! It has been a while – glad you liked the reminder there, I always use this tool and have even gone back to update past headlines when I first began using it. Especially when doing any email marketing it’s particularly important to have a good headline or your message will never be opened!

      I hope you are doing well, and having great success in your business!
      All the best,

      Great to hear from you Richard, and sorry for the late reply! It has taken me months after a hacking of this blog to get things back in order and reply to comments (the only thing I could do was read, I just couldn’t log in :)

      Hope you had a great holiday season and are staying warm this winter!!
      Wishing You TONS of Success!

    The content is always major player when it comes to improving ranking of a website on search engine. Without having quality content on your website you can’t able to improve its ranking on SERP. Headline as his important role in making people to boost their interest in reading your post.
