100 Exciting Headline Words & Adjectives to Increase Viral Blog Traffic

Remember when you were in grade school and your teacher told you to “never judge a book by its cover”? And maybe at that time in your life you really took that advice to heart? I surely did, at the library I would always read the summary at the back of novel even if the book sleeve was boring and ugly. But man fast forward a couple decades and oh how have things changed.

One kids now don’t go too libraries even close to as much as we did (Thanks Steve Jobs?) and two modern day humans have the attention span of squirrel 🙂 and everything is judged at face-value. Don’t like a TV channel, click, and now you have 200 more options. Start a movie on Netflix and don’t like the first 10 seconds, click, thousands of new movie options. Don’t like a song playing on Spotify, click, millions of new song options.

Why this matters to you is that blogging also faces to same “short-attention span” problem. Say your blog is about WordPress plugins and you have a great article that ranks in the top 10 on Google for the search query “Top WordPress plugins to speed up your blog”. As soon as a user searches for this query and the results show on Google, your blog must compete with the other top queries in not just ranking but ability to attract eyeballs. Because users on search engines don’t care or have the time to determine if you have best content from all the front-page results. They are looking for an instant answer to their query and the winning blog post, the one that gets clicked, will always be the one that has the best title or “cover”.

So, with that said it’s your job that if you want your blog to be successful and your posts to get traffic you must write attractive, catchy blog headlines & titles. I’ve written a few guides on this topic but in this post, I simply want to share with you a list of “spice” words and adjectives which if added to your titles will help to significantly increase your click through rate.

100 Headline Words & Adjectives to Help Your Blog Posts Go Viral:

So, with no further ado here they are. After many years writing I’ve made a sort of personal reference documents of things I like to include in my writing. This is a small portion of that guide (maybe I’ll write an eBook on writing blog posts in the future). But for now, h­ere are 100 tile words & adjectives which I regularly use in headlines to make readers look twice and click!
