In order to make your post heading extra ordinary you need to add some powerful words over there. Words such as – Oops, Secrets, Discover, Terrified, Danger, You Can’t, Shit, etc. Look at the following example that how you can use such kind of words. a) How To Make Money Online?b) How To Boost Blog Traffic?

So by the example above you can see that how by mixing some strong/powerful words can make your topic extra spicy.
2. Use Popular Names in the heading:
Here comes one of the most interesting way which I like the most.

Read the following example: a) How To Write Quality Articles?b) How To Optimize Your Blog SEO? Same as point 1. Here the article’s heading looks little boring and can’t drive much traffic.

People are in search of queries which are done over in those Parliament meetings. Aren’t you aware of those matter? Shout, Throw chairs, and making mess. Yet, controversial posts contain some argument of any specific topics. And it can easily go viral if it disagree with any popular trends over internet. Such as: 1.

How-to posts also have high tendency of going viral easily and also in very short period of time. There are probably hundred other reason and one of them are that it’s search engine friendly too. As there are millions of people who search in the search engine, let’s say Google about “How to” topics. So there are higher chances to get traffic from search engines. Though I wouldn’t say that you would instantly rank yet it could make your post viral.
5. Write List Posts:
List posts also have higher demand and tendency to rank higher in search engines and too to make your blog post viral easily. What is list posts? Oops, I totally forget to tell you what is it. List post means a list of a specific topic, such as – a) 10 Fascinating Ways To Boost Traffic.b) 101 Ways To Write Great Articles.c) 50 Ways To Make Your Post Go Viral. And yet, don’t forget to give a great amount of details when you are writing a list post. Don’t simply give the points over there as it looks little mess without information.
